Not another bag!!!!

Yep, here it is. Just finished this one today. I think that I'll finish the one that I have cut out and get back to some other projects that need to be finished, 2 quilts need binding, my challenge thingee needs to be finished, dolls are lined up. So get back on track but I love making the bags.

Another bag???!!

I finally completed this bag. It is free motion quilted to accent the big beautiful flowers. The lining is a wild orange stripe and it has 3 pockets inside. You see 2 views, It can be worn with or without the bow. I love the colors!!!

LeeAnn's bag

I guess that I never did post a picture of the bag that I made for LeeAnn. I thought that it was perfect to use on their trip to Hawaii. Here is another purse also. It is just fun to wear for happiness.

Another new bag

I guess that I should get back to my dolls and quilts but I'm loving making the bags!!! This one is made of home deck fabric, floral on the outside and plaid on the inside. It has lots of pockets and is embellished with a hand made flower made from vintage kimono silk and vintage buttons and beads as well as a fun fringe. I am getting a lot of practice on free motion quilting as I quilt these bags. They are so fun to make and everybody loves them!!!

Momma's got a brand new bag

I could hardly wait to get home to my sewing machine and studio!!! We spent a few days at a very nice casino in Temecula, CA and I took nothing but a book with me. Even with playing poker several hours a day I needed some thing to work on. So I came home and made another bag from Tanya's pattern. A good fix for sure. I have 3 more bags of various styles and sizes cut out.
But next on the table is my challenge project for our Embellishment group. You'll see it soon. It's partially done.

New bags, so much fun!!!!

Our quilt club just had Tanya Greb come and teach one of her original bags. Of course they are quilted. But so much fun to make!!! These are the 2 that I made. What a talented lady she is and fun, too. You may remember the red fringed bag from an earlier class and her original pattern also. Thank you, Tanya.

Sneak peek

Just finished another RR doll so it can go on its way to Canada. It is very different and soooo fun. I hope that the owner likes it when it finally gets home at the end of summer. What a trip this is! Remember how this doll arrived??
