Wow, oh so pretty, wonderful rich fall colors.  Cranberries are a favorite food and their rich red color accenting the bag is lovely.

greengirlak, the squirrel bag is fabulous!  Did you design the squirrel yourself or was it a pattern?

Thanks andreamarie...don't tell anyone but I "googled" the word squirrel and then stole a picture off the Internet.  Then, using my handy transfer paper, I traced the pilfered rodent and wha-la!---Squirrel goodness.

Yay!  I received humblestumble's BEAUTIFUL bag yesterday (or was it today?  Sorry all my days are a blur lately)  Anyway, it is so gorgeous and unlike anything I have which makes it absolutely perfect!  I will try to get pictures posted tomorrow. 

Thank you SO MUCH humblestumble  I LOVE IT, and now must coordinate some outfits around it.    Wink   I do this everytime I get a new bag.  I'm such a geek!  Grin

Aw! I'm soooo soo glad you love it! My cats like to lay on everything I crochet or knit, so I had to really work at getting the cat hair off lol, I didn't let them lay on it for long, but it was bugging me that hairs were even noticeable. Shouldn't be noticeable now though - I went crazy for every speck!

I handsewed the fabric along the mouth, so the bottom is easily pulled up-able and cleanable, I'd only handwash it though. Also because I hand stitched the lining on, and I forgot if that yarn bleeds. I dont think it does, ... I hate loosing labels! I loved that yarn and it was just sitting around and I hadn't started your bag yet... I got the fabric last minute and it only cost 66 cents! I was so glad! I still have some left over Smiley And the flower was on sale Smiley You're a spoiled one, you are Wink (the flower would originally sell for like 8 bucks a peice. I believe it's suede fabric.)

Sorry for spoiling everyone on the outcome! I was really happy with the way it turned out! At first I was like "eh, I dont even know if she'll like this ... it looks like crap" and after I had all the fabric on and stuff, I thought it looked pretty good Smiley - I surprised myself!

I'm ssooo glad you liked it! You deserved it! I'd been wanting a messenger bag forever, and now I carry it with me everywhere! It's like a security blanket. I have all my knitting stuff in there (my light projects - socks, and other stuff)

I think it's cool that you coordinate your clothes to ur bags - I noticed you've been in like nothing but bag swaps! Wink I was hoping you didn't have anything like it!

I am fairly certain that Fancy got my package a week ago so I will just post pics of the bag I sent her.   


this is the tote from far away.  I took 2 layers of tulle and sandwiched a grid of fun yarn and and threw in some other fibers for prettiness. Smiley  I also quilted in some fall leaves with a gold thread.  I had SO much fun thinking up things to do.  The bag is also reversible, it has some shiny fabric on the inside, but I liked the leaves better.

Oh jainy that is awesome!  Wonderful creative work.  You are incredible! 

Would you be horribly offended by copyests?  You work not only looks beautiful, but like lots of fun to create.

-------------

As far as I know both knittinggoddess and I are impatiently awaiting the across the border transfer of goods.  She sent early, it has been 12 days in route so far, the bag I sent north has been traveling 9 days, perhaps they waived in passing at some point.  Each day I think "tomorrow it will arrive."  well one day tomorrow will get here.
