    I'm so glad these are done. I don't like either one. The fabrics are not my thing, but I think they will like them. I waited until the last minute because I just didn't relish the thought of all those fabrics staring at me ;)

    Can I be honest, please don't get mad at me. I love the bags but I do not care for the color combos at all. Sorry.

    Me either! Not mad at all.....

    One teacher really likes purple....purple is NOT my thing...so that was very difficult for me. Had the LQS people put that one together...

    The other one is iffy....I could see one of the prints being used for something....

    But, in the end, I think these ladies will like them and that is all that matters, right???

    the brown sorta reminds you of leather from a distance. i am sure they will just be tinkled pink to get a home made purse for a gift. and a year end gift at that. how thoughtful. never thought of doing that for the teachers when my kids were growing up.--at the end of the yr.

    Hmmm, I personally really like the fabrics in the orange/blue one. I think the green and purple go together, but they aren't fabrics I would choose for myself. You did a great job on both though! Very thoughtful gift for sure!

    That being said. I want to state now... I do not carry a purse, a day bag, or even a euripeon man tote.
    I CARRY A SET OF SADDEL BAGS, over my sholder, or my seat.
    (like the ones used in the movie)
    "Harley-Davidson and the Maroboro MAN"
    Thank you very much for letting me get that straghtened out.
    Whew!!! Thought I saw (MY MANHOOD) being sucked right into one of thoes ladies bags...

    Ray..

    They are the bow tucks bags that everyone seems to be making. They are actually both the same size, just one looks different sized for some reason..
