Whoa!  First post - hope you likey.
 
I've been creating these groovy 12"x12" patchwork bags for a week or two, thinking that I might sell them at a local wearable arts fair... Are they cool enough to buy for $20 or so? I sewed them with the intent of *not* matching the patchwork ('cause I like it that way) and then I made them reversable to a plain side for those days when one is not feeling as bohemian as one ought to be.  I also made the strap adjustable by attaching a 3" loop to one side of the bag and a 45" strap to the other side... just tie it up, baby!  Cross it over your chest, wear it long or wear it short... whatever.
Any thoughts?  Thanks for looking!

BTW - These are *really* Simple to make- and are totally great for using up all your goofy scraps - especially if you have a piece of fabric that you LOVE but don't have too much of.... TUT anyone?

Absolutely beautiful bags...simple but so effective!  You definitely have an eye for putting the fabrics together.  If you do a tute I would love to see it!

Delibrately 'unmatching' is the definitely my style in patchwork-anything! Great job on the bags. Wink

Very nice!  And what a great idea for the adjustable strap!  What is the closure..zip, snap?  ANd heck yes, bring the tute on!  Thanks!  Oh, and $20 bucks is cheap...how long does it take you to make one?
