Bags ...


I had a wonderful burst of inspiration over the weekend and made up these two bags..
It was so nice to break out and do something a little different.
I think I mentioned some time back in March that my DS #2 had ten pair of jeans that he wanted the legs cut off to make them into shorts...I did that and then I had all these legs!
I gave some away and with one pair of legs I made up a hexagon bag last March...which I love and use very often.
Then this weekend I thought Cq would look nice made up with the denim..this is what I came up with.
Denim and purple shot taffeta..it looks so much better in real life.
Because of the thickness of the denim, I machined stitched the seam treatments, and added the hand dyed laces which I have beaded. the bag is fully lined with the same purple taffeta, and it is really quite stunning and a very generous size..





This smaller tote bag is made up in a rose tapestry fabric, with a luscious chocolate coloured Taffeta trim...it is also fully lined with the same taffeta.
I had this lovely two tone funky braid which matched perfectly with the tapestry.
I love them both, but I have soooo many bags, I think I might put these up for sale in my Etsy shop, then I can make some more..
