They are hot! I love the heart theme! Are you selling them, or are they for your own personal use? Thanks for the hobo-jordy link- I have just made my first ever little jordy, and would love to try something new-ish!

I love that first one. I love the fabric, whats it made of? And the heart makes it perfect.

Did you use the same measurements as in the tutorial? Or if you didn't how big is yours?

For the first bag, I used a red chenille-type upholstery fabric and it's lined with gold raw silk.
The second bag is made with fabric from one of my favorite vintage dresses.  It didn't fit me anymore and I loved the heart fabric so much that I had to do something with it.

I don't think that the dimensions are the same as in the jordy pattern.  I think that each side panel (on the hobo bag) on mine is about 15" wide.

Sometimes I bring my stuff into the office where I work and end up making a lot of sales.  This is my first real attempt at bags.  I usually do jewelry.  I brought these two bags into work today and people wanted me to start taking their orders!  Fun!

Any thoughts on what I could realistically sell them for?
