I've been very busy, and somewhat bored.  My Mother-in-law wanted me to make her 8 identical bags for a Tuscan themed luncheon she's co-hosting.  She's going to put some goodies in them, and give them to each lady at her table.



The outside is a slightly shiny olive stripe, and the inside is a light lemon yellow linen.  Gotta love the Jordy bag!!!

A closeup of the fabric:



Like I said, very busy, but how many times can you do the same thing over and over?  I need something not stripey to look at!

They look cool all piled up on the chair! They look small, what are the dimensions of the bags?

They're about 6 inches square, not counting the handles.  Yeah, I kinda didn't want to give them to her, I liked my "sculpture".

Not only did you do a great job on the outside of the bags, but the inside pocket and lining are also great. They look very professional and I am sure she was so pleased! I would want to keep them too. Smiley

I have paint all over my fingers and fabric all over the floor. Yeah it was a good day!

Thanks!  She kept saying over and over, "They don't look homemade!"  Hello, that the point!   Grin  I prefer the term customizable.
Personally I think they're kinda plain on the outside, but she didn't want anything on the front.  Of course, I may have a slight addiction to cute buttons so I could be biased.

Nice DIL!
I know what you mean about sewing the same thing over and over, I once had to make 28 black skirts for my daughters choir club. To this day the sight of a black pencil skirt makes me wanna scream.

Aahh, band concert flashbacks!!!  I can't look at black pencils skirts either, but for other reasons.
I think if I had to make 28 of those purses, I may have had to take a "vacation" in a nice padded room.  Wink
