Hi everyone,

I am constantly admiring other people's work on here! Love it all  Smiley

I thought I would post a couple of my own bags that I have made for this summer. One of them was a summer messenger bag out of some canvassy linen and cute cherry blossom fabric. My everyday bags must be big enough to hold a full container of Wet Wipes (being a toddler's mom).

The second bag is made with some gorgeous vintage fabric I scored at a thrift shop. Its green with gold metallic flowers. The fabric looks very classy to me, I had to make a fancy purse with it. Somehow a wet-wipes toting size just didn't seem right!  Grin
The lining is a dark denim.

Anyway, here they both are. Hope you enjoy them!

these are super cute! I love the flower fabric, and the shape of the second one. Did you use a pattern, or original design? Cheesy

Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.

Thank you  Smiley

No, I didn't use a pattern. Just a lot of thinking! The second one essentially is really just a big zipper pouch.

Oo! Love the linen on the first and how glitzy and glam the second bag is!

Both are awesome!

Love that vintage fabric.

The linen with that flower fabric looks just perfect.
