thing a day; six

I am very pleased with how these little tote bags turned out. The tutorial was very easy to follow! I made 5 bags at once. I often find it easier to do more than one thing at a time, and it doesn't take much more time to do that.
It was my first time making a lined bag, and I am sure it won't be the last now I know how! I imagine a little appliqué would make the bag more interesting, although they look cool as they are, with a little surprise of colour in the lining. I used some old chambray fabric and cotton print fabric out of my stash, as it doesn't use a whole lot of fabric it's a great to use the old bits and pieces up. :)
One will go to Jaime-Lee (Bree's friend) and one to Ailish (Hope's friend) who are having birthday's this Saturday! The other three are going to be part of the girls Valentines Day presents. I must say , I am so stoked with how they turned out! My sewing skills have improved ten-fold since I started this blog just over a month ago!!!
