St. Patrick's Day Bags

Yes, I know it isn't even Valentine's Day yet, but St. Patrick's Day will be here before you know it, and everyone needs her own special purse to carry in honor of that occassion, doesn't she?

...Okay, that's a stretch, but my favorite customer Debbie needed shamrock-themed bags for herself and her daughter (a school teacher), so here are the two designs I made for them to choose from.

First choice:

Bright green with shamrocks, checkerboard and stripes!

One pocket inside and one outside.

Second choice:

Dark green with shamrocks and stripes!
I made one large and one small of each fabric combination (Debbie carries the large bag and her daughter prefers the small one.)  I REALLY should make one of these for myself, because my birthday happens to be on St. Patrick's Day!  But it's hard for me do that; I always feel that I should be sewing to fill up my little booth at the local store.

Debbie, I hope you and your daughter LOVE these bags.  (I guess it's time to start looking for Easter fabrics now...)

Ohhhh!
Those are gorgeous, Leslie!
I didn't think I could pull off a green bag until this very moment. They are cheery and classy at the same time, sooo fresh looking. Brava!

I think I've said this before but I REALLY want to see Debbie's purse closet. These will make really fun additions to her collection!
