Bags for Christmas

These are book bags made with a thicker material, and assembled in a whole new way. The handles were a pain to make, but I had cut out several pieces already so I stuck it out and followed the book's instructions.

I know a woman who is really into these kinds of bags. Hope she likes it.

The lining is the same material as the outside top piece of the bag.

This time the pouch is padded with the material I use when quilting.
It's a really good size for many things.

Inside. I like using colors that contrast, even clash with each other.

Side view.

Pencil Carrier

One of my new sewing books had a picture of zipper sewing that lifted my fear of giving pouch making another try.

I needed to make gifts for teachers.

I made several. I am not quite at the stage of the learning curve where the skill is second nature.
