Colours and Bags Galore!

Hello all!!

I thought on this rainy day (well, at least it is raining here in London), I should bring you some colour. Although I haven' posted about my bags in a long while, it doesn't mean that I actually haven't been working quite a lot. I have done four big bags, although I am only showing three today.
The first one is for a friend who I have known for a very long time. She is one of my dearest friends with a beautiful soul and a lovely smile. She ordered an orange bag, and the rest of the design she left up to me (I love orange and green combination. One of my all time favourites). Here it is (as ever, click on the image to enlarge):

and the lining inside:

The other two bags are surprise presents for two beautiful girls I used to work with. I  became good friends with their mum and so two years on, we are still in touch. They now live in Glasgow and I was supposed to see them a few weeks ago. I was sick that day and couldn't meet them, so I put the bags in the post for them. I wish I saw them when they opened their package. Anyway, here are the bags. As the girls now live in Scotland, I went with that theme, and put Scottie dog as buttons:

As I said, I did one more bag, and that one is for me. It is a tote bag and I have been wearing it every day for he last two weeks. The colours are really strong and the bag brightens up the rainy London when I walk down the street (well, I think so). It took me a long time to make it, but it was well worth the effort. I didn't get the chance to take a picture of it, but I will, very soon and of course, I will post it here too.

I hope that you are enjoying the weather whether it's sunny, snowy or rainy. It has been raining really hard in London for a week now. I don't mind it, we need rain, although I have to admit, I am ready for sunshine. In fact I crave sunshine. In the mean time, here is some colour on Boye By Red to brighten up your day.

See you all soon.

Hello Red:
Not only are we filled with admiration at your expertise in making such lovely bags, but are equally impressed at your creativity which can conceive of them in the first instance. Little wonder that your friends were delighted. Indeed, who would not be?

Cool, dry days here are slowly giving way to sunnier and warmer ones with this weekend the forecast showing temperatures approaching 30C. We understand that the weather in Britain is dreadful. Poor you!
