Title: Some new bags I've made! (lotsa pics!)
Post by: wyrillco on July 09, 2011 09:13:49 PM
I'm sure y'all have seen the 241 Bag by Noodlehead (Anna Graham), and here are two I've made:




And two of my new bag, the Mary Jane bag:




And a test pattern:


I'd love feedback on the Mary Jane bag and the test one, if you see something you'd change!  :)

Thanks!  It's from Ikea, and I've been holding on to it for a long time, unsure what to do with it.  This was perfect!

The first one is my favourite too. I've pinned it! This rocks - beautiful bags, and I'm not usually a bag person!

I had never heard of the 241 bag, but I bought the pattern as soon as I saw yours! I love the fabrics you used on all of your bags. You really have an eye for mixing patterns and colors.

Thank you :)

This 241 Bag is fabulous.  I made 2 more today (one for me, finally!!) and will probably share more pics tomorrow.  I have 2 more to make tomorrow.  I've sold more of these bags than almost any other I make!  Crazy!  But it's a super well done pattern, and I just don't have enough good things to say about it!

LOVE them all!  Particularly the first one and the Mary Jane.  I've never been much on birds but the more popular they become the more they are growing on me!  I really like your fabric choices on those two.  I think your test pattern looks great!

Wow, the fabrics you chose are amazing!  I love all the bags you have made, they are so snazzy!

Thanks, y'all!  I think colors are the funnest (ha, is that a word?) part of this whole process for me!

These are ALL amazing.  I just bought the pattern also.  I am a novice and hope I can manage to make one of these.  Your fabric choices are fabulous.  I really like the last one's color scheme.

Great job!

I don't know that I'd change anything, but I love the main fabric of the test bag. You did a really good job coordinating the stripe fabric!

I really like your Mary Jane bags. One thing I do look for is pockets on the outside of the bag - deep enough to fit a water bottle. My daughter has ruined one (almost two) cell phones by keeping her water bottle inside the bag with the phone. A leaking water bottle is not your friend. :( Also I prefer darker fabrics. And I love that you use canvas and other thick fabrics. My daughter loves to carry school/library books and a ton of other things around. Do you sell these?

ALL of these are lovely!!  I adore every one of the fabric patterns and the bag styles :)  I may have to go out and buy the pattern as well.  Great job!

how big is the 241 bag? can I use it as a diaper bag? love the first bag, I have some of that Ikea fabric!

I love ALL your bags!  ;D I have the pattern for the first bag 241 and it's great. The Mary Jane Bag it 's a pattern?
I like it!

It's pretty roomy.  However, I'd want lots of pockets on the inside if I was going to use it as a diaper bag.  The other thing you could do is enlarge the pattern, and it would be great!

Great bags.  Nice design.

I absolutely love that bird fabric! It's just so perfect, the way you cut it for that front piece!

Now, since you asked, both the Mary Jane and the test are both so SQUARE. I personally don't like square bags... I make rectangular ones... At least the width is longer than the height... or ones with rounded edges. I'm sure other people like square, but this is just feedback in case it'll help you garner more sales (I'm assuming you sell them!) if you usually make more square shaped bags. Hope I helped...
