I'm not a purse girl, I am a pocket girl usually, but the latest onslaught of home made clothing in my wardrobe (in which I stupidly didn't put pockets) has created a need. That and I needed a bag for my camera because I lost the strap.

LOOONG straps so I can Carry it like a messenger bag


Oh Schnap...what's this? It goes reversi?!?

And then I found this pin on the ground the other day, so now she has a new home. I think I like this side better anyway...

I did this late, so the sewing got a little sloppy at the end. That and I was also watching Wonder Showzen, so the attention was a bit averted. That and I am new at sewing, but I will stop the self depreciation.

Tell me what you think.

that pink fabric is my greatest find ever, I got it for fifty cents a yard at walmart, I ended up getting like 5 yards of it. No I didn't use a pattern. Really I just needed a camera bag for the next day because a friend of mine asked me to take pictures of his band durring a show. The sewing on it actually is pretty good, I am just learning a new sewing machine. I learned the straps are a little long, so I need to fix those. Other than that, just some strings here and there...

next is a skirt, I got a pattern on ebay for like pennies and a not to bad shipping price. I just made my duct tape dress form to use to. Rock.

I think, it looks a lot like the first bag I made(except mine was shades of blue).Keep trying, and be serious when u r sewing ( my same problems  Undecided) and you will get better results. I dont know it you had a pattern, what ur style is, or how long u have been sewing, but regardless be proud that u made something reconizable, cuz mystuff never is. Wink

I like the pink fabric a lot and the messenger/long strap idea is great for carrying a camera. Great job on this. It's fun to find a pin you like, too!!

You could just cut the strap and tie the ends like in the hobo bag tute or button the pieces together like in the skipping bag. Or you can take it off and shorten it that way. Either way, a super usable camera bag. Now to figure out more uses for the super pink fabric!! Smiley
