A few things I've made recently:  Little purse made from placemat with gecko embroidered on it for a friend who has a thing for geckos; zippered pouches made from tutorials here (THANK YOU!) and a tote lined with pink ribbon fabric ( the pouch is lined with it also).  I've made 3 of these tote bags for women who are having treatment for breast cancer and I think they turn out nicely and have been well received.  Thanks for looking!

Very nice work.  I've seen that type of handle on a zippered pouch before (in the gift shop at the National Gallery in Washington) and I thought it was a really good idea.  Thanks for showing it here.

Love the gecko!  Did you do that on your own, or do you have an embroidery machine with a pattern?  It looks great!

I just realized that I never responded regarding my posts - sorry, hope no one was hanging on my response!
I used my embroidery machine for the gecko- I 'm not sure I could even do a simple pattern by hand!  And the tutorial for the zippered pouch is now here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=22875.0 (sorry I don't know how to make this a link).
Anyway, I hope if anyone was still interested this will answer your questions!
