Skull and Roses Messenger Bag and iPad Case Set

I really liked how the cupcake messenger bag I made for my now failed Craft Challenge came out so when I was asked to make one (along with an iPad case) for an order, I was excited.  The messenger bag is lined with a stiffer red fabric and interfacing to give it more stability.  Again, a front pocket was added for the smaller items. 

This was my first time making an iPad case and I made it a little differently than I did with the Kindle cases I've made in the past.  For this one, I added an outside pocket and a zipper opposed to a foldover flap for closure. Also used felt to give it added padding to help protect the iPad.

A matching tissue holder is also shown in the picture above.

Ruffle Purse

I made this ruffle bag for my friend, Karey who requested it after seeing this purse on Pinterest.   I have to admit, this purse was a lot of work since I never read the directions thoroughly and just end up tackling the project head on after skimming the tutorial.  Of course, there is actually a lot more detailing than what I normally have patience for and I have to say, I am once again pleased with the outcome.  Enough that I'm willing to make another one or two as gifts.
