I Made A Bag

This bag was not the easiest thing I've ever made. I like it, but seems like it would be wrong to use it for the chance of it getting dirty. Hmmmm, love/hate with bags. There are so many cute ones out there, but not all are functional and what if it needs to be washed! They never look as nice after a washing. Last week while married/no more college/no more internship girl was home, she sewed up two bags that you can view on her blog. They are cute bags...covered buttons are fun to make and use. Her bag fabrics are by Amy Butler.





Ok onto other things now. Quilt group is next week. I need to get going on the past two friendship blocks we've done. I'm behind. When completed I'll show those here, if I remember to take a pic. I'm planning to start a "quilt along". This nice person has two to choose from. Deciding what fabrics to go with is tough. I've been peeking at quilt market pictures on everyone's blogs. Would have liked to go. But then there is always something/someplace I'd like to be going to: i.e. quilt shop hops, quilt shows, quilts walks,women's programs, etc. If I did all of that, I wouldn't be able to be a wife, teachers aid, mother of the bride, mom of a thirteen year old stinker, blogger, and a 'caring for others' person.
Take Care~~

I like how your bag turned out. And I think you should use it, don't worry if it gets a bit dirty. Oh, and someday we WILL go to quilt market, I'll start working on getting some conections...

I checked out the quilt market pictures. I think I will be able to go with you and Nancy. It looks like I could find the bag of my dreams and some cute girl dresses. Can you get them there or do ya gotta sew 'em yerself? Your bag is cute. Love, Karen

I have that same love/hate with the bags - to use them, to not to use them. Because I get stuff dirty! PamKittyMorning made me an ADORABLE bag for market, which I used the heck out of. Now I think I'll hang in some place of honor and just look at it every day.

I love the bag you made (and "easy" really sold me). So stinkin' cute!

Very cute bag! I'm bagophobic so I don't make them. LOL

I tend to have a love/hate thing with bags too. I haven't had one turn out quite right yet. I'm still trying though.
