A new Autumn Handbag

Using Ric Rac's 1 hour tutorial, I managed to whip up this new Autumn Handbag. Can you spy my new lables??? I bought this lovely cord fabric at the quilt show from the "bag lady" and am very impressed with myself that I have actually used something I bought so soon. Usually it takes me ages to use, and by that time I am either over it, or don't like it anymore, so "congratulations" I say!

When I get busy sewing Miss Flowergarden usually likes to get in on the act, so she also made a handbag, but changed the design slightly and added the lovely flower embellishment. I was very proud of her efforts.
Can you believe this is "Chick Chick"?????? alias "Chook Chook!!!"

Both bags look great and I totally understand about the fabric and using it quickly. I have so much that I haven't used. But I did go to Spotlight today and only bought thread.
Just look at Chick Chick, he/she is a very lovely Chook now.
