Teardrop bags

I had fun playing with this design.  It was created by the very talented Helen Cleverly, and I have adapted it several times since. This version highlights features of individual pairs of jeans, and has been ideal for some of the more ornate pockets I have found!  Here is a selection from my latest 5 versions:

I'll be sharing this post at these link parties:

  1. What lovely bags - a more unusual shape - perfect for showing off those pockets!

    Found your blog via the Handmade Monday linkup :)

  3. A handy bag AND a great way to show off the pockets on jeans, who could ask for more?
