Assorted designs and gifts – talk about a learning curve!

Two-tone Vinyl Handled Purse with Detachable Strap

I made this little bag to match two different pairs of shoes.  The perfect addition to that spring or summer outfit.

2 tone bag handles up
Carrying options are the padded soft handles or a store-bought detachable strap.
2 tone bottom
SIlver colored metal feet help keep the bottom dirt free.

2 tone top & inside view

A tab closure & magnetic strap plus a zip closure center pocket are features of this up-cycled drapery lining interior.

Zebra Print & Pink Vinyl Tote

This bag was done on my regular sewing machine – fun gift for a family member.  I knew so little about construction at the time; the bugger had a short life…not sure I will try again as no two bags are alike!

The silver metal hardware was just the right accent for this open tote large enough to carry a laptop or tablet.
