I have been sewing different kinds of bags for quite some time now, but only just joined craftster - so I thought to introduce myself I could just show some of my favourite bags I've made so far. Cheesy

This is a simple tote bag made from one of my favourite really bright fabrics:


This is another tote bag made from a really nice green corduroy, featuring an apple application:


My favourite little purse:


This bag took me forever, it is made from recycled sail and of course my own design


My favourite small shoulder or messenger bag:


And just yesterday I have sewn my very first knitting needle roll!


Well, now you know a little bit more about me and my kind of style, and I'll just hope that these pictures will show up! Smiley

Thanks for all the nice feedback!

Mebsmommy, thanks, picking out the combos is my absolute favourite part!

Tree27, yes I have designed and embroidered the apple as well, it is also stuffed with some filling material to make it stand out more. That bag also features a vintage wooden button which is really sweet...

Radioactive, glad you could see the totes now as well Cheesy Temptation is one of my favourites too, that's why I kept it. Smiley
I wear it pretty much everywhere now...

Meronym, cord is one of my most used materials, it is just so practical and hard wearing as well as soft Perfect!

Haha, Miffy, you found that fabric as well! When I first saw it I absolutely had to have it, it's so bright and fun! It's still one of my favourites... Cheesy Yours is a nice tote too!
