So I’ve spent the last couple of days working on some new quilted bags and I can tell you that while these things can take just as long as making one of my quilts, they’re a different kind of fun and I’m learning some really cool techniques.
This caddy was made using a pattern from ByAnnie.com and I love Annie’s finishing touches. I don’t like loose bag linings and I’m not a fan of having raw seam allowances exposed, so I appreciate her attention to detail. There are so many pockets inside and out – this is a great little storage caddy that can be used for so many different things!
The floral bag below is my own design using some of the simple techniques I’ve learned from other patterns. It has a slip pocket on each side and big inside zippered pocket.
More bags (AND QUILTS!) to come as I keep busy tucked inside my house avoiding the extreme heat we are experiencing right now!
Here’s a video of me opening a fat quarter bundle I’ve been waiting for; it’s loaded with great prints for more bags 🙂
