I claim Gavagai for one yard of No. 5, bright shapes on white.

2 yards of lighthouses


93 inches of purple but it is only 35 inches wide


All FQs of Quilting cotton



2 yard angels 9 x 12 rows of Angels to give some idea of scale.

Hopefully, these pictures are better than the last ones. I retook them to make them more swap friendly.

214  Quilted esky bag four pics in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Sansa on: February 16, 2007 06:10:14 PM
Having recently made the swap fom plastic grocery bags to cloth, I have been seeing the insulated bags for frozen goods around. Despite their low cost, I decided to make one myself, hopefully a stronger one. I had some insulated wadding left over from a placemat/oven glove hit a few years ago so that is what started this, together with a few blocks left from a block swap.

I did the Chinese junk, but not the other one, I studied the cheap green enviro bags and made this one. It is twelve inches by twelve with an eight inch gusset. I already had the blue fabric and the grosgrain ribbon. Which is why some of it is black rather than blue. My main expense was the vinyl inner which I bought from eBay. I have a little left, but not enough to make another bag.









The zip was the hardest. My local small town store did not sell anything large enough so I thought I would use two smaller. Even then, I could not get two the same. It was very difficult getting the zip in at that angle, which I had never tried before. In the end, one of the corners ended up being handsewn as I gave up on the machine.



I have put all my enviro bags into it and it is in my car. I haven't tested it out yet, though, I hope it is sturdy enough.

215  Cream and Blue Floral with Wooden Handles in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Sansa on: February 09, 2007 04:51:24 PM
I borrowed an Indygo Junction book from the library and have been on a bag making binge. I have three more in production as well as this. Someone at my quilt guild donated fabric they didn't want anymore. This was a leftover piece of backed curtain material which I happened to have a hand dyed (not by me) piece of fabric which really went with it.

I live in a small town and no bag handles available here for me. I was sick of making fabric ones so I bought dowel, cut it and rounded the edges.

All my fabric is new. Store bought or from eBay but always listed as new. Non smoking household with no pets inside.

218  We have the technology. We can rebuild it. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Sansa on: February 05, 2007 05:33:16 AM
Or reincarnate it, or something. So, after showing my Mum my first few bags, she runs home and comes back with this.



A big stinky pile of old fabric in a plastic bag and some red fabric in another plastic bag. She had this bag years ago which she really loved. Anyway, it died and in her grief she took its dissected carcass to a fabric store and the lady there helped her buy enough fabric, trim etc to make one the same.

Now, my Mum can't hem something without it falling down within half an hour but she cut a few templates out of newspaper (way too big, I might add) but then panicked and put it away. She has tried unsuccessfully to get several people to do it but they all claimed that they had never made a bag ....

So, a day later.....the Million Hour Bag.



Closed at the top with a drawstring.




The trickiest bit. The bottom.




Haven't shown Mum yet, the highway is cut from flooding rains.

219  Reversible Sha Sha Purple and Butterflies in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Sansa on: February 02, 2007 03:28:50 PM
This was going to be for me but it is so tiny. I think I need something bigger. I might put it away for Christmas time. Which is a shame because I love, love, love the butterfly fabric.

I made it reversible since I couldn't decide which should be lining and which should be the outer. I use cut up cheap cutting boards for the base so it is waterproof. It makes it a bit harder to turn inside out but not too bad.

Finally got my pics up. This is the second one I did. No pics of the first. It was all pink inside but I ran out.
