Two more bags . . .

Found this pattern online -- Tiny Happy blog -- and decided to try it out, using a thrifted pillowcase and a piece of green calico for the lining. Because I thought it needed a little more body, I added a flannel interfacing. The front has a cellphone pocket.

And the back has an interesting pattern. Seams are up the middle (front and back) and at the top of the handles. Easy pattern -- size is good for a little library trip -- check out the tutorial here.

Second recently finished purse. I love this one! It's quilted on the outside and has a magnetic snap inside; the lining is blue and red floral, and the inside pocket is of the same fabric as the handles. The tutorial is on Creative Little Daisy blog -- patchwork purse here.

I do think this purse needs a little more -- either a few red buttons or a flower pin. I'm thinking a pin, made before next summer, when I'll want to use the purse to dress up my usual jeans and a teeshirt outfit.




More purses to come. CK, your tote is next. Then it's time for the custom purse for NL (you know who you are)!

WHOOPI!! A new post. Yes those bags are really cute. You are just the handy one with the sewing. Your bags look like bags, we won't talk about mine.

Thanks for visiting my blog and yes you are right---thrifting is so much fun. And if the truth be told I am at it again. While visiting my husband in the hospital I found a new thrift shop where prices are so low..yay...I picked a few things and will post them later. How bad am I?? MB

Your new bags are great! I really really want to sew bags. I'm not letting myself until I use up my apron only fabric stash. Ginette is beautiful! And so it Daisy!

Your bags are really cute! I love how the fabric is aligned in the green calico.
