Purses & Handbags

I really like purses and hand bags. Who doesn't. Although you would think that I don't because most days you will see me using a canvas bag or Bare Escentuals bag as my purse. I carry too much crap around with me on a day to day basis. I am a pack rat and I am cheap. I guess I think that I will get stranded and will need something even though there is a Walgreens on every corner. Here are two examples of bags I made. The tote bag I made at a class at Stitch Lounge. It is made out of cotton and is reversible. The other bag is a Amy Butler pattern. I had this idea of making a black bag with buttons, but it turned out bad and is ugly and I am going to re-do it. Tote bags are easy, but any other bags are really kind've hard. There are a lot of angles and interfacing's. I can see why bags these days are expensive, but at the same time I don't get why they are?


  1. So cute!I love the reversible one. I think I will steal the idea and make one too. Do you have a pattern? :)

  2. really cute!!! can you make me one??? i can barely sew on a loose button
