Lately, I've been making bags; mostly for wrapping Christmas presents but also for my own use. My favorite so far included a zipper pocket and the application of a snap. Yea! Here are some of the pictures: (click on picture to open whole post.)
This pattern is the Madeleine Bag by Imagine Gnats complete with excellent tutorials on snaps and zipper applications.
Here's the other side and (below) the snap and the cell phone pocket.
The zipper is my first and was much easier than I anticipated.
I used a few 4 pieces of a Rowan Fat Quarter collection which will also show up in a Flying Geese quilt -- one day.
This little bag was made last spring and was my first handbag. It is called a Dresden Purse and was made using Jenny Doan's YouTube video tutorial.
I made it a little smaller than the tutorial but it is still roomy and easy to load and go.
That's all for today. Thanks for looking and here's picture of one of my sewing partners:
