Those look great.  The "large brown bag" is my favorite - I love the detail on the button.

Your hand-stitched button hole is really a nice touch!!  Good job!

BTW, is the blue one made of terry cloth?? Huh

the blue is not terry cloth... it is actually knitted out of wool and then felted. it looks kind of floppy since it is empty, but i think i might end up using it for a yarn tote... it was to be gifted, but i think the recipient will enjoy something sewn instead of knitted....
and thank you for noticing the buttonhole- i thought it was nice, too  Cheesy
