Reversible Bucket Bag

As promised, here are some of the purses I made for a local shop, Aline's Cards and Gifts.  You can see them on my Facebook.  It's a Reversible Bucket Bag pattern by Lisa Lam.
This is a nice large bag, but not too big you'll need back surgery at the end of the day!  As I said, its reversible.  The denim and toile has a handmade flower pin used for the closure.  You can un-pin it and use on the other side, too!

 This is my favourite, its a sweet butterfly print.  Its trimmed in the yellow print which the flower is made from, too.  The other side is the green gingham print.  You can also unpin it to use on the reverse side of the bag for the closure.
On this plaid and burghandy purse, I sewed a button on each side that you use for the closure.  Sometimes, you don't want a flower, but I can make one on request!

This backpack purse is a really gorgeous bag.  I used some fun fabrics in light yellow, light blues and light greens.  The flap fabric is a butterfly fabric.  The straps and the lining are a Moda print in light blue and white clouds.  The flap closure buttons using a big blue flower print button.

As soon as I find the creator of the bag pattern, I'll add it in.  It just slipped my mind, hmmmm!

Now, on to my sweetie.  A few weeks ago he went to a "shoot".  Its a bow shooting competition.  I was thrilled he got a snap of him, "in action"!
Frank, the love of my life... and the love of his life (bow shooting). LOL
Our wedding anniversary is coming up.  We were married July 7, 1990.
We won't be having too much celebration, however, as I have shingles!  Blecckkk!
Sorry, honey, "Will you take a raincheck?" 

My dh Frank shooting his bow at a competition.  What a sweetie!
