    Thanks, that was the first one I did-the one that "hooked" me! After making a few Bow Tucks, I ventured into trying others. The blue and brown is a huge week-end tote called Sweet Retreat Weekend Bag by Whistlepig Creek Productions and is 22" x 15" x 8" and the main bag part is all one piece! Also, it is all bound with bias binding I had to make-ALOT of work in this one!!

    You really are busy. Wish I could get into gear enough to get something made. I'm gonna have to get off of here to do it , I think.

    Your bags are so pretty! I don't know how you get so many made. Do you make them to sell, or for gifting?

    I gave 8 away for Xmas/birthday presents, and am making the rest to sell at a local craft/weekend market. Never did anything like that, but I need to earn some money to pay for the fabrics I can't seem to stop buying!!

    Very pretty. I especially like the color combination of the brown and turquoise and those penguins are just adorable.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    Love them all. Can you give us an approximate idea of what you sell them for at a craft fair.

    You really need to try a grommet purse as a different pattern. PM me if you need info. It is so easy and full of pockets. It's my go to one. I usually get my grommets at hobby lobby with the 40% off coupon. You have done a great job on the ones you've done. glenda

    All are so pretty but I truly love the first one you posted. I really like the shape/pattern of it and the fabrics you used.

    I sort of thought about $40.00-don't know if that is too much or not enough. I'll have to research a bit more! The two I did sell (actually, 2 plus a book tote) were $40.00 each.

    Don't know what an X bag is-the yellow/pink daisy is "Jennifer's Bag" by Sewphisti-Cat. It is sort of a Hobo bag-but with inside pockets and outside pockets.
