They all look great. I think the 2nd bag is my favorite. I bought McCall's pattern 6045 too about 2 months ago. I finally decide I wanted to start making it and couldn't find my pattern so I bought another yesterday since they were on sale at Joann's.  I'd love to hear any tips for working with the pattern. I hope to work on my bag soon.

Beautiful work!

I bought the same pattern and was wondering if they wanted you to pick from one of the interfacings or use all 3. Glad to know.

Super Cute!

Creating something from nothing is the most theraputic thing in this world for my soul.

I'm not scared of my machine, but i'm terrified of patterns :[

I LOVE that first bag <3 and the doggie,  Smiley

Those are great!  Love your fabric choices!  I've been looking for a pattern like your second set of purses but now I don't know.  I really like the style of the first set too!  I have fabric just waiting for me to turn it into a purse...gotta get going on it!  Your purses are inspiring me to get on it a little sooner!

Thanks for all the kind words, they really mean a lot.  Cheesy

As far as working with the McCall's pattern, well the third interfacing is really hard to work with. When I went to go get it they were out of whatever it requested, but there was something similar that was fusible on both sides, so I'm not sure if that's why it was difficult?  Huh  But I didn't need temporary spray for it either, considering I have a pet birdy, I stay away from them anyway. Some people mentioned having to cut off the zipper, but I just centered it and sewed the rest up in the handles. Oh and I had the hardest time with the handles, I'm sure I did something wrong around the gusset, just not sure what that was, anyways, I had to get a jean needle to sew through it.  I thought if I tried this one again, I'd just use fleece on the gusset and the lining part of the gusset, ya think that would enough to keep it sturdy? But, when you start it, I'd like to know how it goes.  Smiley
