Close Up of one Bag
Eleven Totes or Bags
A month ago I had the opportunity to acquire a bunch of outdoor upholstery sample fabrics. All are woven checks or plaids. Love the variety of colors. Felt inspired to make some totes. After 3, I had enough of that. Then I started creating Messenger Bags. After a few, I started making them smaller. I was having fun until I hit bag 10. By this time, I was bored. After forcing myself to sew up the rest of the fabric today, I felt a sense of relief coupled with the enjoyment of looking at all of these wonderfully vibrant bags. Because the fabric is meant for outdoor use, they are water resistant. Not water proof, but the water does flow off. I think they would be GREAT for travel. To me they look like spring, so I may wait to unveil them in my studio until then. For now I wanted to post because I have completed my "70" self challenge.
