Bags, Bags and more Bags (or are they?)!

I haven't posted for a while but I have managed to get in some sewing.
I've been busy making these 5 handbags. Or are they handbags?
They are actually lavender filled handbags for your wardrobe or drawers.
This one's my favourite.
The pattern is by Nicole Mallalieu Design and was in a recent issue of Homespun (No. 85). They were fun and quick to make. The hardest part was finding the dried lavender to put into them!
I made this shopping bag for my substitute mother (a long standing story) Kath, for her birthday. It's a really easy pattern that I got of Leanne Beasley's blog and it's a very useful, everyday kind of bag.

Awww, so cute! Such sweet little purses! I love the pink one that you took the closeup of! Isn't dried lavendar expensive?!? I think I'm going to have to read up on how to dry your own.
