41  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / tote bag for school on: January 15, 2008 06:39:57 AM
I made this last night.  The fabric has lots of appliques on it (it came that way).  I used two layers of fusible interfacing and made a pocket and 3 pen holders.  I like how it turned out, it's big but not huge and still holds all my school stuff.

After making my first tote bag, my entire family wanted some so I went to work and made one for my sister, my mother, and my daughter.  Here are some pictures:

This is my my sister's tote, I added a cell phone pocket and some pen holders because she is going to use it for school.  It has a magnetic closure:

This one is for my daughter, it doesn't have any pockets and has a magnetic closure:

This is my mom's.  She is a teacher so she wanted a really big bag.  This material is gorgeous!  I love it.  The only bad thing is that I used heavy interfacing and for some reason when I turned the bag right side out the interfacing ended up all on one side of the bag and one side has none.  Sad  But it turned out pretty great otherwise.  It has magnetic closure and no pockets:

45  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / my first bag ever!!! on: January 08, 2008 09:03:00 PM
I just made this bag.  I kept coming here and seeing the tutorials and was never brave enough to try.  So today I made my mind up and found some cute fabric in my bin and went to work.  Here it is, I made it to carry my lighter textbooks to school.

  (sorry its so dark!)
46  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / need some help getting started please! (tote for school) on: January 08, 2008 03:51:12 PM
I have some cute fabric and want to make a tote bag sicne my classes start Monday.  I have the fabric cut out into a long rectangle right now becuase I can't decide if it will be stronger that way or if I cut four separate pieces for the body.  I am new at sewing bags so I really dont want my bag to fall apart the first time i use it.  My two textbooks that I will carry to school most of the time aren't super huge, the huge book will stay at home.  Anyway, I have some tutes bookmarked but again, i'm not sure what will be stronger.... any suggestions?
47  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / new to sewing, would like to try an easy bag on: August 14, 2007 02:11:43 PM
I am not an experienced seamstress, the only things I sew are hammocks for my rats, cage liners, and doll diapers for my daughter's dolls.  I was thinking I could try sewing a simple bag.  I want to make it a rectangular tote bag that I close with a large button.  I would like to be able to carry a textbook, a notebook, pens, and my phone but I dont want individual pockets as that sounds complicated.  Are there any tutorials you guys recommend for this type of project?  What type of fabric should I use?  There is a lot of really pretty fabrics on sale at JoAnns that is cotton but is too thick for clothing or blankets, I think it is used more for curtains or upholstery maybe... would that be ok? Anyway, all the suggestions I can get would be awesome. TIA!
