Hi all you wonderful generous folks!! Thanks for all the inspiration and info I've gotton from these boards! Here are some pictures I want to share.

This as a little lined tote bag/purse - with both a shoulder length strap and two little side handles - I could easily flop either the big strap or the small ones into the bag to use the other strap without the others even showing (does that make sense?)

I did my first-ever inside zipper pocket
and you can see where I still need to handsew the lining where I turned it all. I used the jordy way (cutting small squares out of the bottom corners) to make the boxed bottom and I think its my new favorite method for bags.

I bought a box of scraps from equilter.com and 50 zippers from Zipperstop and now I'm a sewing fool with these neat pouches - and wallets...here are some of my recent ones:

The red hippo fabric is from IKEA - it might be too blurry to tell from my picture
Thank you for looking!

Wonderful job on everything! That hippo fabric is way cool. Your zipper pocket in the shark bag looks great, I am jealous because I just did one and yours looks so much better than mine. I also like the zipper tabs on the skull bag, they turned out fantastic!
