Bag Ladies Strike Again!


Last night was another bag night... and today I'm bagged!! haha! (so tired that I am making bad jokes). But so worth it because I completed 3 bags.

First I made Todd's piano book bag. He picked this fabric, out of 3 choices. He said he liked the guitars!



Then I made Scott's piano book bag out of his fabric of choice... and it is reversible, so the black fabric can be the outside whenever he decides to change his mind! I had originally thought of just using the black fabric to make a bag for Elise, but since she is probably 2 years away from music lessons, and she got a purse last time the Bag Ladies got together, I thought I could use the fabric for something else.

Plenty of room for his music books and binder.

After the second bag was done, I was going to pack up, but I guess I got my second wind because I made one more bag... it is a 4 patch bag and I saw one that Cindy had, and I loved it... mine is bigger than hers. I wanted to use the leftover music note fabric and make a music book bag for myself, because I am going to take guitar lessons again in the Fall, and I wanted a new bag for my music.

So here it is, the way I will use it....


Close up of the fabric...

And the inside... it is a reversible bag, but I will probably just keep this as the inside. It is made out of a pair of my old jeans! I really wanted to finish my bag, and since I didn't have any lining, or more coordinating fabric, I thought I would use this. Only, it made the bag really thick because I put batting in it, too... maybe with the jeans I didn't need to use batting, but it sure is a nice firm bag! I put this pocket on the inside, it has 3 compartments. 2 that are as tall as the pocket and divided in the middle, and one long one that is only half as tall as the pocket, but is hard to see... I put some Velcro in the centre of it, and will store pencils in there.

LOVE IT! the denim inside is awesome; love the seam under the pocket. you did great!

and if you do it again like that, i wouldn't put batting in it next time

Thanks, Rhonda... it was late (REALLY late!) and I was following my teacher's instructions :) But I should have left the batting out, for sure! It didn't need it at all with the jeans inside! But I love how it turned out!

I love this bag!! I was wondering what you were going to do with your old jeans... great idea. You are sew creative.

Thanks again for having us over... it was lots of fun!! (even if I didn't complete my bag)

It looks like you had a great night and were all very productive. I'm sorry I couldn't make it but if you do another one, let me know and I'd love to come!
