Your choice of fabrics is HOT! Great bags.

I really adore these bags!  They are just super simple and cute.  I, like everyone else here, also gives you props on your choice of fabrics, you have great taste!

wow, thanks everybody for your feedback!

I live in Rome, Italy and I often find fabrics in...something similar to thrift shops, I suppose. The sad thing is that quantities are limited: once a fabric is gone, is gone. Those were sold as multipurpose covers (like, to put on the sofa, on bed, etc) so you couldn't even choose the quantity.

lifetofullest: I didn't used a tutorial for these, but in the past I learned the basics to sew a bag from the Jordy tutorial on this forum. These are simple tote bags, and you can easily follow that tutorial playing around with measures and number of handles to get what you want.

Loobylashes: that's true! thanks for the hint

Crafty girl: they are available on my site, where you can find the prices and other infos; you can find the link on my signature below or under my usericon (I don't know if selling is permitted on this forum, so I won't enter in details here- sorry)

TheEverFalling: they could be totally reversible if I could clearly understand what makes a bag reversible and what not Smiley)  I never got it well, haha. I left a hole to reverse the bag, so in the lining there is sewing on that hole, I guess this makes them not reversible, although the sewn part is not so evident. How I can make a bag reversible? sorry for the strange question  Grin

Those look awesome...a great size too!!  i am particularly fond of the fabric on the second bag!  You've got great taste in fabrics, obviously!  Great job!!  Keep it up!

edit...I went to your site and looked at the bags, and, just my opinion, they are worth more!  Especially if you are including shipping!!  But then I say this knowing that I have a hard time pricing my items at higher amounts!  My husband and friends keep trying to get me to stick up for myself more and not be afraid to give my items the value they deserve.  But I'm really self conscious, so its hard.  Anyway, I think they are great, and you should get more for your skill...People are paying for your talent and skills, not just the bag!!   Wink

Hi, Cimba: I am happy to see you posting on here. Your bags and fabric are great. I enjoyed your site. I do agree that the prices are too low,since you are paying for shipping. I wouldn't go under $40 US. But that's just me. Your fabrics are unique and so, you can ask for more. If your fabric is vintage, especially so.

Good luck and keep up the wonderful creativity that you flow in. Ciao!

I have a suggestion on how to make them reversible: What I do is this. You sew up the bottom and side seams in the bag, leaving the top open, then you put them together, inner and outer, wrong sides together, and then you could iron down your seam allowance. When that is done, you just pin the handles in place, and topstitch around the top opening of the bag. That way all seams are hidden!

 I hope that's not too confusing.

Janer, that's exactly what I do! Cheesy even when I'm not making things reversible. I just find it easier than leaving holes in the lining and pulling things through. Smiley
