I've been sewing a lot these few weeks because its the holidays for me SmileySmiley Cheesy Grin

2 pouches made of japanese cotton, I love Japanese prints!!

the polkadotted lining

the lining of this is navy and white polkadots too. You can see the zip doesn't end at the end, that's because I bought the wrong length, and I didn't want to wait another day to sew it, so there's a small gap there.. but its ok i guess, its not that noticeable except in the picture.

a drawstring pouch. I fused interfacing at the base for it to be able to stand up and for more shape.

Black Tote. I love the lining, its cinderella inspired cotton from Japan. It was kind of plain on the outside, so I added a huge button.
I initially wanted the cinderella cotton to be on the outside, but it was kind of thin, and I didn't want to use interfacing to make it all hard and stiff, but it turned out quite nice this way too. Smiley

I also made a reversible tote, checks on one side, and a printed cotton (Japanese again, haha) on the other. It's not that shiny; I couldn't catch the real colour. It looks waaay nicer in real life.
This is my favourite one of the lot. Cheesy

I also did a few matching purses and totes. There're all reversible, except for the purses of course Smiley
The blue patch is actually a pocket, and I did machine embroidery on the purse for more detail.

This is a plainer and slightly smaller one. The inside is the same for the top one too.

I didn't do inner pockets for any of these cos... I was lazy... haha

I totally dig the lining on the black tote - Do you remember where it's from or what it's called?

wow, these are all so beautiful. I especially love the Japanese fabric. and the short zipper on the bunny on isn't noticable at ALL! I only noticed when you pointed it out

Great job on all. I really like the shape of your drawstring bag. It's very unique. Excellent fabric choices on all.
