Bags, Crochet and Cupcakes and Tea Anyone?

Here are a few of the things I have been working on the past couple of weeks. I just thought I would share them with you.
HELP!
Which bag do you think a 12 year old girl would like the best??
The jean one isn't done being decorated yet. I'm going to add a couple of crocheted flowers to it and I have to finish sewing the lining in.

A bag for a friend

I started crocheting a baby blanket for a friend. She wants all white and Granny Squares.


A little ornament I made for a baby girl
This is the back side

A cupcake wristlet (Purse) I crocheted for Olivia, my 6 year old granddaughters, birthday.
I got started on the cupcake and tea idea and couldn't stop.
I used vintage chenille for the tops and flannel for the bottoms. I haven't finished decorating all of them yet. The tutorial for the cupcakes is on Rachael Rabbit's blog.
I made some Alice in wonderland tea pot tagsand some more cupcake and tea tags

I've been getting quite a bit done actually. My mom wants me to make 25 grocery store type canvas bags for her by the first week in September. I'm definitely going to be busy, busy, busy!

Those cupcakes are too cute! For the 12-year-old - I'm voting for the jean purse. And I LOVE Alice in Wonderland. I'm lobbying my kids for us all to go as characters from Alice in Wonderland for Halloween - they want to be ponies.

Both purses are adorable. Sophia and I love both.

My, my you've been busy! I love all your stuff! I think the denim purse is very teenager-ish. Love those chenille cupcakes. Have a great weekend. Twyla

You have been so incredibly creative and busy. The tags are terrific as are the bags!!!

You've been busy! Everything looks great. I think the jean bag would be good for a 12 year old but my daughter's only four so maybe I'm wrong. TI don't have experience with 12 year olds. Either way they all look great!

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
