We'll start with the latest one I made. A friend admired my other bags and said she would like one too. So off we went down to the quilt shop - always never a chore going there and we rummaged around the fat quarter boxes and she chose the following colours.
Before the bag is put together you sew it all up like below.
Of course at this stage I hadn't realised that I'd sewn the leaf pattern upside down, it wasn't until AFTER quilting it I found that out. So out came the quick unpick - we are great friends - we have a love/hate relationship.
Anyway, moving on... ta da!
Leaves the right way up here :D
Here you can see the ratio here.
First bag I made. This one is a bit smaller and has long handles.
I did say at the beginning that I had trouble stopping...
And finally the last one I've made. The fabric was a Christmas present from More Than Fields of Wheat
So I made this pretty bag and below you can see inside.
A pocket for that elusive phone.
And finally, I'm done :) - Certainly has been fun making these bags.
