Bag Envy

Every other season I find myself in “need” of a new bag – my family thinks I have plenty, but it never stops me!  I love sewing up a new bag for myself, and I’ve been trolling for inspiration.


I’m hoping to draft a pattern soon – I’m looking forward to spring, and a new bag too!

    We ALWAYS need a new bag. I’m not much of a shoe person, but bags, oh my. I don’t have as many as I want, but am always on the lookout for another one. Still haven’t found THE one yet, it remains elusive. It’s fun trying out new ones though. :)

    You have some wonderful inspiration there – I’d never be able to decide which one to make :)

    Love your inspiration bags….I’m always dreaming up new bags and totes! I stunned my hubby when he wanted to gift me a new bag for Christmas, and I walked away from the browns and blacks and chose a gorgeous soft red leather bag! LOL

    There is no better way to start a new season than with a new bag. I’m forever in search of the “perfect bag”.

    I just love bags. I make them so often that I give them away just so that they get used!

    I was just looking through some of the bags I have pinned and thinking I needed to make one of them for myself :)

    Um, you can never have too many bags, says a fellow bag lady.

    I have been thinking that I need a new one, too. I have been using the same bag during the winter for the last two years, so it must be time for a new one!

    I’ve been wanting a new bag too! I actually like a couple of the ones you pinned last night! I’m working on some ideas right now.

    I have been sewing and designing my own purses for nearly a year now. I love purses and can make my own to have just the right pockets (in # and size) and color and what I like.I so excited when I see a new pattern to alter or an idea I see in photos of bags for sale. I really like picking up remnants of upholstery fabric to use. They can be quite affordable.
