11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Paisley City Tote - So CUTE! on: April 15, 2009 10:10:52 AM
I am so in LOVE with this bag (pattern from Keyka Lou). It could be just a tiny bit bigger, but that's okay for now. I'd show the inside but the lining is black. There is an inset pocket right below the button and another inside.
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Basic Floral/Denim Bag on: April 06, 2009 12:50:45 PM
I had some leftover fabric from sewing Bible covers for my son and I. (His was denim, mine was the floral/polka dot.) The bag is a little bigger than I'd wanted, but it's a good size for carrying books. I did the pockets from another bit of fabric I had left over from my first bag. I do wish I'd boxed the corners a little more so the bottom would be a bit wider and it would have taken up some of the height. Also I put the button hole on the wrong side - on the back instead of the front so the bag leans a little forward when my stuff is in it, which doesn't matter when I'm using it. I really wanted pockets all around, but darn it if I ran out of fabric. Fooey! (Really, the inspiration of the bag came from the little monster who stepped on my first bag during my son's ballgame Saturday and got muddy shoe prints on it. It came off but I don't want a repeat next game so I'll be bringing this one.Smiley

13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / first post - and first real bag attempt on: April 02, 2009 11:17:00 AM
I've been lurking for sometime and admiring all the beautiful bags. I finally got inspired to make one for myself. It isn't my first bag, but it is the first that came out looking like I wanted. I used this tutorial, which I found here, but changed up the dimensions. I made it wider so that I could easily fit my DSLR in it and reduced the height as well. If I had it to do over, I would lengthen the flap (I didn't take into account the fact that I'd widened the gusset) and make the zipper flaps narrow (I might still rip out the zipper and narrow the flaps but it isn't really a problem at this point.) Oh and I skipped the zipped pocket in the lining - that still frightens me -  LOL. Overall, I'm really proud of myself. Grin Now I want to make more!! Also planning a small wallet to coordinate.
