The best bag(s) in the world

I have always wanted one of those japanese wrist bags and after an afternoon of non-work and browsing on craftster.org I came across some rather nifty links to bag tutorials. If you have not been to craftster you should go - there's a link in the list of blogs on the left. There are so many tutorials on how to make really cool stuff. I did quite a bit of printing that afternoon...

Anyway, the moment you have been waiting for..... (I'm suddenly feeling I may have hyped this up a bit too much)

I can not tell you how happy this bag makes me. I bought the fabric out of John Lewis's remnant bin about, literally, 6 years ago and have been waiting for the right project ever since. It is perfect for this. It is a really good size and feels highly natural just sitting on my arm. Yeeha for craftster!

Now this was on Friday night because you all know that I do not actually have a social life. At all. On saturday I set to with a second tutorial and the lovely fabric Pooch bought me. And this is it!

Isn't it a beauty?

That's a little pocket inside for my travelcard! Pooch is really really happy about this. I like it that he likes it too and I like using the fabric he bought me!

Wow, gorgeous bags. I love the shape of the first one. I tend to hang bags from my arm, so a bag that shape would be perfect. i think I might need to make a little visit to craftster :o)

I love those bags - I wish I wish I wish I could sew - I must teach myself there really is no excuse.

Oh I stole your Meme by the way - hope you don't mind.

Tid indeed a very nice japanesey bag you have there and the fabric that Pooch bought for the other one is spot on. Very nice work. Pity I hate sewing or I would be inspired to have a go myself.

Lovely bags indeed. Can you tell me where to find the tutorials? I've just bought my first sewing machine and would love to have a go at a bag or two. I've been to Crafster but was overwhelmed with the site - it has so much information!
