I'm adding pictures of my first attempt at making scrappy quilt bags to my garden. I used a pattern for the bag with no name. Then I made my own pattern for my daughter-in-law's bag. I embroidered her name. She wanted a bag to carry her computer. My bag (bottom picture) looks great when I'm wearing jeans.

love them both - they look so professional! I too really like the bow detail on your purse's strap. What a cute touch!! I admire the way you used the decorative stitches too. I always get kind of intimidated when trying to do that. Thanks for sharing.

Love both bags... You did a wonderful job as you surely know.. Enjoy seeing that you used the dec stitches on the patchwork..The bow make out of a section of the strap and button are just the finishing touch.. Thank you for the inspiration..

I'm sure it looks great when you wearing jeans. Its beautiful with the flower fabric. And I do no sure how to say this, but the sewing of the parts, its perfectly stitched en pieced together.

Okay, you teased me. You mention a pattern for your bag but not where you got it. Brand name pattern? Free pattern? They are both lovely. Very nice idea and beautiful work.

I had an old simplicity pattern my mother gave me years ago when I was not sewing. I kept it just in case one day I would sew. It came in handy. My daughter-in-law-'s bag was just a rectangle (we wont tell her, lol)

sharonleekesner by sharonleekesner 11 Feb 2014

Thanks for answering. I have a few bag patterns I better go look at. Hahahaha, the rectangle is also something I need to make for my laptop. I have the old 40 pound leather laptop case that was the "thing" to have in 2000. Thank God somebody got smart and figured out a padded lightweight bag would work wonderfully and save the shoulders. Really exceptional ideas, both.
