here was my first:

this is my second attempt to my flip tote. I made this for my sister for her 21st birthday. It is made of wool pieces and cotton print fabric. The strap is brown leather and it has a snap closure. I loved how the wool was so thick..it made the bag very sturdy. It fits over the shoulder nicely so when she rides her bicycle to school she can wear it with ease. Smiley It was my first time quilting with my free motion foot and so it's not perfect, but maybe that's the look... haha

front- folded over

flipped open

back- flipped open

interior print w/ pocket

Thanks for looking!

I'm interested in personal swaps -- I love bracelets & necklaces and I don't know how to make them.

I agree; the fabrics are a perfect combination.  Somethime quilted bags can look too, well, country crafty if you know what I mean.  Very cool.

I really like the free motion stitching.......well done!

The bag looks great. If anything, I think the free-motion stitching looks better than anything deemed "perfect." I think the imperfections of hand-made items make them that much more special or interesting. Your sister is very lucky to get such a beautiful bag.

This is absolutely adorable and I LOVE the colors you used.

And hoping for an early death you swam so far you lost your breath, and struggling in the ebb and flow I took your hand, but you let go...
And now the ocean fills your lungs, and now you've got what you had come for, resting peaceful as you sink to drown under a sea of strangers.
