A couple of new bags, but not new styles for me.  One of these days I'll get around to trying a new design, but for now these are making me some $$$$$$!!!!

This messenger bag is made with a yummy nubby black decorator fabric for the main structure and a cotton black tone-on-tone for the accents.  Kind of corporate, but it was requested by my customer to hold her things for work.


Inside shot of the messenger with a hanging key ring holder and divided pockets along one side


My sister sent me this fabric (the paisley used to be a skirt) and she picked out a nice, bright blue polyester for the main body (yikes!  a little too matchy for me.....but she chose it!).  She requested a hobo design


Inside shot.  I originally wanted it to be reversible (hence the reverse pattern) but then I put a magnetic snap on and realized I blew my plan.  Oh well.


Thanks for looking!!!!!

They both look great! I personally am not a bright blue gal, but I do think the 2nd is very pretty!

If I still worked the first bag would def be it!
