Bags 4 & 5

These bags are both ones that I just kinda made up as I went along. I hope that I will get better at that as I go but honestly I don't recommend it for those of you there that are thinking of picking up sewing. Patterns are our friends.

This first one is so cute. Pictures just don't do them justice. This is a smaller bag that was per Alanna's suggestion. It's lined with 4 pockets and it has raw edges on the floral fabric that I think adds a lot of character.

The second one reminds of a little girls dress. It's pleated at the top and then angles down. It has 4 pockets inside and is not as big as it looks. The colors are a deep green and a rich deep red the flash apparently washes it out. I made a nice long wide strap so you can wear it across you if you wish. I really like bags like that since I tend to have kids all over me. I don't have to keep putting it up on my shoulder.

Ms. Alisa recommend a web site were I can sell these and I am in the process of setting that up. I named the shop "Leesy K Bags" after Anneliese Keegan. The logo I created is up in the left corner of the blog. I figure in time if I keep making these she'll participate and I can't wait to make her little purses to carry around :) I'm having a lot of fun creating! I hope you don't mind reading all about it :)
