  29. Amy Blencowe says:

    I have made 1 bag for my kindle. I loved picking out the fabrics! It was loads of fun, but I am intimidated at the thought of making my own purse (even though it takes me months to find a purse that is acceptable…).

  30. Karen Bledsoe says:

    I have made bags for many years.., mostly gift and tote bags without hardware as I find the cost ghastly. Working on a purse now, well, not right now. It has been sitting for a couple of weeks because I was a bit overwhelmed. I will be getting back to it in the near future, I’m sure….

    I’ve gotten a lot of compliments!

    I’ll be making another one soon…but I am thinking the fabric I bought for it might end up a backpack for my toddler…

  39. Cathy M says:

    Yes! I made grocery totes from advertising banner fabric. They are fun and a little more fun to carry. I have made several purses, wallets, cosmetic bags and checkbook covers. Always a good present

  40. Andrea says:

    I haven’t completed any yet, but I have a bunch of fabric purchased for them! ;-)

  41. Hope Crawford says:

    My favorite thing to make would be purses. Sometimes I teach purse classes. The best part about teaching is that I always learn something myself. I love new patterns and often stumble upon new ways to do even simple tasks. Now, got to go sew. bye

  42. Sylvia Johnson says:

    I have made several totes this year. One for my little chihuahua’s supplies. She goes everywhere with me. Another is for my library books. I check out so many books I need something to carry them in. I have another tote made from recycled blue jeans for overnite trips.
