One of my favorite things to sew are bags and purses. Here are a few I have made within the last year.
My sister Natalie found a bag she loved that had a huge flower on it but she didn't want to pay $45 for it. So I made this one for her. Although it wasn't the same as the one she saw, this one turned out pretty cute. I used less than one yard of this brown vinyl fabric, which cost about $8.

 This blue bag costs me about $2 to make. The blue canvas fabric was $5 bolt fabric at Walmart and I only used one yard. The strap is actually a canvas type belt that I cut.

If you haven't noticed by now, I love ruffles! I had fun making this bag at my sister Amy's 30th surprise birthday/craft party. I hope my 30th birthday is as fun:)
I love buttons! The bigger the better!
