Neck pocket bags

These seem to me to have a particularly masculine feel to them - good for teenage boys maybe?  Or maybe just for the tomboys.  Certainly they have sold well.

Bright drawstring tote

This version is a very colourful one.  I used different denims for the stripes this time - it was simply a matter of what came to hand!

Another gym bag

A tutorial should appear for these at some point.

For this version I rang the changes by piecing the top from four inch squares.  The pockets around the bottom are useful spaces for odds and ends - tissues maybe.  This time I used a frond pocket as well.

Pockets on a string again

Making these purses when I have particularly attractive pockets gives an especially pleasing result.  These purses did not stay in stock for long!

Peg / stallholder aprons version 2

This is a second version of my latest restocking of aprons, this time with a fresh green leaf print binding.  It is quite fun to sue up nice jeans labels on this design as well.  This has already sold.

Multipatch bag: Russian dolls

This design proved to be rather time consuming, and I have not yet made a decision about whether or not to restock it.  I didn't make it easy for myself by using a variety of embroidery patterns, but it did add to the appeal!
Russian dolls seem very popular still, so I suspect this will come in for a remake.

Striped drawstring tote version 2

Like the first version, this came from a set of curtain samples.  The weight of curtain samples is a great match for denim and makes for a tough bag.

More gym bags

This was another fairly large bag.  It included a fastening pocket (I try to include one of these whenever possible) - useful for a phone.

Stringy pockets again

Like the previous set, these pocket purses have a button closure.  Recently I have been making more with zip closures, but it was fun using up some of my stock of antique buttons on these.
