this is my first post to craftster.. what a fun community!!
i didn't use any pattern for these bags, just kind of sewed them up however Wink but i was anxious to get to my favorite part, the applique! felt is best for applique because it is does not fray or unravel, so you don't need to tuck the seam under. i used a vintage wool felt for the applique. the navy bag is felt, and a wonderful vintage brushed cotton for the light blue bag.

whew, machine applique using a normal sewing machine (and not embroidery machine) is tough work! but i am very happy with the way they turned out. perhaps i will try hand stitching next time. i just hate picking my fingers with the needle! :\








the light blue one is a little dirty. i took er on a wild night out Smiley

They didn't agree on much. In fact they rarely agreed on anything. They fought all the time and they challenged each other everyday. But in spite of their differences they had one important thing in common. They were crazy about each other.

Awesome bags!!!

Do you have to wash the felt first?  I have always been wary of doing this.  The appliques are so nice, so professional!
