great job! I like to do things with several at one  time as well. I usually will choose fabrics that work with the one colour thread for most things then do the finishing details with an appropriate colour.

they are brilliant fabrics - well done!  I have a question though.  They look a bit soft, not stiffened with heavy interfacing.  What have you put inside them?  Is it Pellon (a soft thin wadding thing) or something similar? 

Great job anyway!  Smiley

Thanks again for the great response all of you!

For the price: maybe you're right, also other people said to me I charged too low...that's why I've not considered the VALUE of the item and did only a calculus for the costs and hours of work...I'm still learning, it's not so long that I've started selling my things so I think I'll have to adjust a few things Smiley

Thanks for the suggestion about making a bag reversible! I'll try that, maybe changing a couple of things since I don't feel comfortable ironing the upper pleat (to topsitch) when the bag is sewed yet, I fear to make a crooked line or something...

I chose not to use interfacing cause I didn't want the bags to be stiff but "poseable" and with a comfort style. I prefer soft bags to "rigid" ones.

ciao!
