I've been working on new bags these days, but I found that my first bag was a lot better than my 2nd and 3rd ones...

This is the second bag I make, it was really hard to sew the lining... so I got some creases in the sewing line.


I made this tulle and bow combination for the sides. I like them, but the bag finally turned out quite small due to my mistakes sewing! I don't know if I'm using it...


My third bag (using the same shape I made for the first one):


I used a nice badge I bought in Germany, and I also made this detail:


And... my first zippered pocket for the lining!


My 4th attempt with bags led me to make something like a fanny pack. I had this in mind before, but I was absolutely convinced of it after seeing this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=250523.msg2784228#msg2784228

And... This is the one I made!! I wanted to use vinyl piping, I didn't find it in the stores, so I made it myself!! (I'm really proud of that! Cheesy)






I love my new fanny pack, and I think that it finally turned out really similar to my style, so I think I'm using it a lot! (as you see, I always use black for everything, I love that colour).

Thanks for looking!

I want to learn how to make purses so badly! I went out and bought 30 empty cigar boxes so I could turn them into purses and they are just sitting here. The problem is that I just don't know where to start!

Your bags are lovely, especially the first one. Do you use templates?

No, I just try to read a lot and learn from the forum... Then I just draw the pieces in my mind and then over the fabric... I know is not a very professional way of doing it, but I'm trying to learn that way.

LOVE the first bag! It's so cute!  Great idea with the ribbon on the strap and the bows. Smiley

All three look awesome!!  I love the pink with the black, even if you aren't sure if you are using it!  It looks very dressy - you need a wedding or something to attend!
Have fun wearing your new fanny pack!!!

That fanny pack is too cute to be called a fanny pack!
I'd call it a cutesy pack.
I love it.
And the pink bow/tulle technique is pure magic.
I love it.
