OK you asked for it ...This is my first tutorial so ask questions if you need too
to make this bag

***First gather materials.. and print patterns on full size sheet ......the material list is on patterns

Then first thing I do is I make the pocket (the pocket on this is is a bit smaller due to I ran out of fabric but it still works, size is really up to you) by sewing on three sides and all 4 corners to make turning easy. Turn pocket and sew across the top 1/4 in from edge... set aside and sew handles.
first by pressing then sew down the long sides on both sides of handle one each one

Press all interfacing to pieces, the only one I don't use interfacing is the main fabric that us used for front and back. but you can use interfacing if you wish.

Next sew the sides of the front and back pieces. where the pockets are
and turn , sew 1/4 inch from edge and on one piece place pocket where you wish and sew three sides

Sew big pockets to contrast pieces. by sewing lining to front and back pieces, by placing wrong sides together and using a 1/4 in seam and you will have this

sew lining to top of outer pieces. along top and dont forget to snip little slit in the curve...
now sew both pieces together , right sides facing  using a 3/8 seam. makes sure you are sewing outside the previous 1/4 seam, you don't want this to show through when you are done leave room at the bottom for turning
next take handles and place 2 1/4 inches from edge and sew in place.

you  should have just four pieces now...

after you turn sew seam closed as close to edge as you can.
last step . sew along top edge but make sure you pull handles away from bag

and then you have the finished bag

with deep pockets

you can add a snap or sew on velcro for closeure ..just be sure to center it

I sure hope you can all understand this
and Good Luck

ok this is the same pattern i used before. My own but I made the pockets a little deeper by coming up futher toward the top. So much more of the pretty fabric shows this way and its still easy to use!!!
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Palm tree bag- my own pattern ...link to tut on pag 2 on: May 15, 2008 08:27:16 PM
I love making this one.. Its fun to make. It has a pocket one esch side that is accesable from either side of the handle with the different color fabric on inside but showing through. I also added a cell phone pocket on one side just for fun.  What do you think?

I hate the idea of spending so much money for a simple leash ..So i decided o make her a special one
this is made out of a rose calico type fabric.

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Another Elvis, smaller version different pattern on: May 14, 2008 09:00:59 PM
ok this one has two pockets on each side and two inside...it is 13 by 10 and i used this pattern
signature style


but instead of a one piece front i did add the pockets, cause i like alot of pockets. I had to use that fabric again,, who knows I may make more...lol... anyone got any good ideas??............

here are both together, the  bigger one has solid black inside and the smaller one has bright green inside

I made this bag last night because i couldnt resist the fabric..
I used the artsy-crafty babe pleated tote pattern
I changed the handles by adding d-rings and added a pocket to the outside
Mainly just for the image on the material. I wanted to "frame"  it somewhat

this was cut from an old little girls sweatshirt, Since she is just a pup I couldnt find anything to fit so I have to make my own and when she gets bigger I will get a bigger sweatshirt.
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / new here and I love all your work on: October 23, 2006 04:31:34 PM
Ive been lurking around for a couple of weeks now and had to write and tell you all what a wonderful job you all do. I want them all!!!!
I am a sucker for purses the way some women are for shoes. I can never have enough. So I decided to start making my own. and it is turning into a business. I guess there are a lot of women like me lol

Here is one of my favorites that I made I hope you can see it.
This picture doesnt show the shape but it is made with silver lame fabric. the next picture you can see the shape but it isnt shiny because I didnt have enough lighting.
I'll add more of my purses later.

(I guess I better start posting if I want to add pics)
