Teacher Bag

Exotic Bags By Matthea

This is a bag that I created for an elementary school teacher, who also likes frogs! It is reversible, and is stiff enough to stand upright.
The dimensions are approximately 15" x 10" x 3"

Exotic Bags By Matthea

In my "Other life", I've been unfortunately rather busy. However, I've made a few items that I really am happy with. None are for sale at this time - they have either been for personal use or a gift.

A london fabric bag, 17.5" inches long, 7" tall, 3" wide. I added a magnetic snap closure, but making this bag again, I'll definitely add pockets!

This shoulder bag does not have a stiff shape, but has 3 layers of fabric to give it some structure, but still allow movement. I used a magnetic snap closure, and added zip pocket on one side and patch pockets on the other.

This was my first foray into making a bible cover. I have one of the two translation ones, so it's rather large and stiff, and I wanted something to carry it in, but I was not into the zipper closure. However, I discovered AFTER I made it that there is a reason that they have one. I added an "after-market" snap closure. Now that I've made it, I know how I'd make one better in the future!
