Bags, bags

I am happy to report that I made lots of progress on my purses that I started last weekend.  All the parts have been quilted and 2 are totally done.  Lilacs say spring to me, and so does the calendar even though Mother nature isn't cooperating fully yet.

The front with its center pocket and 2 pockets on the sides.  

 The back. The side ties can be untied for expansion if needed!


 The inside with 8 more pockets to keep you totally organized!!  And a magnetic snap to keep your belongings safe.


Don't you just love this blue and purple on black-so striking!  It even has a bit of metallic gold in there.  It is so labor intensive to write a pattern so I have never done that, these are all made with just the notes I have written on paper. 


 The handles are each approximately 21" long.

 And it's cute aqua side pockets. 


I made DH snap a picture of me with the purse over my shoulder so you can see if can be worn that way or just holding the straps by your hand if you wish.    The purse is approximately 12.5" x 10" and 4" deep.   I use a foam core board in the bottom covered with a coordinating fabric.

These can be found in my Etsy shop.

  5. I'm sure you do these mostly from memory, with those notes at hand, just in case! Do you keep track of how many you have made? Both of these are very nice!

  6. Hi Vicki,
    Great bags! WOW - eight pockets inside! That should keep even the messiest person organized and not saying where the heck are my keys?! My favorite part - the side pockets! I don't know if I could pick a favorite. Purple/lilac does say Spring in a big way but I love the blue and black. You finished both of them so nicely. ~smile~ Roseanne

  7. Oh your beautiful bags! That one you're holding in the picture sure looks good with jeans! I'm curious how many bags you have made? Do you know? I visited your Etsy store and it is looking GREAT! Those watermelons are my favorite!

  8. Gosh, these are both so beautiful! I'm definitely going to keep these in mind for my Mom's birthday. You have them really reasonably priced, too. When I clicked thru, Etsy told me you don't ship to the Bahamas. For some reason, that made me laugh! Does ANYONE ship to the Bahamas? :)

  10. Those are really great, Vicki! Is it your own design? You really do need to write a pattern for them!
