it was my first time making bags for all four, so i didn't want to use any of my really nice fabric.  i haven't thought about what to wear with them...luckily i do wear alot of black!  i guess they are the sort of bags that are the focus of an outfit rather than an accessory.
matching is for fuifuis.

I especially like the first one. Great choice of fabrics, btw. You have done 3 fairly difficult bags out of reused material, which is not all that easy, and they came out well. Great idea using the belt and I love the big button on the first one. That pillowcase one could really shine with the right decoration. Good work on all your bags and keep making them.

thank you!
i really like using recycled material because it picks itself out...i just find patterns and fabrics that I like and they all end up fitting together.

Hey!  I think they are cute and fun.  My favorite is the first one, I love wide clutches.  I make purses out of recycled materials too, its so fun!

I wouldn't worry about the above comments, everyone is hard on the things they make themselves.  I often worry things I make aren't that cool Wink
