I am new to this site and there is so much to see! I would like to post some pictures of my work as well to join the fun.

A few months ago someone pointed out the (Belgian) blog of eloleo to me: http://eloleo.blogspot.com/
She makes bags herself and collects links to free on-line pattern, a real treasure!

She started the Kringloopproject (recycle project) and I immediately fell in love with the possibilities. She aims to make 210 bags herself this year and invites others to join to make a total of 2010 at the end of this year.

I have made 16 bags already and still going strong. These are some of my bags:

There are more pictures at my website, www.kloske.nl

I love your fabrics.

Thank you for the link, I don't speak Belgian but her tutes have so many pics they're easy to follow. I've been needing some new shopping totes I think I might give hers a try.

There is an option to translate on the left had side. I think it's about half way down.
