I'm so excited, I was invited to post my bags on the Bagaholics Anonymous blog. I frequently visit the blog and admire all the beautiful bags. It's a great source of inspiration. Take a peek.
Joe was out Geocaching yesterday which gave me some uninterrupted crafty time. I made two bags while he and the dogs were gone. Both from the same pattern. It's a pattern that I've almost perfected which is basically a combination of tutorials and tips that I've found posted online.
I'm still not happy with the angle of the handles, and unfortunatley, it wasn't until they were all done that I realized how I could have made them better....next time.
The first bag is made from an embroidered fabric (it feels kind of lineny) with a plain black lining. In the past I've used heavy duty interfacing on the outside of the bag only (don't forget, I'm still a newbie at this). This is the first bag I've made using the interfacing on the lining and pocket as well. What a difference!! I love the sturdiness!
I ordered this Amy Butler fabric on Ebay and it arrived on Friday. I wish there was a Canadian source for Amy Butler stuff. Anyhoo...I needed a "back to school" bag, so this is it!
This is my third attempt at fabric flowers. I've almost got the hang of it.
I've hot glued a pinback to the flower so that it's removeable.
