(this was x-posted to craftgrrl)

I was pretty bored in August, so I thought I'd make a bag for myself

It measures about 13x21 inches, so I can fit my whole life in there and still have room for other stuff Cheesy It's made of umm.. microfibre, I guess.

The back with a zippered pocket

Flap closure

The top has a zipper under the flap.

The insides are shiny yellow!

I also added a secret pocket in the side of the purse for my mp3 player!

I liked the first bag very much, but the colour is pretty bold, so I made another version with minor alterations in light grey.

This one has a pocket in the front and there's no little flappy thing attached to the big flap.

Top zipper.

The insides- toile lining and a little pocket for my mirror.

There's also this little carabiner thing inside, to which I can attach whatever thing I don't want to go missing in the huge bag.

Yet again, the secret pocket.

I love both of those bags.  I would certainly buy one if you sell them on etsy.  I would pay up to about $40 - $45 for a bag like that made of the microfiber material.  If you made one in red or navy blue, I'd be watching etsy for it so I could snag it! Smiley

Wow, you thought of everything!  I love big bags with secret pockets.  Your workmanship is really top quality - such perfect sewing and everything lines up perfectly.  You obviously put a lot into each item you sew.

Great job! I love that shape!  Not sure what to charge, I guess it depends on how long they took, but make sure not to sell yourself short!

Whoa! Those are both super gorgeous. I think the prices people have said so fair in the thread seem fair, $45 - 60 sounds right to me too!
