Hi all,

I've been a bit slack with coming in here lately, but have had a busy few weeks....BUT still managed to find time to whip up a couple of bags....let me know what you think.

The first is a little set I made for one of my teachers (sewing believe it or not!) and it's only my third attempt at patchwork, but kind of designed the pattern as I went.



The next is a series of pics of a bag I did for someone in a bag swap (in a Yahoo group that I'm a member of).  It was a swap of a different kind, in that we sent the person our own fabric...and we all used the same pattern.  It's interesting to see how we've all made changes to the finished item to individualise it.  It's safe to post pics now, as she's received her bag.






And lastly, a friend of mine snuck a birthday in, and I just HAD (smiles) to make her a bag.  I made a tissue holder and wallet to match, but forgot to take pics of them!  Anyhoo, here's two pics of the bag.




I'll accept any comments, good, bad or ugly.  Oh, and please excuse the messy work area...but I'm a self proclaimed grot!

Hugs and happy sewing

The bags look fab! Great job  Smiley

Love the shape you used for the patchwork bag, works great with the design.  The matching keyfob, wallet and tissue holders are adorable!

These are all cute. I like the idea of that swap - I've never done one, doing one the way you guys did it sounds very interesting.

Those bags are all completely adorable. I love the patchwork design and shape of the first bag, though. It's very unique!

I like the fabric of the third bag...so cute!  The first one is cool, too.  I've seen that style somewhere online...great job on accomplishing the patchwork w/o a pattern!

Thank you all so much for your comments.  Yes the swap was fun (and it was my first sewing one, I've done a beading one in the past though) however, let me tell you, it was nerve-wracking for me as I was petrified the whole time of stuffing it up and not having access to more material if I did!  I managed to do it without having to email her and ask where she got it from so I could purchase more to finish her bag!

Hugs N Happy sewing

Marvelous bags (& sets! soooo cute!)  I love your work!

By the way...what is a grot?! (My sewing area gets really messy when I'm sewing!)  I'm a Texan, so have no idea what a grot is!

Thanks for sharing!

Hmmmm, having been to Houston a couple of times, I'm thinking a name you'd associate with "grot" would be dingy! lol  It means I'm a messy person....which is a bit of an oxy-moron as I can be quite a perfectionist at times...so it's quite opposite!  Maybe I'm just setting myself up for the funny farm one day too!  Hope that has cleared it up for you, as I think I've confused myself!

Hugs

All 3 bags are nice, but I especially love the pretty pink fabric. Smiley

I really love the shape of the first bag, very different. Great job on all 3 of them.
