Big bow shopper

Today's bags have actually been two days in the making.  I made the most of some lovely Kenyan fabrics, brought back from Mombasa for me by Debbie.  These fabrics are a wonderful linen weight, just right for linings. The weave is quite coarse and I had some problems with fraying as I turned the bows - I had to unturn them and restitch - but I like the results.  The main bag bodies are made of strips of denim from different pairs of jeans.  Pleased with how these turned out.

I have design plans buzzing round my head for a new bag; I'm hoping to get started on it tomorrow.  I'm planning to put up a tutorial for it as well.
