mini-mum Choosing out the fabric can be the longest step of the process sometimes.  

Gozer-  It actually is not as difficult as it looks.  10 being the hardset I would say a 7.  Maybe even a 6. Since the dividers are stitched last it eliminates some of the confusion that can come when sewing together more complicated linings.  The slowest part is measuring, cutting and interfacing everything.  It feels like it takes SO long, in comparison the sewing feels like it comes together fairly quickly.   I highly recommend the lock closure over magnets because you put the flap's lock section on after the whole bag is sewn.  This gives you a little more leeway to match up the 2 sections of the closure.   Magnets you have to put both sections so that the back of each magnet is in the lining.  Which makes lining everything up more critical.

That puppy bag is going to rock!

Plaid pineapple - thanks for the "scale rating" on that blossom bag. I have been looking at it for a long time but it intimidates me. I might be able to talk myself into a 6 project Smiley

plaidpineapple that plaid purse is very cute. I think sadly the flower fabric on the other one is "swallowing" a lot of the nice details.
I might have overread it but how did you stiffen them up?

Thank you all for all the nice comments on the pug purse.

Here are the Dachshund and Bulldog purse fronts, eyes still missing. Aside the Dachshund are his ears. Have to press them. And the black, velourish fabric I choose is great.....as a duster, because it magnetically attracts every piece of lint in 10 meters around me..Sigh
I am also working on little zippered purse versions of them all.


I am collecting any kind of skull shaped beads and patches-feel free to send me spare ones  ;-)

I also made this, which is a bit of failure for many reasons
1.the purse's nap and the band' s nap are opposite to each other in the back of the purse.  This is something I knew from the begginning but couldn't find a way to fix it, as the main purse is just one piece without seam at the bottom (I have tried the same design with seam at the bottom and it doesn't drape nicely)
2.The seam between the purse and the band is a mess
3. The purse seams unpressed though I pressed it
I' ll try to fix it tomorrow, maybe I will put some trimming lace or something to cover the mismatched nap and the bad seam

Crafting along nicely :)

liliv-1 I LOVE <3 the grey bag - the contrast stitching sets it off really nicely.

The peach one look awesome too - but guess we can't see the minutiae in photos.
