I've been making a bunch of stuff, and only tonight got around to taking pics to post.  So here, not in any particular order . . .

Corduroy bag with floral lining from the tinyhappy tutorial

Inside of bag with pockets (also need to finish the hole in the lining . . . forgot about that until I saw the pic!) Embarrassed

Another tinyhappy bag:


Okay - now here's a bag I'm really happy about - just finished it today:

front view with view of side

back view:

Inside - a zippered pocket!! (my first) and embroidered straps (took a lot longer and a lot more thread than I thought it would):

Inside the pocket is patchwork, too! Grin

Okay - that's enough pics for one post.  I'm really happy about the patchwork one, as I just kind of winged it, and I think it came out okay.  I think I'd either make the angled side panels come closer together on the next one, or put the straps on each end . . . or maybe a zippered gusset instead of magnetic snaps??  Hmmm . . . still trying to figure it out.

Thanks for looking!

Very nice!  The patchwork one is very cute, but I'm a sucker for paisley so I think that one is my favorite.  I do like how the pink piping looks on the edges of the patchwork one.  I have only tried using piping once and it was disastrous!

Thanks!  I really like piping - I've used it in a ton of things, and it puts a nice little touch to them, I think. Smiley

I really like the last bag, it's adorable! The handles are a little long for my taste, but they look very well done. Good job on all of them!

I love the embroidered straps - so all that thread really got put to good use - it's a beautiful bag.

Thanks, all!

Indigo Roses - Yeah, I think the straps are probably a bit long for this bag (though I like long straps in general) - if I place them in the same spot on my next one, I'll make them shorter!

GothChics - I got pretty much all the fabrics at JoAnnes as fat quarters - I love how you can mix and match them and come up with cool stuff!
