I recently learned that I'm no longer afraid of my sewing machine!
After a lot of help from my friend, I made a purse. I've never even followed a pattern before, so I think it turned out pretty fun.
All the smaller bags I made myself, and didn't use a pattern.
I'm sure I can find the pattern number if anyone would like it for the bag.






The purple little bag was the hardest for me. However, I think I've mastered linings! haha.












C&C very welcome!! This is one of my very first sewing projects, so any ideas on improvement are helpful. Smiley

I really like this purse. The fabrics are fun and the shape you made is neat. The little coin purse is really adorable  Smiley You did a great job, I can hardly belive it is your first.

These are great - well done!  I would love the pattern number, if you could find it - I tried creating a pattern like that, but it... um... didn't work out so well.  Tongue  I really like your fabric choice too!

The pattern is "It's so easy, it's Simplicity" #2750. It was my first pattern that I've ever followed, so it really is very easy. Smiley
Thanks for the nice comments!
