Why yes, I have turned into the crazy bag lady

Iron Chef Vegan has been returning to old favourites - Get Sconed's Mac and Cheeze, Burritos, Vietnamese Spring Rolls.  I really haven't been doing much in the way of cooking because of the machine.
The sewing machine.
And so, I have turned into the crazy bag lady:
Kitty Bag
I bought this pattern before Christmas along with the fabric.  I loved the fabric so much I didn't want to fuck it up!  So I waited until I was sure that I could actually sew properly!
In the kitty bag
I'm really proud of this one!  It looks pretty damn good.
I really really REALLY love this fabric.
I love this fabric
Thus, I have embarked on a ridiculous quest to make a lot of handbags for friends and family.
Spotty Bag
This one's for my mum (hopefully she doesn't check this blog in the next hour!).

Vegan homemade handbags rock!

OMG! Kitty bag!!!!!!!! I want!!!! (and I hear you on the old favourites....I haven't been doing much in the way of inventive cooking lately either, but I don't have a new toy as an excuse :P!)

Whoa! I'm so impressed! The fabric is adorable and the inside of that bag looks so functional and user friendly. I am the kind of person who carries every single thing I can think of in my purse and I can never find anything in there! So those pockets would be quite helpful.

I love the kitty fabric, you have clearly tamed the dreaded sewing machine (I still can't drive mine!).
I hope your mum loved the bag >:o)

congratulations! the bags are great. i too have been tied to the machine (not literally, though sometimes when the threads get tangled...) making all manner of things. i made some great skirts on a whim the other day and am thirsting for more projects. keep it up, there's nothing more satisfying than finishing something and being completely happy with it.
