Here are some pics of the bags I've made recently.  I'm loving the idea of bags!  I have a few more that I want to accomplish.  There are so many great tutorials out there! 


This is a really cute handbag.  Here is the link to the pattern.  I used the bright pink fabric because it was all I had on hand, but I would probably prefer it in a more muted tone.  I think I may add interfacing next time too, to make it a little more sturdy.

I love the pleats!

The lining was soooo easy!  I love how professional and clean it makes it look!

Here is the makeup bag.  Here is the link.  I love how she includes batting in the middle, so that you can add a little visual appeal to the bag by quilting it as well as making it sturdy.  You could easily skip this step or put interfacing in between.

I was very proud of my zipper until I tried to zip it up and realized that I sewed the seams a little too close to the teeth.  Oh well, lesson learned.

And lastly, a cute little clutch.  Here is the link.  This is perfect if you want to take just the essentials to dinner.  It's hard to see the gathers in the picture, but they are very becoming.

Another zipper.  I did this one right, though!  Yay!  I'm still not perfect at zippers, but I think it will only take a few more tries. 

These were all easy tutorials to follow, so I feel confident recommending them to people.
