I adore Craftster for inspiring me to attempt sewing again.  I've kept things small to re-familiarize myself and focused on handbags.  Here's my first presentable one!



Its a little tote with 5 inch round handles.  The lining was really tricky as I picked a fabric that was too slippery to play nice with the feed dogs.   I hope y'all like!

EDIT:  Here's a better pic of the bag's colors and a shot of the lining.

That's really nice. I like the fabric. Did you use a pattern or wing it? What does the lining look like?

Thanks for the reply!  I edited the pictures to include the lining.  I used a pattern from a book my mom had at her house this Christmas... I believe it was called Sew Easy Handbags or something similar.

I'm just getting back into this, but if any pictures are missing, let me know. Photobucket hates me.
