Like shoes one can never have too many bags!

I have been very impressed to see all the talented sewists here and the lovely bags. So very inspiring. Years ago while living in Lakeland, FL I attended a class by Linda McGhee and from that I started making numerous purses for friends, family and for a consignment shop. I stopped making purses for about five years, why I don't know.

But I am getting back into the swing of it, so here are few photos of those I have made over the past year.

The left one is wool felt in black drafting using directions from one of several Purse Books I have in my sewing library. The second photo, not very good one sorry, is the Ghee Hobo I embroidered designs from A Bit of Stitch plus added decorative stitches using my D1. The right photo is the Loes Hinses Butterfly Bag. This is a tapestry fabric I purchased online.

Thanks for allowing me to share. I am currently working on another purse using a McCall's pattern. This one is from wool cashmere left over from a jacket project. I used the Babylock Embellisher to felt/needle punch roving and other fabrics on it. When complete I will post photo.

Your butterfly bag is gorgeous. It looks large but also lightweight with a full bottom. Lovely fabric and handles.
