First I know it seems that I like red, but actually it was what I had laying around  Smiley This first one is from a Simplicity pattern I only had light weight interfacing so it's not as stiff as I'd like it to be but the colors are great!

It has 2 outside pockets on each side, an inside zip and patch pockets and closes w/ a red zipper!

Inside shot

Next is a red cord/ velvet type tote bag, the other fabric is cut from a scarf it was a little on the slippery side! I made this for my mom who reluctantly has to use a wheel chair  Sad It has 2 diff. straps one for regular shoulder use and snap on straps for the back of the wheel chair. The colors in person are very vibrant!

Here's a close up of the contrast/ liner fabric

And here's the inside no pockets to fumble with or get in the way!

the last is my first messenger bag. It's made from a black denim, lined in a red cotton print. This baby took a lot of planning- whew! I stitched a leaf detail on the outter flap in red thread! It has 2 side flap pockets, 2 big under flap pockets, a back zipper pocket, an inside zip pocket, and 2 inside on the side pockets- ha all that sounds a little funny  Cheesy I must be tired! On w/ pictures

And lastly inside shot

So tell me what you think, and happy crafting!

They are all very nice, especially the messenger. I like the full zipper pocket and the smaller ones. Good job.

They're all cute, but I'm partial to the messenger bag.  I really like the stitching on the flap!  Great job!  Smiley

Thanks runnermom! It's one of the stitches available on my mom's old singer machine. I'm thinking of making another messenger bag but smaller more purse size- sometime  Smiley
