First I know it seems that I like red, but actually it was what I had laying around
This first one is from a Simplicity pattern I only had light weight interfacing so it's not as stiff as I'd like it to be but the colors are great!
It has 2 outside pockets on each side, an inside zip and patch pockets and closes w/ a red zipper!
Next is a red cord/ velvet type tote bag, the other fabric is cut from a scarf it was a little on the slippery side! I made this for my mom who reluctantly has to use a wheel chair
It has 2 diff. straps one for regular shoulder use and snap on straps for the back of the wheel chair. The colors in person are very vibrant!
Here's a close up of the contrast/ liner fabric
And here's the inside no pockets to fumble with or get in the way!
the last is my first messenger bag. It's made from a black denim, lined in a red cotton print. This baby took a lot of planning- whew! I stitched a leaf detail on the outter flap in red thread! It has 2 side flap pockets, 2 big under flap pockets, a back zipper pocket, an inside zip pocket, and 2 inside on the side pockets- ha all that sounds a little funny
I must be tired! On w/ pictures

So tell me what you think, and happy crafting!
