Hi, I just wanted to share these 2 handbags I made.  One is in a Buzzy Bee print fabric.  This little guy is a New Zealand icon, just about every Kiwi  has had a Buzzy Bee pull along toy.  I matched it with bright red handles.  The inside is just plain yellow with a print pocket and a loop and ring for keys.  Just noticed I forgot to put the ring in the bee bag, but you can see it in the flower one.

   

The other bag is made from a floral upholstery sample with brushed drill for the handles.  The inside is a brown print cotton. 

   
 
Thanks for looking.   Smiley

Yes I am in NZ, I saw the swap, but I am about to drop, and I didn't want to commit to something I may not have been able to finish.  Will have to look out for the next one Smiley

Awesome. I love the bees. I tried making handles like that once but it was a total fail. Glad to see it can be done.
