Thought you might like to see a few more bags I have made;this one was in a magazine a few years ago, Homespun I think, the little angel doll was quite fiddly to make but she is so sweet and the bag is a handy size....

It is a Rosie Quinlan design.... it would make up quickly with the jelly rolls we have these days, I used the old fashioned method of cutting individual strips.... well worth the effort.

The fabric for this bag I bought at Mandeni (beautiful embroidery shop) just out of Merimbula, NSW again quite a few years ago, this shop is well worth a visit, it has a great range of threads, patterns, cross-stitches, tapestry etc. and in the toilet there are gorgeous cross-stitches of native flowers that I loved...

its a good large size bag with lots of pockets too....

This is my Sunday bag a great size for going to workshops

This is my gorgeous Cinderberry stitches bag, it was fun to make with the embroidery and yo yos....

This was a bag I made just because I liked the fabrics and the design I think it was a Butterick pattern...

My dear friend gave me this last Christmas 07 so I could take my sewing on the boat and it wouldn't get wet, she doesn't realise you don't get wet on our boat unless you choose to....LOL... this is the same friend who tells me you need a bag for every UFO.. so thats a lot of bags for me... hehe...

Hmmm I wonder whats in this bag... another post I will show you... ps I love the apple fabric these bags are made from.....

This is one of my favourite bags... the small Bow bag, I use it all the time when I go out, just the right size for keys, phone,hanky and wallet.... I get lots of comments on it

This bag another girl friend made for me again to take on the boat and to the beach... she does lots of machine embroidery hence the cool lady on the front and the back.....

She chose my favourite colours....

Don't you just love the plaited handles.....

And lastly this little bag is for taking to craft shows, just enough room for phone, keys and cards very handy, haven't tested it out yet.... plan to use it when I go to craft show in February in Melbourne....
