I finally figured out the photo up loader and this is my first post in this section. Bags are just about my favorite things to make and so I thought I'd share a few of my most loved totes here!

Here's a medium sized weekend number:

and the back:

It's a tweed upholstery fabric and bright OJ poplin lining. The buttons are fabric covered with the same oj lining.
Heres a weird bird's eye view of the lining:


This one is a smaller brown upholestery houndstooth with this crazy pink burlap. The burlap was a nightmare to work with (never gonna happen again!) and I had to add the button to fudge a weird gather that happened with the two fabrics. I actually kind of dig the button side more than the flower applique side!

(opps, looks like there's some thread to trim, this one's been around the block a few times)
flower side (there's a little beading going on i the middle of those blooms):

and for the inside pocket:

Thanks for taking a look, I hope you like them!

Cute!  I love the first bag; opening a purse and seeing that bright, happy orange would really perk up a bad day.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.
