Here's my March bag.  I started with a free Estee Lauder Gift with Purchase.  Then I bought a one pound bag of factory mill ends from the Spinrite factory outlet.  It had 12 odd sized balls in it for $2.99.  I used 2 balls of that to knit kind of a slip-cover for the bag and sewed it on around the bag opening.  I had a small piece left from a silk scarf that I previously had cut up to make a belt out of so I covered the small zippered pouch with that.  I think that's my favourite part of the project.  I really only paid for the 2 balls of yarn so this project only cost 50 cents.  If she needs a name, I'll call her "Estee with a new perm".  I entered this in the Nifty Thrifty Bag Challenge.
and a close-up of the zippered pouch.

You are so clever Margarita Miss.  Its a total bag makeover and it looks awesome a real improvement over the original.  Love the fabric you used on the pouch too.

hey meanbean those are nice, i love the darker burgundy one. I usually make a little beaded pull and add to my zipper pouches, it adds something. just a suggestion.

Thanks for the suggestion!  I wanted to do this, but these were all zippers I received as a donation (three gargantuan bags), and most of them are invisible zippers.  Because of this, the pulls don't have a loop on the end like a usual zipper, so I can't really adorn them.  I'm going to branch out soon and attempt to applique a little penguin I made onto a new pouch, we'll see how that goes! Smiley

I LOVE the cherry and fur bag!  That's so something I would carry   Grin

Thanks everyone for the props about the bag!  I loved making it. 

I wouldn't have thought of using fun fur as the lining either, except that my swap partner said she loved the combination of leopard print, red, and black together, and the only leopard print I could find was fun fur.  I made her pillows (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=85009.20) and tucked the fur away, thinking, "Now when am I ever going to use the rest of that fur?" 

I was going to make her a floofy skirt with tulle, but I only ordered a yard of the cherry fabric (must order 2 yards minimum from now on!), so when it arrived, I realized I couldn't make a skirt.  So I thought of a bag, and when I started thinking about what to line the bag with, the fun fur just sort of said "Here I am!"  Total serindipity.  Grin

I going to do a whole line of fun fur lined bags, because the effect is so cool.  The bag IRL is awesome.  The best part is how light it is, even though it's also very structured.

And I totally love the "sleeve" you knitted for the Estee Lauder handbag, Margarita Miss!  What a great idea!

My March bag is all done!!!  Cheesy
I volunteered to be swap angel and I'm waiting for her to receive the package before I post pictures. Hopefully, she'll get it before the end of March!  Wink

She got it yesterday!!!
The swap was called "A Buggy Swap", and one her favorite insect was moth.
So, this is the purse I made for her. I used a chartreuse green corduroy and a flowery print cotton fabric for the lining.

meanbean the green gingham one is so cute and springlike.  I checked out your etsy shop and I love the triangle purse!

THANKS!  I love it too - that was my first "orginal" design, as the rest of my purses are mostly basic at this point.  I'll be making more of those soon, I have them cut out, but I have no interfacing Sad  

Everyone's bags are so awesome - I'm SO glad I joined this CAL   Grin

And since groschveux just posted her moth bag - OMG that's gorgeous!  Your applique is so nice, I envy that Smiley

Eep!  I love that cordouroy bag!  I especially love the strap.  I am still working out strap design on my bags.  Does the cordouroy bag have a gusset?

Love it!
