More Bags

I've been putting off this posting but I've had a few people asking to see what I've been making, so here it is.  I made a few bags for Christmas gifts and then a few after that.

This one went to my mom.  She wanted one with a flap.  (This bag doesn't have a name yet.)  She also loves denim.  It's not denim but it's a close color.

This bag went to my mother-in-law.  She is all about black and red.  Her bags can usually pass for luggage (in my opinion) so she got the Big Bucket Bag with some fun lining.

This bag went to my sister-in-law.  She also likes big bags but she is very trendy so she got the Modern.

I also had an order come in at the beginning of December.  A friend wanted to surprise his wife.  She wanted the Bohemian.  It's similar to the first one I sold.  She loved it.

After sewing for everyone else I needed to make myself a little something.  This is the Fresh Bag.  It's similar to the Modern but it has an extra double pleat, pointed corners, and it's smaller.  I use this one all the time because as I stated in the previous post I'm READY for Spring.

Earlier this month I had an order from my future sister-in-law.  She wanted a Mom Bag (formerly call the Diaper Bag) for her sister.  This turned out beautifully.  I'm going to have to use that center fabric and the ribbon for something for myself.  Love it!

Then I had someone ask about a scripture tote for her daughter that's getting baptized this month.  I worked something out.  It turned out so cute.  I'm sure I'll be getting more orders for this one, especially since it's only $15!  There's even a hidden pocket in the back.

I just finished a smaller version of the Mom Bag for my other sister-in-law.  I hope she doesn't mind me posting the pictures before she sees it tomorrow.  She's already had a sneak peek.  She requested an inside pocket with a flap so her wallet won't fall out.

I'm taking orders.  Please contact me @ kellaford@gmail.com.

Those are amazing, Kelly! You are so talented. They don't look the tiniest bit homemade. The tote is amazing. The problem is not deciding which to get, but how to limit myself!

You are SO talented! I saw Maddie's bag you made for her today at her baptism and we were all dying over how cute it is and how great the price is! Seriously, you could charge so much more. I still need to figure out what I want for my bag... maybe a diaper bag when a new baby comes...
