I saw a bag like this some where I am not sure where...

But I decided to make my own



I made the Appliqués with felt and reproduction calico prints.

The pocket is clear to insert a picture of your love!

It was my first time using wooden handles but it turned out cute, if you over look the fact that it is really deep. I know my best friend will love it though.

Thank you, It is hard to do Appliqués with a sewing machine. I usually use the widest zig zag stitch and the closest (tightest) stitch then I run the machine slowly to get the stitching to look even.

My philosophy for Appliqués is, when it looks like the patch on a Care Bear then I am done! Tongue

Your applique skills are great!  I have been wanting to put an owl on a purse for so long and you've inspired me to just do it!

i've never done appliques before, so i have a few questions. do you cut out your shapes first and then do the zig-zag around the edge? and then when you do zig-zag, do you just do the shape edge and the trim the left overs and THEN sew it to the bag or do you zig-zag it to the bag the first time?? thanks :-D

Oooh, such a good idea, and it looks so well made!
I hope you don't mind if I make a bag similar to yours (but mine won't turn out as good).

Heatherfish247 - I cut the shapes first the I stitch them up.


Ah what a lame guide...(that I made)

Anyway I use the stitch to overlap the edge of the appliques, so it covers all the raw edges of the appliques (it gives the appliques a neater, cleaner look!)

To assemble the bag I desgin the fabric with the appliques and all. Then I essemble the bag. In other words I sew the applique dirrectly to the outside layer of the bag. (I a simlar bag technique as the Jordy Bag uses) http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=32204.0
Good luck!
