a group of friends threw a beautiful baby shower for me a few weeks back and i really didn't know how to thank them. i thought...a card definitely isn't enough, so i decided to make something for each of them.

this is my first attempt at using the loop/hook clasp and it makes the bags look a lot more professional! i'm going to have to buy more. they are just simple zipper pouches, but i added cotton quilt batting to each so they hold their shape a lot better. the lining on each one matches the fabric of the handles. 

they were fun to make and i'm really pleased with how they turned out. i'll be giving them off today! i hope the girls find some good use for them. Smiley


i found felt letters at joann and purchased each of their first initials to "finish" and personalize each purse.












here they are all together!

thanks for looking. Smiley

How did you do your little tag with your initials?  I need to come up with something to put my name on things that I make...

cknaus65: thank you! i've had the fabrics in my stash for so long..it was nice to put them to good use!

Mocosa: thanks!

genislaughter: they are felt circles that i free-motion stitch my initials on. i wanted to get professional tags made for a long time...but realized, why waste the money? they just look more handmade this way, anyway. Smiley

hotfudge: thank you! i was hoping it was one up from just a thank you card.

Atouria: i actually just made them myself. i purchased 9" zippers and just approximated the size and went at it! that's usually how i sew. it's very random, but i end up having a lot more fun doing it that way. Smiley

madfishmonger: yea i really like the look of the hook/clasp. they were really easy to work with too! which is always a plus.

Doodleabby: the zippers weren't bad at all!! especially when it's such a simple design. i finished all five yesterday afternoon. cnce i got a nice rhythm down i was able in finish them pretty quickly. it was sad to split them up and wrap them because i felt so accomplished after seeing them all in a row! haha
