    I've loved seeing everyone's beautiful purses and totes! I tried this Phoebe Bag today: http://artsycraftybabe.typepad.com/t...phoebe_bag.pdf It was very easy, even for pattern-challenged me!

    I also made a tote last week from a kit I picked up at Jo-Ann's.

    And then today I receive a gorgeous bag made by our friend, youme in Japan. I'm going to be stylin' all summer long! I hope I don't have to buy too many outfits or shoes to match my new purses!

    Wow, wonderful bags, love the fabric in them. I made the charm tote, then made it with smaller blocks, so i have a matching purse and tote for my summer travels. Black and whites.

    Chele, you have a bag for every occasion now! I'm jealous. Yumi is very talented with those hand stitches on the front of bag.

    Love them. I'm glad to hear that you match your purse to your shoes too. My friends make fun of me when I say that. I just feel complete when I do.
    everyone says they are easy to make. I'm going to have to try one because these are really nice.

    Chele,
    You're in the club now. Did anyone mention that purse making is addictive??? I love your bags. They look great! Very fashionable indeed. One can always use another "useful" bag. Carry on. What's next?

    Chele - you and me both! All of a sudden I have this great interest in making purses. I bought Bow tucks pattern and can't wait to make it. But I have also bought two more patterns since and downloaded free ones! What has happened I never did have an interest in making purses! :mrgreen:
