Description


The purple and bule bag was my "practice" gift bag for the Pretty in Patchwork Holiday Sew Along for May.  I retook the picture so you could see the lining.  The second bag I made today with a rose print fabric on the inside. My daughter is loving these little bags and wants to keep them all. :smile:

Amanda

So cute! These are such great bags and your fabrics are so soft and pretty!

Kruppcake

So sweet! Nice decorative stitching along the top.

Skynme

Amanda, Carolmarie, and Kruppcake...Thank you! This was super fun and easy to make. I had ordered the Linen and it just happened to arrive the same day as I received my mini charm pack club (Fat Quarter Shop) package. Having the mini charm packs really came in handy for this style gift bag. I think I will get some ribbon this weekend and make a few more bags like this and then do a couple of the strip bags. Im going to use different decorative stitching on each bag and I will post more pics when I am done.

Is it a lined bag? I couldn't tell from my computer.

Skynme

Charlie yes it is but I took the picture with my cell phone and it got cut off. I used a scrap of kona solid in a lavender color but I don't know the exact color since it came in a pack.

Sewzalot

I love how your bags turned out! Really love that extra stitching you added around the top.

Charlie

Thanks Skynne, your new picture shows thelining very well. Sewzalot is right, the addition of the decorative stitching adds such a nice touch.

Mymble

They look great!

Caribousmom

Somehow I missed seeing yours - beautiful!!!

Skynme

Caribousmom- Thank you! I hope you are feeling better and are having a fast recovery.

Don't forget that mom mentioned how much she liked these when I showed her the pictures. She WOULD REALLY LIKE ONE, especially if you could make a mid-size that she could use like a small purse. wink wink
