These were made to order for my aunt as Valentine's Day gifts for her grandchildren. I love these fabrics!

Skulls:


Gears:


And of course - the label! Smiley


Thanks for looking!

Your bags look like modern artwork!  I love how you use such colorful fabric inside--it is a nice surprise to the classic black and white outside!

I have had to line bags with muslin and interfacing to keep the lining showing through...it is a pain, but makes the bags so much nicer!  Good job on these!
Thanks so much for the nice comments! I am having a lot of fun with these bags - I got the fabric at IKEA ages ago and never made anything with it, so it is fun to have a use for it! Smiley

Hi all! I don't know what's up with the photo-sharing thing right now, but I wanted to post my latest two bags - I made these using the Slouch Bag pattern on YouCanMakeThis.com (http://www.youcanmakethis.com/products/the-slouch-bag). Great pattern!

Origami Animals:


And the inside:


And then Black and White Chrysanthemum:


Other side:


Ladybug inside:


And a Bee!:


These were so much fun to make - the only PITA was the fact that white fabric, even thicker white fabric with interfacing on it, tends to show the lining colors through to the outside - I had to add another layer of fabric in between the inside and outside so that it looked right!

Thanks for looking!  Grin

Very nice! At some point, I am going to have to make something Dr. Who related! Love the starry fabric on the inside!

I like your bags! I think more info on the embroidery part would be useful for those of us who are not skilled in that area, though . . .

Awesome!  Of course the first one is my favorite, b/c it looks like a ladybug!  Grin

Thanks! Still need to try a bee at some point . . . Wink

Still loving these!  Where do you get so many little zippers?  Do you get 7" and just cut them down?  I've never seen shorter ones.  For the fraying brocade (yum, brocade!), I'd fuse a very lightweight interfacing to the back.  But that might add too much bulk.  Try it and see.


Thanks! I get my zippers on Etsy - here's the shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/zipit?ref=profile_shopicon

They do have tiny zippers, I think down to 4", but I buy 7" and cut them down, because 7" is just more generally useful. It I really get going with these change purses, I may order a bunch of the smaller ones, but it's working for me to cut down the bigger ones for now.

And what I found works *is* the interfacing - it is great! Adds a little bulk, but not too much, and the fraying is no longer an issue! :

Thanks for the comments!

Now that I have figured out how to make things with brocade without it fraying to death on me, I LOVE the way it looks!

New ladybug




And new heart:


And, just for fun, a pic of all the various hearts I've been making lately!

Very cute! And I agree - a shorter apron with the dress sticking out would have been great. I like the way it came out, though! Great work!

Added a new ladybug - I'd appreciate thoughts on big spots vs small . . . .
