Hi - this is my first completed projects post, so feel free to let rip with comments, criticism etc.

This is my first ever Jordy bag, I made it for my sister

Three Jordys later, and lots of tinkering with strap length and width and types of interfacing, I made these two bags, a jordy style messenger and an a-line jordy which is lined with a very colourful folk art style fabric.

and a few zippered pouches, just for the helluvit,

They're lined with the same fabric as I used on the embellishments.

So, what d'ya think?

I like the pink striped one the best.
But I also like the blue (second picture) very much.
They all are cute.  A good job for being your first completed projects!
You'll have to do more and post them as well.

My niece and I made reversible tote bags for her bridesmaids' favors.  We used raw silk and upholstery fabric in coordinating colors, and she had them professionally monogrammed.

I've got pictures, but I don't know how to attach them here.  It may be because I'm using Netscape rather than IE.

They turned out really well, though there was a scary moment the week before the wedding when the monogrammer did a beautiful job--upside down.   Cry  He thought they were chair covers (l guess he thought we had really little chairs!)

I really like using upholstery fabric for these bags.

They're all really lovely.
I especially like the decorative details you've included.

 Grin Thanks, Crazzee!

The button is made from the lining fabric. It's called a self-covered button, you get them from sewing shops, usually a few to a pack, and they are in two bits, you stretch the fabric over the front piece and then snap the back on... easy-peasy.
