Lavender

HELP! I can’t stop! I’m having too much fun.

I made another bag tonight. Actually, this morning before work, I went downstairs to fold a load of laundry, but instead, I cut out a bag. The outer bag used to be a quilted valance, and the inside used to be a fabric shower curtain.

I cut the strap out into two pieces rather than on the fold, because my strip of fabric wasn’t long enough, so the strap has a stripe on one side….

…and one side does not!

The back looks the same as the front, without the pocket. This bag is actually just a little bit smaller, because the valance was not quite wide enough for the pieces that I usually cut, so I went with what I had, and shortened the length a little too.

Shhhh! Be right back Don’t tell anyone, but I still have not folded the laundry I went down to fold this morning. Maybe tomorrow!

I find myself sewing most every morning no matter what other chores I need to do!

Wow!! You are on a roll with making bags. I am happy to know that I am not the only person who gets distracted when fabric is calling me. :)

Just catching up on your posts...and loving your market bag made from repurposed fabrics...good job!!! Sorry to read about your surgery and glad you are now on the mend.
Is this your bag pattern?

You are going to have to teach me how to make these bags, with the pockets. I've never made a bag. I don't follow patterns well. I get tons of great comments on my bag. If you use quilted pillow shams, I can find lots of cute ones at the thrift stores. PS: folding laundry is highly overrated!
