These are made from the pattern from Amy Karol's book Bend the Rules Sewing (Great book by the way, super cute patterns).

This was my first one made from a stretch cotton retro-y flower prin lined with brown corduroy with green polka dots.


The lining:


A close up of the handle casing, it cinches a little when you pick it up; a pseudo closure:




I made this one for my mom out of black Monster cordroy (look at the wales!) with an Olivia the pig lining:


The pocket with space for a cell phone and a pen/pencil:


And a close up of the Olivia lining:



I love this pattern and plan to make a bunch more Cheesy

Thanks so much, I really like the handles on the first bag too, If i could change something (which I can if I feel like) it would be the handles on bag 2, they're too hefty for my taste. But my mom likes it, so I guess it stays the same.

Cute bags! I like the fabrics you used for the flower one, especially the polka dot corduroy. The piggy fabric is awesome too.

These are really pretty.  I love the contrasts of the fabrics -- not just the colors contrast, but also the styles and textures.  The dots go great with the flowers, and the little Olivias make what is otherwise a very dramatic combination -- black and red -- somewhat whimsical.  Cheesy

The pockets on your mom's bag are great, and I love the closures, too.

Very, very nice bags.
