    Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.

    Very nice bags and great idea to re-purpose shams.

    I also have bought many beautiful shams because I have seen the beauty and know what can be done with them. Your bag is really pretty. Thanks for the pictures.

The ribbon pull goes on most of my zippers, especially inside. I do it because I hate looking for that little pull, so figured others would feel the same way. It's just one of my little touches. I PLAY with purses to get away from the craft booth items & quilting...I get bored easily & that's why my creations are "Exclusively, Just One Of A Kind"...I only make one of anything exactly alike. Keeps life interesting anyway!

    That was the first time I bought shams...never looked at them that way till I saw these...guess I'll be looking for more unique ones from now on!

Now I know what to do with them.

    The last week has been spent making purses...got those 2 done along with these. 1. I posted this pic for the UFO's, but here's the stories. The toille purse is from a piece of fabric hubby picked up for me last year at a yardsale he somehow hit without me along. There are pockets on outside front & back, & 4 pockets inside. The other one was a big surprise UFO I had totally forgotten about. It was what I was working on 9/11/01! I guess it got put aside and forgotten all this time, till I found it Tues. I remade fabric using scraps of cordouroy & denim (from cut up pants) & 1" black between...that was as far as it got at that time. So when I found it Tues. I figured it was time to get it made up so it could go to a new home. I didn't put pockets or anything on the outside as I wanted the piece to shine for itself, but inside there are 2 pockets & penholder. It was nice to finally get it done! 2. These are cross-body purses I made. Like I've said, I just play with purses... (Left) Sewing kitties fabric I found...pocket in back & 2 pockets & zippered pocket inside. (center) Pockets everywhere denim purse...4 pockets outside, 2 pockets inside. (right) Faux leather with front & back outside pockets, 2 pockets & zippered pocket inside.

    It must be so nice to see something like this and have the imagination to see other creations from it. You have my admiration.

    Wow! Those came out really nice. You have a good eye and it is always great to find something that is just what you need to make something else. :-)
