Working Girl Laptop Bag

Here is another Working Girl Laptop Bag.  The pattern was designed by Anna of Charmed Liebling.   The bag looks sleepy...hummm.  It's leaning because I didn't "stuff" the bag before taking the pic.  I was in a hurry because I needed to get this bag in the mail.    
If you look closely at the above picture, it is a picture of the bag flap.  Instead of using piping, I used my ruffle foot to add thin ruffle around the edges. 
Here is a link to another Working Girl Laptop Bag I made.

Miss Miracle Bag

This is the Miss Miss Mabel bag pattern from Charmed Liebling.   Go to her blog to get info on where you can get this super cute bag pattern.
I love the retro style of this bag!  It's a very roomy bag, too.  
It has a zipper pocket on the bag back to keep keys, phone and or sunglasses handy.

Donna Bag

This is the Donna Bag.  The pattern is from Swoon Patterns.  It is the first pattern in the Vintage Subscription.  If you don't want to buy in to the entire subscription, you are able to purchase the patterns individually.  However, the subscription is a GREAT DEAL!!!  The Julie Bag was the second pattern released in this subscription. 

I added the zippered pocket on the back.  But followed the pattern for everything else.  There is a great slip pocket on the front and a zippered pocket inside as well as a zippered closure. 
This bag is such a cutie!  It is a smaller sized handbag....but not too small.  The handles, as made in the bag pictured, will not fit over a shoulder.  They are for holding by hand or over the arm only.  A longer strap could easily be added, if needed.

Julie Bag

Wow!  I have neglected my blog!  Yes, I guess I did fall off the face of the earth for a while.  YIKES!  I really haven't been able to sew or do any sort of crafts for awhile.  That does not make me a happy person.
Anyway, this bag is made with a new pattern from the fantastic Swoon Patterns!  This is the second bag from the Vintage Pattern Subscription.  Called the Julie Bag.  So, far I love these vintage bag patterns!  I just realized that I haven't posted the bag I made from the first pattern in the subscription.  I love that bag, too!

I made a few very slight changes...I added a magnetic snap closure and I glued in a piece of Pellon 70 to the bottom to help the bag keep its shape. 
Oh, ya I added the bow, too.  I'm still not certain on the's removable.
I'm in love with the shape of this bag.  So cute!  
The pattern was easy to follow and went together quickly.  The only part that gave me trouble were the handles.  Mine didn't want to cooperate.  One just flat out refused to play nice, but I forced it to work in the end.  ;)
