Handmade tote bags, my new obsession.

I have FINALLY delved into the world of sewing and I LOVE it! I learned how to make this bag in a class I took in Brooklyn (I'll be writing a review for them soon). It's an altered See & Sew pattern (#B4271 found here) The only two pieces used were 2 and 3. It's technically reversible but the interfacing is fused to the outside fabric only and I like the stiffer fabric on the outside better, so I don't really like to reverse it for use. 

I found this leopard print fabric in Manhattan and have run out! I need to go back this week to get more bc it is just too fab. This bag shown is my little sisters. 

This one is also my little sisters bag, its a houndstooth print (from Mood Fabrics) and a Paisley fabric found at another Manhattan Fabric store....I forgot their name but will find out and share! The Middle part needs some ironing.

Made this one for my mom. The fabric for this bag is from Joann's.
