This is the last one I've made.

This bag , as all my bags, is made from original 70's fabric, decorated with vintage ribbon and closes with a vintage button.


Ella since Osix - All my bags & accesories are made from or restyled with original vintage fanrics and materials.
Every piece is made with pride.

From the outside.

The inside, with a large pocket, divided into 3 sections, so I can find everything.

Title: Macrame bag
Materials: jute, fabric, metal rings (wrapped in jute), buttons
(The bag is macrame with a reversible lining, I have many colors, but this one is hot pink and blue)

(Sorry about the finger in the corner)

Why are you trying to fit in,
When you're born to stand out!

Bag Title: Spring Stripes
Materials used: Printed Cotton, flexible Interfacing and zippers

This bag was an experiment using a more flexible interfacing (I normally use rigid so my bag will stand up straight).

Bag Front:

Bag Back

Bag Lining

There is a zipper enclosure at the top of the bag and another zippered pocket in the lining of the bag - I live in London and it's springtime for the pick pockets too!

I previously posted this bag here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=83570.0, but I think it qualifies as a "spring bag."

Bag Title: Batik Tote

Materials Used:  
Batik scraps from previous purses that I made
Darker cotton fabric for the back
Lightweight fleece (I prefer that to interfacing).

Here's my spring bag.  My daughter loved this purse so much I had to make an identical one for her!  It's green brocaded twill with cotton lining.  The handles are made from clear plastic tubing, tied into a ring with craft yarn and the ends sealed with clear duct tape.  They hold up amazingly well.

It's hard to see, but I added an inner patch pocket for my cell phone.

I am an apologist for the spiders.

Just treat me no differently than you would the Tarantula Queen.

i made and posted this bag quite a while ago (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=76555.0), but it's spring-y enough and i'm desprate for a bag to enter, so here we go:
the orange mushroom and pepper-y hobo bag + wallet!

made from an old t-shirt, some thrift-store fabric, and sequins.
the lining: has mushrooms, peppers, and.....something else. lemon?

and the wallet, i kind of messed up the heart applique so i covered it in fabric paint, not the greatest job on it...

there's plastic on the furniture to keep it neat and clean,
in the pine sol-scented air, somewhere that's green...

By grace I have been saved by grace through faith.
