Here a Bag. There a Bag.

A few weeks ago I made these bags by request.  I became addicted to them.  They are large flat bags with batting and lining.  The top is folded over so the lining shows for the accent.  Both fabrics are used on the handles and there is a little pocket inside.  It was fun to match the fabrics and then to find different ways to quilt each one.  A few have wavy lines, one is meandering. One has veins quilted on the leaves.  The black and white one has white buttons; the smokey one has glass beads and glittery floss flowers. The reddish one has white french knots. 
There were scraps leftover so they became tissue holders and zipper bags.  What else could I do?!
The bags have gone to their new homes but, in between making quilts, I keep making bags.  I can't help it.
I have two more finished and a few more in progress.
Yep, I'm a bag lady.

I'm a bag lady too! It's nice to make a useful project that doesn't take too much time or too much fabric. Great, useful gifts. Love all the different fabrics!
