This is my most recent bag, my friend held a Pink Party to raise money for Breast Cancer Research last week so I made this shoulder bag and a matching coin purse for her to raffle. It's a nice canvassy type fabric and I used a stiffer interfacing than usual so stands up nicely. Has my new tag on the shoulder strap!
This is one of the first bags I made which I use aaaall the time as it's nice and spacey. It's a canvassy thickness fish fabric which I totally wish I could get more of, with a nice blue lining for the fishies to swim in. In hindsight the shoulder strap is too thick and the pockets have started to unstitch as I didn't make them strong enough but hopefully I'm learning from experience!
Three of my favourite small totes, the swirly one is canvassy material with a lilac lining that I gave to my pal Jo for her 30th bday, the circles one is also canvassy with a lemon lining that my pal Anilla picked out for her 30th bday pressie, and the beige/cream bag is made from faux suede with the most gorgeous red flowery lining which I luuuurve!!
Man this post is getting a bit long :S This is a bag my friend Kerry ordered, she loooves cows so this comic cow fabric I found was perfect, has a nice ginghamy lining and a grassy coloured green button fastening (my first button hole!). Made her a matching coin purse more recently. She tells me she uses it almost every day so I'm well happy.
One of my first bags, tried a slightly different shoulder bag style with reinforced base, super giant ladybird type material and blue lining. Gave it to my MIL for her 50th, and gave her a nice ladybird button to attach to it that I got for that purpose but never got round to doing anything with!
Don't worry, nearly at the end...
A couple of the lil pouches I made for my Treo mobile phone as I got it when it was first out and there was no cases available for it over here so improvised! Uses nice thick long fleece lining to protect and keep clean.
And the last one for today, phew...
My gym doesn't allow bags on the floor so I needed a lil pouch to take in the essentials like lipsalve/earphones/glucose tablets etc that could hang from the equipment. Made like a clutch with a thicker base, lil pocket inside, zip fastening and a velcro strap nice and big to attach to all the machines.
Thanx for reading, be gentle!!!
