Personal Post – Fold Down Bag

This is one of those quick and easy projects. At a quilting retreat last fall someone had a bunch of those fabric sample books. I’m sure you know what I mean. Well, there were several fabrics that were quite heavy material, like upholstery fabrics. So one of those fabric samples and a bit of cotton fabric makes this cute fold down bag. These can be made in any size and out of any fabrics. If your fabric is not stiff enough you can easily add some iron on interfacing so it will stand up by itself. These are great catch-all bags to keep on the bathroom vanity or your dresser.  So cute!

Be well,

Wanda

Personal Post – Open Wide Bag

This bag pattern comes in 3 sizes. First I made the small size and even though it turned out really cute, it was kind of a pain to get it through the sewing machine.


Then I tried the large size.  Wow!  This  is  a large  bag.  And  honestly,  it’s  almost  too  big.  Is  that  even  possible?  I tried  to  use  it  as  a cosmetic  bag,  but  it  got  too  heavy.   I  might  use  it  as  a sewing  project  bag  or  a run  around  purse.  

I do think the medium size will be the perfect size to use as a cosmetic bag or toiletry bag or a purse. This pattern is interesting in the fact that the top zipper binding finishes the top edge and it makes a loop handle on one end. Pretty cool design. And I love the fact that it stands upright all the time and it opens wide enough so you can see everything inside. I can see me making several more of these for myself and maybe as gifts!

And then because I just can’t help myself, I made a smaller zipper bag with the scraps. I mean – what was I supposed to do with them?

Be well,

Wanda
