New bags I've made

Today I want to show you three bag I made recently: two are made of recycled upholestery damask and one of organic fabric I received from Retro.

I can't stop sewing my recycled damask!
I love the quality of this kind of fabric (used in upholstery); it's strong and heavy, but soft to touch, and it has great colors and patterns.
With a large sheet of it I've recently realized two accessories: a shoulder bag and a bag for bicycle. Their "natural" colors recall to my mind countryside and summer adventures in wild nature.

This is the bag (mum is posing for the photo, eh eh):

It has a green lining, made of upcycled linen from old clothes. If you are interested, it's available here.

This is the bike bag:
It has a recycled lining (beige) and two vintage bottons from mum's collection.
A kind american buyer purchased it two days ago.
EDIT: and it has been featured in Imaginative Bloom blog!
Recycled damask bags are a sort of best seller in my shop and I received amazing feedbacks about them from buyers. I'm so happy people appreciate them so much! I'm going to sew other bags with this fabric this summer.
Also the bike bags/baskets I made are sold out, now. I'm a passionate biker and I can understand why people like them.

The third bag I want to show you is this white and pink candy I made for Retro. It is made of leftovers of high quality organic fabrics. It's the 4th bag I make for Manuela; she suggested me the colors' combo and I liked it, because it's romantic and feminine.
Available here for italian buyers.

I love sewing bags. It's really my favourite craft activity!
