Hi all!

This will be the first time entering a challenge! No better place to start a challenge than the purses, bags, wallets board, my favourite! (I hope this is the right place to enter!?)

Okay on to the bag!
Not that this challenge isn't challenging enough, but I wanted to use only stuff of my stash. But there's plenty there, hahaha.

I had this cute, fun fabric with clothing 'patterns' all over. That says: I sew clothing!

A welt pocket on the outside. Just to show that I can sew a welt pocket Wink
The bag closes with a zipper and has two plastic, pink handles.

Other side of the bag:


Yes, that is a plastic pocket, I had a reason for that. I'll show you:


See?? That way I can show more of the stuff I make!! Like this felt badge. But cards, small purses, amigurumi, everything is possible  Cheesy
So this little see-through pocket says: makes felt badges!

For the lining I used red fabric with stirring rods. That says: bakes cakes!


I added a simple pocket, a hook for my keys and a my own label that says: made by Wendie.

And some in progress shots:







Few, that's it! I had fun making this bag, I hope you like it! I think it shows what I do besides sewing bags  Cheesy

Thanks for looking  Smiley

Wow, that is so cute, Wendie! I LOVE the fabrics you chose, and the plastic handles are great.  You did a wonderful job on that bag, what a great way to show off your talent to the world!
