Little Bags

I’ve made a couple more bags from the kits I bought from Quilt-A-Bag. The first is a cute little clasp purse.

The little bunnies on the outside are very cute. (The picture makes it look lopsided for some reason.) I’m so happy it turned out nicely. The last time I attempted this pattern I messed it up, partly because the twill fabric provided for the outside unravels terribly. But I took my time with this attempt, and used some Fray Check at a few different points.

Here is the interior fabric. I would love to get a hold of more of it. I think it would make a super cute box bag.

I also sewed up this snap pocket. It is meant to snap around a belt or apron string and provide you with an extra pocket.

It is made from “Japanese Canvas”, and the interior seams are bound with cotton tape. This fabric frays as well, and I had to be really careful with ripping out a mistake, but I am really pleased with the finish product. (Although it could stand to be ironed.)

I still have a couple more Quilt-A-Bag kits to finish up, but I am already getting excited about the spring Creativ Festival. I’m really hoping they will be there again, and that they will have some great new ideas. I may also pick up some of the pieces needed to make a few more the smaller “doctor bags”, since I think they will make nice gifts.
