Bagging it

I've been working on some bags that a co-worker wanted for some Christmas presents. I forgot to take pictures of the ones for her girls, but here is the one I did for her mother in law.
She said her mother in law likes Victorian things, purses, stuff like that.  I dug into my stash of tapestry vests..........remember the 80's? and did a sort of crazy patch tote with those and some antique crochet and beading things that I had in my various stashes.  It's so GOOD to use stuff up!!
Then I used my new French manicure kit on my nails.
I am finding it amusing that I painted my fingernails to look like fingernails!  Who thought that one up???

and yes, for those observant friends, that is a new bag in parts under my hand......... just wait for it!

I try not to take pictures of my hands. My nails are a mess.

I'm with Paula. Hand photos with gloves only. LOL I've tried a french manicure kit and it wasn't that good. May I ask what you found? Nice work on the tote.

Yes Mare, you are quite the bag lady--and I mean that in the nicest way! Hee Hee.
In all seriousness, your bag is lovely and I'm sure will be much appreciated!

I love that contemporary fabric under your beautiful nails!! The Victorian bag is really cool too.
