this is my entry into the spring bag challenge.
it's made from a shoe again (I can't stop making these)
made with pink nylon that I cut holes into and then inserted black vinyl left from another project and then sort of quilted a bit. I cut the shoe open and used the orginal heel that I glued onto the outside of my sewing and the top front of the shoe is sewn to the front of the purse.The strap is from an old purse that I found on it's way to the trash but I rescued it first.
It has two pockets on the outside of it one with a zipper and a zipper closure. It has four pockets inside as well.

bag title: stems of vines
Materials used:It is made from thrifted brown velvet curtain and green fabric. It is fully lined with the same green fabric that you can see on the vines (stuffed with cotton strings). It have asymmetrical flap and 2 pockets. Main flap and the pocket flap close with stems of vines that go through button wholes. I must admit it is more wonky then things I normally saw but I like to imagine that it adds to "organic" look Grin

I hope you will like it.

I didn't think this one was going to make it, but I pushed through!  I almost gave up last night but after a long shower went back and started sewing again at 1:30 AM.  Cheesy  This is a present for my step-mother's birthday, cause she like's those "healthy back" bags.

Bag Title:  Pretty Healthy Bag  (because it's pretty and it's healthy!)  Smiley
Materials used:   home dec fabric (outside), 14" zipper, velcro, 1.25" rectangular hardware & slide, ribbon & beads for zipper pull; lightweight shirt material (lining) 7" zipper, craft weight sew-in interfacing, thread to match

front, with one velcro pocket:

back with another velcro pocket with a flap:

gusset pocket on outside:

gusset pocket on inside:


pockets on other side, that zippered pocket doesn't want to lay flat against the side wall!  Sad And there's also the pocket sewed to the side wall:
