Bags

I've been sewing some bags. They are all cotton
with a bit of batting between the inside and outside.
I did a bit of hand stitching on the sides of this one, around the circles and added a button in the middle of the circle.
The smaller bag has a black background with autumn leaves, and fruits and pumpkins. I did some stitching on some of the leaves and along the lines of the pumpkins. This bag also has batting between the inside and outside. Also, this bag has gold sparkles on the outside. You can just see a few of them toward the middle of the bag.
I also made a few small cotton wallets and small zipper bags.
Now that I've made a few of each of these, and have tried a couple different patterns, I know which patterns I like and what I'm doing and they make up fairly quickly.
What do you think?

These look great - I think the handstitching is such a good idea, but I have to say your felted pig and crocheted alien from your earlier posts are just fantastic!
