Today's bags

Allow me to introduce you to Very Bad Sue!
Needing to calm her troubled mind, Sue has taken off her cumbersom bonnet and prairies dress and is taking a nice ride on her motorcycle! This one of a kind bag is 10"x10.5" tall. Sue and her motorcycle are machine appliqued, her fringe and handlebars have been drawn with a permanent heat-set ink. She is surrounded by batik fabrics and the back of the bag is all scrap-pieced batiks and machine quilted in a free style. The bag is lined with a black and red Betty Boop on motorcycles print. It zips shut along the top and has a 40" long strap for cross-body ear making it a perfect bag to take motorcycle riding!

I have one more of these Bad Sue bags in mind, but it will be a bigger, tote like bag with shorter straps and pockets. This bag seen here will be available locally for $38. After that there are no more Very Bad Sue Bags unless made upon special request.

Also today I have a small clutch or hang bag. Made from recycled blue jeans it has a hybiscus flower appliqued on the front and small handles and button tab made from the same fabric. The button is wooden, very cool with the jeans and the lining is a cheery green color to go with the leaves of the flowers. This bag will also be available locally at a show in May for $15.

Today I didn't get anything else done, LOL! Except hold Hannah who was particularly cuddly today and I spent 45 minutes singing to Jeremiah to fall asleep for a nap. Time well spent!
