 I saw this fabric and HAD to have it. It just called to me. I loved the telephone poles and the entire feel of it. I ordered one yard of the main fabric and one yard of the coordinating red bricks. I was shocked at how much I was able to get out of it! Even with some fussing cutting.
 First, I made myself another Nottinghill bag SusieDDesigns. I love this bag. I made one for Halloween and just adore how it sits under my arm and fits everything (mainly my Kindle) perfectly. It has a large opening on the top so its easy to find things. Also, the sides expand a little so you dont have to feel like you stuffing it too full. The inside is a nice coordinating gray.



 Then with the remaining fabric I decided to make two of the Mini Lilac Messenger bags by BlueCalla. I got both of these made and I still have a bunch of fabric left. I could probably make another one. Like I said, that is with fussing cutting too!

 I like this pattern a lot. Its smaller but not too small.  Perfect for a day out when you dont want to lug around your 20 pound purse. It has a slip pocket on the inside and a cute little zippered pocket in the back. I used the focus fabric in the pocket but forgot to get a picture of that.

 The strap is adjustable for comfort. I chose different places on the fabric for the flap to give each a unique look. I raffled the telephone pole one away in the Nerd Games and I plan to offer up the street sign one in a shop for the Fall STS.

 Thanks for checking them out. I am still shocked at how much I was able to get out of two yards of fabric (minus the interior fabric but we all know that doesnt count. Tongue LOL! )

That is an excellent pairing of fabric, fussy cutting, and construction. Beautifully done!

I love the city feel of the fabrics.  A nice bag design as well.  The dictionary and thesaurus as props is a nice touch as well. Cool.
