Bags for my Sisters

Had some denim remnants and made some bags from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing. It was super easy to make.

Because the bag does not have a zipper or any closure, I added a small detachable change bag. Inserting the zipper to the pouch was the only frustrating part of the project but I found a great tutorial, which helped a lot. There's also this and this, which are different versions but seem equally easy and helpful.

One bag for Sister B...
You won't believe it, but the lining is actually a rice bag. Once upon a time, rice came in fancy fabrics before transitioning to nylon.

and one for Sister C...
Next, I want to make one for myself!

Wow, the bags are beautiful! It's functional and yet stylish!!! I love the label that says "handcrafted by peggy", did you make it with your sewing machines or have it custom made?
