First post, please be gentle..


Anyway, so I am taking a sewing class in school and we had a free day to make anything we wanted. Soo... being the loverly female that I am I created a bag. I cut out the fabric and such in school, but I actually made it at home.

Due to the fact that my sewing machine decided to go all wonky on me, I sewed it by hand...

Please gander on..



Voila!


side-ish view


Nice above view.. look at the pretty tie..


and it has a zipper!


Here it is opened. It's quite spacious inside.. Note: my wallet in there, a bottle of hand sanitizer, and a bottle of lotion... and a cute little bag I made to go along with it..


A close-up of the pretty inside fabric.


I did half pretty fabric and half black..


And here's the little bag I made to match.. Just look how adorable those flowers are :]


and here it is cinched and loaded with goodies..



and here is my cute little bag again!!




well, thanks for looking!
telling me what you think!!

it is not inertia alone that is responsible for human relationships repeating themselves, monotonous and un-renewed, it is shyness before all else.

I love the two color lining, because it's cute and also it seems like it would be easier to find things at the bottom!

Hello! One of my new swap partners has wisted your Retro Bag, and I need a little help.... (This is assuming I can get my machine working....) Could I get some basic measurements? I would really appreciate it. I'm SO glad you posted a tute. There's no way I could have figured it out on my own!


Thanks,

Jen

Very cute!  I am laughing to myself, because I remember these bags from when I was a teenager in the late 70's, early 80's, so I must be "retro," too!   Roll Eyes  Love it!
