I have recently become obsessed (I know that's a strong word, but it's true) with making bags of all shapes and sizes.  Every time I look at this forum I am both inspired and humbled...you all are amazing!

Here are a few of the first bags I made:

Sorry the photos are so boring! I think I'll be more creative next time. : )
Hope you like them. Any feedback is more than welcome and appreciated!

well, i would say there's nothing there to be very humble about. those are top drawer bags. i lovet he shape of them, and i totally dig the use of color blocks and ribbons- just enough ribbony things to make them look really fun and whimsical, but not too over bearing.

rock on.

I, too, think they are great! Wonderful work!

Those are great.  I especially love the fourth one!  The stripes go so well with the blue fabric.  Good job!

I am selling my crafty things to raise some money to go towards my adoption costs!

"i totally dig the use of color blocks and ribbons- just enough ribbony things to make them look really fun and whimsical, but not too over bearing."

The color block came from a bag that my friend's mom had made for her.  It was so simple and so cute and I just HAD to have one for myself! Now I have...well, more than one.  Grin  I have been trying to part with these (forced myself NOT to use them...well, a few of them!) but I'm still a little too attached.

How long have you been selling your bags, andreamarie? I just looked at your etsy site and they are so great!

I love the dragonfly ones, but they're all great.

The bags are lovely...especially the 5th bag (I love the dog-themed stuff!).  Nice job!

Those are great!  Are they really your first bags?  You have a wonderful eye for matching the fabrics, and the doggie ribbon is awesome!  Keep at it!

I like the doggy ribbon one--I can just imagine using it to carry my dog's toys and food when we travel with him.  I can't tell how big they are, but my dog might actually fit in one of those, too!

They're all cute, though.  I like the shape of them.
