Side bags

These days were very busy for me. During the weekend we were in our friend's wedding which was beautiful and so special. They are a really matching couple with love and respect to each other and with a strong faith in God. 
My workplace is also busy in these days: conferences and reports... I am really greatful that tomorrow is Friday! And also ends the rainy cold wheather what we had during the whole week. :)
But now I would like to show you my other two bags from closer. 

The asymetric grey bag belongs to the mummy totes, which I posted a few days ago, because I made it on the same simple way. But as I have already mentioned I wanted a personalized piece for everybody. This bag has been made for my sister-in-law, who is a teacher, an artist but first of all she is a mother of four children. I have already showed here some projects which I had made for her dauhters. I have to tell you that my sister-in-law is the biggest fun of my project (besides my husband of course)! She is the first person who I show my running projects and we are talking about craft ideas. She is a creative mind, loves to paint and draw and has an MA in fine arts, so I really appreciate her advices and critics.

I added a little pin into the bag. Isn't is just cute? I saw lot of beautiful felt roses on the web and I have already made a few different, but no doubt this one was my favourite! It is simple and has a really unique looking.

The orange side bag was a little bit more complicated than the other ones, because it has a zips inside. To be honest with you I always feel difficult how to sew the zips in and I always tear it and start allover. Do you have the same problems?

Well, I love this bag also because it was partly an eco-friendly project. The lining was made from my husband's shirt. It was a non-fitting shirt, which I just hated. But he wasn't mad at all, I asked his permission... and this time before cutting :)

So here ends the story of my bags. I am so proud to myself, not just because my ladies loved their gifts it is also because I have learnt a lot of things. There is a phrase: 'practice makes perfect' so I keep on practicing!

Wish you a happy crafty time!
