Awww, you make me blush...see I told you they were addicting LOL 
Ok so I can inspire you with a simple rag bag and you inspire me with your pursettes, aprons (I have 2 killer ones, a craft one that is to DIE for and one to wear in the kitchen that I LOVE LOVE LOVE), booty bags, and I can't forget your snow monster who sits on the shelf in my sewing room and keeps me cool when the seam ripper and the not so pleasant words come out LOL
aaaagggg  and  the  true  master at work.  great  job on  all.  now the  ladies see  why  you  inspire me!

Yes shorty3boys I clip the exposed seams prior to washing, this will help add fray to the frayed edge.  Keep in mind this is a PAIN IN THE BUTT!  I have special scissors to help with this they do not have regular scissor handles (with the hole to put your fingers into) they have a "straight" handle and you hold them like you would hold a pair of pliers if that makes sense. Feel free to ask if it doesn't make sense.

Love the bags, everyone of them is so cool. I have a bunch of new fabric and old that would work so great together. Thanks for the tutorial and the inspiration.

Thanks for posting pictures. The apron is almost to pretty to use. The craft apron is great. I need one of those,I never remember where I leave my stuff while sewing. The monster is cute and your pursett looks really nice.

hi, I love your John Deere purse too cute .My only question is that your purses look a bit more thicker more like a quilt than the instruction given,Did you use something different in between your lining and the front pieces other than low loft batting or interfacing??thanks again love the purses all very cute.,

Thanks for posting the directions - that's a really fun bag and the best part is you don't have to worry about turning it when you're done!

I also really like the craft apron - why haven't I thought of that before? I lose my scissors and pins all the time when I'm sewing.

ok  sorry I haven't responded and thanks for all the great comments.  yes Chrissiemaggs  adds the extra thickness and it gives it that extra  something.  I  think she uses batting but not 100% sure.   you could use fleece I would guess. you jsut sut it a bit smallet that the sguares and sandwhich it all together before you sew the pieces together.

I belive chrissiemaggs sandwhiches each square (theres teh quilters X on them)  then does each square  as outside, padding and lining as all one piece.   then you are making the sides and front and back and handles and just placing it all together.   
If anyone wants I can attempt  a tute that way this summer. (I will need at least a month if not more got too much on the plate now)
