Apparently I've become obsessed with MAKING bags. :)
My sister "commissioned" me to make her some fabric produce bags a few weeks back, and she loved them so much she asked for more.
Here's a few pics of the final products:
|Reusable grocery bag, pattern based off a plastic grocery bag|
|I love that this folds/rolls up, throw a ponytail holder around it and it's compact and portable!|
|I wasn't very happy with this zipper, but it works for now. I've since come across some tutorials on how to better install zippers.|
|These are all made from leftover fat quarters, with some plain satin ribbon as the drawstring.|
|I just love the fabric designs I found!|
Then, I decided I wanted to make myself a small wallet/card holder. I "morphed" a few patterns into one and came up with this as the final design.
One of my next projects will be a t-shirt quilt made from all of the t-shirts my mom saved as I was growing up. These are some of my favorites. They are the camp shirts we made in Girl Scout Day Camp. Talk about a trip in the way-back machine.
PS: Is anyone reading this? If so, what would YOU like to see about my projects? I've kept it simple so far...but do you want "in progress" pics, more explanations of how I made the projects? Give me some input on how you think I can improve this blog! :)
