I wanted to make myself a bag... I truly badly wanted to make myself a bag...  wanted it so badly that ... I asked for a Birthday/christmas gift a ... sewing machine... And my mother agreed to offer me one... Of course, since I am a proud sewing machine owner, I used it to make a lot more and different projects but bags are still my favorite!

so here you go, bags bags bags... you can call it an addiction!! I made them all starting with patterns I found on this blog: http://isastuce.over-blog.com/

First is my teacher bag: I made it to carry my folders, papers, pens, crayons and everything a middleschool teacher needs Smiley






then I made two trapeze bags. I added some length on the strap of the second... I added a flap on them!



Then christmas came... I decided to step out of my confort zone: I bought an oiled cloth napkin, and I made this one for my sister, following the same pattern:


and a messenger bag, with an outside pocket for my sister in law:




I know... I am sooooooo addicted... And I still have some ideas of new bags, but luckily, I ran out of fabric to make them lol!!

the fabric of my school bag is from Ikea, the two trapeze and the messenger bag fabric is from a french shop called toto. They are furniture fabric, thick and colorful. The napkin was found at a cheap french store by my place. I learned something: the more colorful the best. So that's what I will peak next time I will go fabric shopping ( which will be in a while... pfffffff).

I used a pattern I found on this french blog. There is a whole bunch of bags patterns, she is awesome. For the trapeze bag, I give you the link to the topic directly Smiley

The straps are longer that the one she made. i also added a 'top' to close it. They are very small bags but you can increase the size easily. Have fun !!
