They're cute!  I like the pink one best...it's so glam!  Couple of questions...as usual  Wink  Are the bags lined?  What did you use for the strap on the pink purse?

Thanks! 
The fur fabric is a bit difficult to work with, but I just realized that if I use iron on interfacing, the lining works better as far a sewing it together.  (stays in place better)
Yes, they are lined, on the fucia bag, I used plastic and a black material to line it.  I made that for my daughter. 

As for the strap..I used plastic to see how it would turn out.  I think I made it to long though.

I've never sewed with plastic.  Is that a difficult thing to do?  I guess I'm worried about making mistakes (and leaving permanent stitch marks that were obviously mistakes)! Tongue

Sewing with plastic isn't really difficult, you have to use thin paper on both sides so the plastic doesn't stick to the machine and footer.  For whatever reason, I could not comprehend this.  I had to call the fabric shop to see what they suggested.  Now I just use notebook paper-it's more convenient.  They sell a product for this, but I'd rather spend my money on more fabric. Smiley 
As far as making mistakes...I haven't really made anything that shows my mistakes.  I made a few bags out of the plastic with lace on the outside for beach bags.  But you couldn't really see the seams.  I'll see if I have any of the plastic bags to show you.  I may have sold them all.
