i made that one for my best friend who also chose the fabric at ikea.



vintage button closure



plain black lining (also ikea fabric)



and that one's for another friend from university who's a great elvis fan, as you might tell Wink. she's also into black and white, obviously.

These are so cute!  The craftsmanship is really impressive as well.  Do you use patterns or make the bags freehand?
