    I love your bags! I would not have even thought of using pillow shams to make bags. You did a great job. I love this board. I am learning so much from all of you.

    Bravo! What a lovely purse! That was most definately $4 well spent. I am all for recycling/repurposing things.

    Great re-purposing! I've also seen shams with little or no use and never thought of a purse! Very PRETTY!

    Love the messenger bag you made. Think I've seen this pattern on the web. Job well done
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    Julie in NM...you did. I did post where I found it, too, on the original post. The 2nd one I just cut it down 2" all around. This week I found that she has instructions for an 8x8, so I think with the leftover scraps I have I will make that one, too. I may keep that one for myself & sell the other 2...I prefer small purses for myself.

    I am so glad you posted that you buy these beautiful quilted shams too. I have a collection all ready to go for purses and totes. I have bought many of these for just $1.00 a sham. Yours turned out just the way I am thinking mine will turn out too. I do like the little ribbon on the zipper, neat touch.

    That was the first time I had bought shams to make as purses...I haven't found any that just struck me that way since. I have lots of upholstry fabrics & denims...never mind the extensive cotton stash...for my purses. Would love to see some pics of yours...bet they'll be beautiful too! BTW, if the pull has a hole in it...I put a ribbon pull on it...no matter if it's outside or inside; just makes it easier to find & pull the zipper. I have always done it on my purses & found that people really like it.
    Thanks everyone for the nice comments.
