Well, the "Ladies Who Lunch" have struck again... but this time it is as the Bag Ladies!! Tonight I went to Rhonda's mom's quilting studio for a night of sewing. I came armed with some fabric, a sewing machine and enough pins to make a wedding dress. But, the projects were simple enough that I was able to complete TWO bags. It was so much fun, and don't worry Steve - I don't plan on starting yet another full-time hobby! But it did feel good to dust off my sewing machine!!!
The brown bag is from this pattern HERE. It was super simple, and I think I will make a bunch more of those as I find fabric. I cheated a bit and used wide grosgrain ribbon for my handles, but there is a simple handle pattern, too.
The little yellow bag basically used this pattern HERE, but I kind of just used that idea, rather than actually following a pattern... I just did what Cindy told me to do on that one! I am going to give it to Elise in the morning for her to use as a little purse... I think she'll like it!
Cindy cutting (she taught me how to use a rotary cutter tonight and she was so happy that I didn't cut off my fingers!!!) And Rhonda sewing...
Deana had her sweet baby girl along (I forgot to get a picture of her...) and even with feeding, rocking, diapering, and all that, she still managed to complete her bag. I loved her fabric.
Jill sewing up a storm!
And here are all the bags that got completed (and almost completed... Rhonda's, on the left side, just needs some handles!)
