I love both too!! The fabric is so cool!!! I am new at making purses but I will like to know if somebody can explain me or tell where can I find how to do that nice pipes...I really don't know how to do that or how to sew it..

the following is not the best explanation...especially for someone who has never done this...but i thought it might be useful to others, too. i learned how to make and sew piping onto bags when i took a class to make a particular bag that had piping. i apologize if this makes no sense!!

you can buy piping or you can make it. if you are going to buy it, try looking in the are of craft store where they display binding and zippers and thread. if you are going to make it, you need to buy cording (it comes by the yard from the ribbon area of your craft store and there are various thicknesses) and you need to have fabric to cover the cording. you will want to bias cut your fabric...bias means cutting on the diagonal, or 45 degree angle. the reason you do this is because the fabric is stretchiest on the bias and if you want to go around corners, it is  easier to manipulate it so you don't have puckers or anything like that. cut your bias strips so that they are about 1/2" bigger on each side of your cording. (so, if you have 1/4" cording, cut your bias strips about 1 1/4" wide._ wrap your bias strips around the cording and use your zipper foot to get as close to the cording as possible and sew. you will have cording wrapped in bias binding, your seam will be super close to that cording, and about 1/2" of fabric sticking out from that seam. baste the extra fabric to one side of your bag, pin the other side to the side that you just basted your piping onto (wrong sides together), use your zipper foot to get as close as possible when sewing the layers together.

Love, love, love the fabric!!  The wallet has a great set-up, I am looking for something along those lines.
I know what you mean about quilt store fabrics Smiley  Sometimes it can make for spendy bags, but it is usually worth it as they tend to hold up better. Though I tend to check the clearance section to try and save a bit, unless I find a fabric I just can't do without. Smiley

Great job.
