I've been making bags like crazy lately!
First, is a totoro cut-out handle bag. It doesn't hold much, just a wallet and keys. But I usually don't carry much more than that anyway.
I used a crayon transfer technique to make the totoro, then I just hand-stitched it on
My sakura bag, with tied straps:
This one's not very big either, I think it's about 10" wide x 7" tall
Funky post office tote. The outer fabric had some really cool stitching already on it, and I used blue polka dot fabric for the inside. The bag also has pockets on the outside for pens:
An action shot to see how it hangs. (Sorry it's not very close up, that was the only mirror in the house, and you have to stand kinda far to get a full view.)
And this last one I made especially to use for my nurse aid class. I love how the fabric on the strap alternates between the outer and inner fabrics. Oh, and it also has outside pockets for pens, lotion, and a notepad.
I know the pictures are kinda blurry. A photographer I am not.
