I find these bags young and because I couldn't wait to finish them, I was restless until I did.
Anyway, if you remember the bag I made for myself for school, the first following bag is the same design with different fabric. I was asked to bring some fabrics with me before school starts (fashion design) and design something with them, so I had some of this bag's fabric left. So I made a bag with it (it's from Ikea, that I went to day before because the store near my house is always closed  Angry, too bad for the owner who's losing a lot of money this way...) This is the first new bag, with adjustable strap and 2 pockets - one inside that closes with a magnetic snap. and an outer zipper pocket on front. Has a zipper closure on top:

And this is a bag I finished a few hours ago, with a romantic yet cool pink print. I used the same pattern, but had some features changed, like instead of one long adjustable strap, I made 2 handles with rings. Also, it closes with 2 magnetic snaps, that's another change:

Both were made this week, tell me what you think!

These are really cool!  Is the pink fabric also from Ikea?  I love it!

Very pretty!  I just finished some drawstring backpacks as teacher gifts, and two of them are in that black fabric from IKEA - I love it!!  I second the question about whether the pink fabric is also from there - I love their fabrics, and the closest IKEA to me is 3.5 hours away!   Cry

these are great bags - very professionally done!

Thank you, and no the pink fabric isn't from Ikea, it's from etsy. It's from a new collection and comes in different, yet not many, versions and colors. I bought 3 of them, they're all so pretty.
