Watermelon twist travel bags

Whew!  It's been a busy month for me!   I recently started by own business, Kustom Kwilts and Designs, and have been preparing for two upcoming craft shows to sell my products at.  I can honestly say in the last few weeks, I have gained a huge appreciation for artisans who craft their own products and actually make a living doing it.  I am a full-time employed teacher (ag science) and in my spare time...what spare time?...I attempt to stock up for these shows.  This is a set of make-up or travel bags that I recently made that I adore...don't know if I will be able to part with them!  Due to the colors I picked, I call them the watermelon twist set.

Foldable shopper

This is one of my favorite bags I've ever made!  I love the fabric, even though it may be a little young...it's light weight and sturdy.  It has a simple design with a scalloped pocket on the front of the bag.  I'll be putting some of these on Etsy soon, so be on the lookout!

Reversible table runner

This is a reversible table runner for my mom.  She picked out the fabrics that she wanted, and also wanted me to do a scalloped binding.  I had never done that before, but it wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be.  I think it turned out okay for my first time...
