    I have been sewing up a storm for the diabetic kids charity auction and I thought maybe you all would like to see some of the purses I made the week before last for them.

    Very nice purses. And so thoughtful of you to donate them to charity! I've been looking for a pattern like your shoulder bag. Did you design this yourself or purchase the pattern, if I might ask. Thanks!

    Hi here is the pattern for the one you are asking about... Honestly, there was a ton of hand basting during the assembly. Slow going. Oh there is a zippered pocket under that flap on the front.

    Hi again everyone !! Thanks so much! But, I am not such a nice person... really I am an old meany! LOL!

    Here is the pattern for the back pack looking one

    Good job. I make lots of purses/bags so appreciate all the work you've done. Sure hope the bidders at the auction also appreciate all the craftsmanship.

    Thanks so much everyone! It is a lot of work, but oh so fun to do. I enjoy making bags and purses and change up the patterns to suit myself. When they don't have a zippered pocket inside, I put one there anyway. Everyone likes to have a secure spot , right? I also like a cell phone pocket on the outside. It makes it so easy to find the little thing when it's ringing.

    I am so glad you like them, I am feeling like maybe the auction people will too.

    Love the idea of using outdoor fabric and love how you did all of them ! Quite talented . I for one am not very good at purses ! And for such a good cause. Blessings all around.
