Wristlets are a great small gift idea! They are inexpensive as well as a unique gift that anyone woman could use!! The first one is for my sister who called dibs on the Flare bag I made recently in the same fabric, she wanted a matching wristlet. The other two were ordered as Christmas gifts.
After I posted the other hot pink and black Ashlyn bag I made on my facebook, I immediately got an order for one as a Christmas gift. So here it is. It's a tad different which I like to do because I can't have any two bags exactly the same, can I? No way!! I love this style bag!

Apparently Mickey Mouse is pretty popular! I got two more Mickey bags after posting the Mickey Mini-Messenger....wow, that's a tongue twister! I really like the change of the Flare style for this Mickey bag and once again, the Mickey head really makes this bag!!
This Tulip Bag turned out so cute!! It was ordered as a Christmas gift for someone who loves lime green but the giver of this bag loves hot pink so she wanted some pink added. I was a little leary about how it would look but the pink buttons are an awesome accent to this bag!! This bag is larger than my normal tulip bag.

This is a black tulip bag that I normally make with two fabrics but the customer wanted something all black. I like it with all one fabric!! Tulip bags are one of my smaller bag styles so if you don't carry a lot and want a bag that is different, the tulip is perfect!!

I wanted to try something new and I had these bamboo handles for a few years and never used them. So I thought it was the perfect time to try them out. I am a scrapbooking consultant and I loved a paper pack that had brown, pink and green so what better color scheme to use for his Naomi bag!! This style is very roomy, as you can see. As soon as I posted this bag on my facebook, a customer turned friend from California wanted it. Thanks, Betty!

I had a request for a snowflake bag and the customer and I thought a snowflake instead of my typical flower would be a great added touch to a snowflake themed bag. So here it is!! I think the snowflake turned out great on this mini-messenger. This bag had a short strap and hangs just under the arm. Let it snow!!

This mini-messenger was made because I had an order for a "Disney" bag. I thought black, red and yellow would look good and I could try to incorporate Mickey Mouse in it. I found the red fabric online and it has little Mickey heads on it. So of course I had to replace my normal "Casey flower" with Mickey's head and it turned out really well!!!

I absolutely love this color scheme!! I made this diaper bag as a gift for my cousin who is expecting a baby boy before Christmas.
I loved the color scheme so much I had to make another bag with these fabrics! This is a Flare Bag. I love how the yellow flowers make the bags!!

This is a smaller version of a Florence Bag. I questioned my choice of the dark brown with the plaid but after it started coming together, I really liked the contrast. These are matching mom and daughter bags.
This is a mini-folio bag that is for a 7 year old. She'll look so cute with a bag that matches her mom's!!

I found a pack of pre-cut squares of coordinating fabric and I thought it might make a nice bag. This was supposed to be an Ashlyn Bag like the hot pink and black bag but I forgot to sew pleats in it!! Can you believe that? I guess having 4 children wouldn't have anything to do with being forgetful! :)

This is the Ashlyn Bag. I named it after my very good friend Ashley Lynn who has been my friend since kindergarten. Even though this bag isn't for her, I felt it fitting to name it after her since her fav colors are hot pink and black. I love the way it turned out!!

I made this Flare Bag for my friend for her birthday. She picked out the fabric and wanted a "double flower" which I never thought of before. Great idea, Ang, because it turned out beautiful!! I love, love, love this bag!! My 7 year old daughter told me I should make a bag like this for myself....unfortunately I'm in diaper bag mode now and don't have enough arms for a baby, a diaper bag and a purse!!

Brown and pink is definitely the most popular color scheme among my costumers. Ladies show off their bags to their friends and the next think I know, I have more pink and brown bag orders! This bag was ordered in that way. Thanks, Dawn!
I was so thrilled when I found this brown polka dot fabric and the pink paisley! When I saw them in the store I envisioned what they would look like together in a bag and it's better than what I thought!! The button on this flower is an old button from a collection of buttons that my mom's cousin had. Nothing beats the look of a unique, old button. I love this bag!

I actually made this Diaper Bag for myself. My other one was smaller than I liked so I made this one so I could fit everything I need in it. In the second picture you can see I have my black Sleepy Wrap, a receiving blanket and burp cloth, diapers, a extra outfit and all the other things needed for diaper changing. In the outside bottle pocket, I have a water bottle. This diaper bag is definitely large enough to hold everything I need when going off with the baby.

I made this diaper bag before my son was born in March but couldn't post it until after it was given to the expectant mom at her baby shower. So hopefully she liked it!! I tried something a bit different for this bag, the patchwork isn't the normal 5x5 squares because I didn't have enough of some of the fabrics so I decided to just use random sizes of fabric. I think it's cute!

Well, this is the first bag I've made since the birth of my son. I still am getting used to saying "my son", it's great! This bag was ordered and paid for before he was born and the woman was so wonderfully patient with me in getting it done. I really appreciate that, Tiffany!
