    Those are really cute. I made some a couple of years ago for my daughters and they still use them. Thanks for sharing.

    I don't know why they post upside down for you- they are right side up on my IPad. I followed the tutorial to take them with my IPad horizontally, which I do. I just checked this thread, and they are straight up to me! Are they upside down for everyone??????

    Very nicely done.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    Yup, all of them! Oh well, they're really nice looking, and the inside has LOTS of pockets like I prefer!

    Great bags.

    My dd's school needs some silent auction items. I think those would be a hit.

    Is it your own design or did you use a pattern?
    Attending University. I will graduate a year after my son and year before my daughter.

    There really isn't a pattern, But the basic method for making them I got off the site Allfreesewing.com and just adapted and customized each pair as I make them. It is a bit tricky sewing through the thicknesses at the top, but you must have a denim needle, and I use denim thread for the top and matching thread in the bobbin for the lining. I make the straps from the legs, and line them with matching fabric. I usually make a tie with 2 X WOF sewn end to end, but I also have just used a belt instead of a tie which also looks great if you find a really great belt. Add any bling as you like. Each bag is unique. I have done over 20 now. They are really fun, and you can pretty much make them how you like them. I sold quite a few at a craft fair before Xmas, and surprisingly, the majority were to women, not teens. I LOVE carrying them and always get complements. Oh, I also use a magnetic closure at the top, which is put into the lining before attaching it to the bag around the top. Sometimes, I use a smaller magnetic snap on an inside pocket, too. You can see several on my Flickr page if you like.

    Funny, some people have them right side up. I wonder if they are right side up viewing on an IPad, which is what I goop the pics with and posted with. On mine, they are correct.

    Those are great and I love the one you made for me. It will be my beach bag. It is so cool how changing the fabric completely changes the look of the bag.

    So glad you like it. It is great how easy it is to change the tie or even replace it with a belt. You can just about make it go with any color so easily. Only the inside stays the same.

    Super cute but I see them upside down too. Years ago I was gifted a jeans purse (I am talking over 10 years ago). The gifter forgot and left the tag in. She got it at a boutique and paid over $50 for it 10 years ago! I used that bag until it fell apart and got so many compliments on it. Kept meaning to try my hand at making them. I never have. Yours are better made with the pockets inside and such.

    Oh Jill, those are so cute. You sure do a good job on them. Did you ever do your boxer pictures?
