More Handbags..New Design

I guess you could call me the "Bag Lady"
Here I go again!
I decided to use some faux leather and see how it went.
The red bag is faux leather with an alligator imprint . The fabric is a heavy duck with a giraffe design. I knew when I saw it I had to have it and I thought the red really complimented it..
The interior of the bag is a red silk with white polkadots which I thought was perfect.The bag has two large zippered pockets inside.
 Very roomy and comfy to wear.

The black bag is the same design.
It is black faux leather on the sides,flap closure  and handles,
The rest of the bag is faux mink  very luxurious looking
I used magnetic closures in both bags, they are so easy and look very nice,
 The lining in this one is a brushed cotton flannel with the leopard print, same two zipper pockets..
I may do some for my Etsy shop later but for now these will be for  a Christmas sale next month.
I really enjoyed using the faux leather. Not  too difficult to sew. It just took a bit of time.Hope you enjoyed seeing them.
Let me know what you think. That is always important for me.
Thanks for stopping by.

Birthday Here AGAIN!

Hello Dear Friends...
Thought I would share my Special Day with you..
Since it was my birthday DH  and my daughter Lynne took me out for dinner at one of my favourite places for chinese buffet the Mandarin.

Had a yummy dinner and my favourite wine topped of with
birthday cake and ice cream(of course!) The waiter was so much fun with his comments and to my surprise snapped a picture.LOL
This is the guy "my Robbie" that has put up with me for 57 years.VBG
Our daughter Lynne is the only one of our children that lives nearby and happily she shared the evening.
Gee being 76 isn't so bad after all!!!!

More Bags

This oriental flavoured bag has a pocket in the front. The pocket is cut to match the background ladies... Neat eh?

 This is the messenger bag I was working on earlier, All finished now.It is a red wool and wool applique.
This is done with wool applique. I just cut out shapes and used my embellisher to attatch them. I love this color combo. The main part of the bag is a heavy fabric which I did a lot of machine stitching on.
This messenger bag has so many possibilities, hard to stop making them.
