Default A bunch of bags

Back in May, a very senior friend ordered 3 bags--for Christmas! She has had some health issues lately and I think she wanted everything ready 'just in case'. Her instructions were very non-specific. 'You know what I like' was about it. I know that she loves scrappy, bright and different. And I love to play around with miniturizing traditional patterns. I wanted her to have a choice--not just 3 bags. So here they are. I wonder which ones she will choose. Thanks for looking.

Tough to choose; all fit the description of scrappy, bright and different. I will add fabulous too. I bet she ends up taking all of them haha!

Yes QuiltE, I always put a zippered pocket in the bag. I also add a magnetic closure at the top and reinforce the straps with 4 or 5 lines of stitching. I have also started putting dark fabric on the bottom of the bags. i think it keeps them looking cleaner. But they are all washable too.

I am with those who said its too hard to pick only 3 and that she will want them all! You are kind to give her choices.
Your bags are all so pretty. What stabilizer do you use? I like the smooth look of your bags.
