Hey again,

As I admitted in my post about the Bootie Bag, which you can see here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=300945.msg3435319#msg3435319 I haven't been posting many pics of completed items lately, so here's a few other projects I've completed...most have been done from tutorials I've found on the net, or purchased patterns...if there's any you're interested in trying out, please ask and I'll try and tell you where the pattern can be found.

First up we have some coin purses...the original pattern was for faux lined or not lined curved top purses, but as I've recently been playing around with quilting fabric for bags, thought I'd try it out on these cute coin purses (wish Australia sold as many varieties as the USA in pre-quilted fabric, sob sob), I've also made a smaller one, and they are in high demand, but haven't taken a pic of that yet...am waiting on my friends pass me down camera.



Next up we have what I consider to be my "Gay Pride" boxy bag....I love how unique this one looks....don't think I've personally seen any of these out there anywhere, till now!



Some of the girls at the adult campus I attend (where I do a sewing course) were all making these "Chenille Bags" and one of the ladies, thanks Cathy, told me what to do to make one....and I just went home and 'did it'.  I had the sun & moon fabric cut out ready to make a different bag, but when Cathy said how to make the Chenille bags, it just begged to be made up into one...gonna try making some other colour ones soon.



That's the outside of the bag, and the next pic is of the lining, showing the pockets...it also has a longish key fob that I put in (which is the bit you see poking over towards the right from my hand in the pic), so I didn't have to rummage around the bottom of my bag looking for keys...this way, I just grab the cord, and pull on it, and tah dah, the keys are at the end of it!



Now, anyone for tea?Huh  I saw a tutorial for tea wallets and thought they were great, then, as usual, I started thinking how I could make the pattern in a different way...so mine aren't quite the same as the originals....and instead of a loop and button, I put press studs on mine...wish I could find the nice white plastic ones, but can't locate them anywhere.  The 5 Sunflower ones at the front, were a custom order for my sewing teacher at school...she supplied the fabric for hers...and then still paid me to make them!  I've just made some with the matching business card holders, and am thinking about making complete sets, with coin purses, cell phone holders and glasses cases as well as 'womens things' holders as accessory sets.



All c&c greatly appreciated and welcomed

I love tea wallets! The "accessory set" with all the different little bags sounds like an AWESOME idea.

I've also made the tea wallets up as coffee wallets, with coffee bags in them too...they're great for those who don't like tea.
