livi1 - That pink stitching is an awesome touch to that bag - it really makes the detail of the bow pop!

Kookaloo star - that is a neat pattern - I have been using clothing alot lately in my bagmaking - I may need to try that one too!

PM me for personal swaps! Longing for a "Muffin Man" type poppet for
my son.

liliv-1  That is a fabulous purse.  Love the bow and the stitching.  I am always afraid to use a contrast thread but looking at how much it can add, I might have to give it a try.  What pattern did you use? 
I didn't use a pattern, it's a very simple bag (except of the bow and the time consuming handstiching) ... just two trapezoids in the desired size, which I modified during sewing to achieve a more rectangular shape. The bow is a  rectangle which was put in a way shown at a previous post of this thread...If you want further explanations just ask me ... I'm very glad you liked it.

thanks for your comments!
Sad(( the stiching is not pink, it's very deep red, the photos are not good!

Love the detailed bow on your bag, liliv-1!  It is so nicely made...

K-star--thanks for that link to the tutorial...I actually think I own that orange and coral jacket shirt Cheesy  It would be better as a purse... Cheesy

The doggie purses are so intriguing...

I finished the orange one, I corrected the problem with some lace and put a bow instead of flower:

lilliv-1 Two pretty bags! I especially love the dark bag with the red stitching, very lovely!!

Kookie thanks for the link, bookmarked it for future use of all those nice, not worn shirts we have laying around  Smiley

Love those colors!  These are so pretty and you do such nice work that I think I may need to eventually trade in my paper plates and get myself a real thread catcher!
