So I ploughed on and made them all into similar bags, with a the same stripy canvas type of fabric on the back. Also used the striped canvas for the front pockets.
The plainer fabric sports a zipped pocket on the outside...those lacy zips again, and I left the top unstitched, so a pocket there too.
They all have pockets inside, and also slip pockets.
I had it in my mind that they would be simple totes/shoppers, but realised that the pieces were just a bit too small. So I added wadding to make the bags more 'substantial' and also some interfacing and a magnetic closure, so now are large handbags.
I enjoyed the challenge, I like to try and make some different things.
