Here are a few of the purses I've worked on in the past month. I've really fallen in love with faux leather and although it can be quite challenging at times and break many needles, I love the clean look that result at the end.

 They're all very nice.  You're obviously an experienced sewer, but wouldn't the needle type prevent breakage?

These are all great.  The silhouette bag and the Eiffel Tower bag are especially striking!

Thank you. Using the leather needles definitely helps, but sometimes, layers just can't be helped. Accidentally hitting the zipper is another opps. I started making purses at the beginning of the year, but just started working with faux leather during the summer. I like how much cleaner it can look.

Thank you. I hadn't seen anything like those and wanted to try something new.

That's all very impressive.  I'd never have guessed it.  You might just have motivated me to dig out my bits and pieces and have a go at it.

Me too!  It's nice to have something durable with a professional looking finish. Kind of works against me now because my husband says that I should just make whatever has caught my eye.
