    Default Anyone make their own bags?

    Hi, I'm new here and was wondering whether anyone else made their own bags?

    There are plenty of threads about where to buy the latest bag from well known designers, but I haven't seen much chat about making bags, where to source fabrics, etc.

    Come on - make yourself known. If there's enough interest it might be worth a whole new forum section.

    If I could I would...it would probably be cheaper in the long run if I could make my own handbags. But I just don't have the talent to do it. Me and sewing machines do not mix. I would probably end up sewing my fingers or something bad like that. I really wish that I could make my own.

    Done...I think...Until I find something that catches my eye

    Sewing is bad... I can't really sew all that well. Mr BRS has lots of shirts with buttons missing from them.

    Well, I've always said that if he wants buttons sewn back on his shirts he had better do it himself! LOL!

    I've seen some really amazing and original bags made by ordinary girls. If those had a "prada" sticker on them, they would be worth thousands.

    Don't you mean if they had a prada sticker on them they would be fake?

    ROFLMAO, I just tried to envision myself making my own bags and my vision did not look good! I can't sew for the life of me!

    Maybe she means the quality is so exceptional they should be worth a fortune?

    And no, I don't make my own bags, In a past life I had a children's clothing company and we had diaper bags in the collection, but not now.
    With the market being what it is, people won't pay what they should for handmade bags. I love going onto Etsy.com and buying what I can - helping out the talent there. But at the end of the day, the big designers will always win out in sales and pricing.

    I don't generally like fabric bags, except for a few exceptions...
