making a little bag factory

I have just finished sewing the big totes for Kaith. However, I have no time to rest because I have more bags to make for my sister’s workmates.

This is the bag that my sister stole and shamelessly pimped at her office, contributing to the onslaught of orders.

And this one was shipped off to my mother. I also sent her the “Sunny Side Up – Rice Field” bag. The feedback that I got was, Thanks for the bags. They match my Monday and Tuesday uniforms. (She’s a university professor and that statement was an oh-so-subtle attempt to force me to make her bags that would match her Wednesday and Thursday uniforms. Fridays are washdays.)

And this brown one I made for me, initially. But it turned out too cute that I don’t want to make it dirty. It’s made of this beautiful Japanese linen with prints of cats and washed-out city buildings. I cut the fabric in a way that would take advantage of the prints’ horizontal pattern. I even used my favorite glossy and thick brown fabric for the lining.  This one will have to find a new home soon or it will become another dust magnet in my room.
