Autumn seems just around the corner.

It seems people are already moving toward autumn and winter because the commissions I have had lately are more winter than summer colours.

Here are some pictures of a commission for a small bag for somebody who normally drags half her household stuff with her (you never now when you need something!). It is made of handwoven wool and faux black suede:

Front with large pocket.
The adjustable strap is wool on one side and faux suede on the other.
Seen from above with open slip pocket.
Inside with one slip pocket and a ring for the key.
Back with smaller pocket for tickets.

Back closed

Back open with large slip pocket

Front with large zippered pocket

Main body of the bag with magnet closure

S&J bag with a twist

I have used the pattern for the S&J bag to make a shoulder bag with two handles attached to the bag with eyelets and hooks. The fabrics I used are faux suede and cotton with printed dots. This is the first time I am using this system for two handles and this is what the prototype looks like - without words:
