New Order

I had a casual order set up just before Xmas. What is a casual order? Well, it was an unofficial, no money down discussion with a fellow Plurker about a bag she would like. I finally finished it. It was never meant to be started before the new year. But...well...it still took me a while to get back into the swing of things. She did say that is was a "just because" bag, so no rush. Well, here it is. I really liked how it turned out.

And there is even a zip pouch that goes with it. I have a clasp on the inside that it or keys could attach to also. I started making the making the pouches to be sold with this size back in the fall. They are rather large bags and I know that for myself, I like to have something smaller to keep stuff in for quick access.


And on another note...
I have been thinking about messenger bags a lot because of all the embroidery pieces I have completed but are just laying around by their lonesomes. No bag attached. No pillow. No hoops. I do not think I will make all of them into messenger bags due to the pricey'ness. I may list them as ready-to-hang in-the-hoop pieces with the option of being made into more. Not sure yet.
Any thoughts?

Nice bag! When I was really into embroidery, I created a lot of small pieces and put them in 4 inch frames that I bought a load of. The frames hang from the wall by a ribbon and they look really cute with the embroidered piece in them.

This bag is really nice - those two fabrics look great together & the extra pouch is very handy. I've been keeping stuff in pouches so it's easy for me to switch bags whenever I want, too.

That fabric is gorgeous. I would not be able to stand not making that into something. Your purse and little bag are beautiful. Nice job. I am having a giveaway on my new blog if you would like to check it out.
