1  Grommet bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kellygee on: October 11, 2009 03:32:48 PM
Gosh!!   I haven't made a bag in such a long time!!  This is one I whipped up today.  It's basically a jordy bag, inspired by this pattern that I saw stitched up at my local quilt shop.  The fabrics are from Hobby Lobby.

2  Flight of the Conchords bag for Sis! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kellygee on: April 29, 2009 05:04:27 PM





So, I made this bag for my sister (she's a big fan!).  The bag itself is a mash-up; dash of this, pinch of Buttercup!  I actually used the pattern piece for the lining of the Buttercup for the body of the bag.  The embroidery pattern for Brett & Jemaine is here.

I haven't given it to her yet, but, I'm pretty sure she's gonna love it!

3  Buttercup! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kellygee on: April 23, 2009 09:35:23 AM



I am really lovin' this pattern!  Thanks to Rae for sharing her wonderful pattern!


I did enlarge the pattern by 125%, and I used fusible Peltex to give it some body.  What a mistake that was!  It gives the bag some nice stability, but, I could never quite press all the wrinkles out and the pleating nearly killed me!

4  Over the Top Bag with kanzashi flower pin in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kellygee on: February 06, 2009 09:47:29 AM


So, I've seen this bag here and there over the last couple of months.  But, it wasn't until a gal I work with pointed out this contest (from the most recent issue of Quilts and More) that I finally decided to give it a go.

It's my first go at it, so it's a little rough around the edges.  Next time I'll probably use a more hefty interfacing.  I also machine stitched the handle into the bottom seam, instead of the hand stitching that the instructions recommend.  I don't hand stitch unless absolutely necessary!  Wink  I had a little trouble top-stitching the handle to the body of the bag, just the mechanics of fabric vs. machine.  It's not as flat as I'd like at the bottom seam.

Overall, a super-cute little bag and super-easy to put together.  Only took about 2 hours.

The flower was made following this tutorial, with this video for additional help with the petal folding.
