Bags I Made
This is the first bag I made. I created my own pattern based on what I had in my head. I wanted something for work that I could carry my lunch bag in...so I didn't have to look at the ugly insulated lunch bag. It's made of wool boucle on the outside and cotton on the inside.
This bag I made from vintage fabric that I purchased on ebay. I was a little disappointed when I got it in the mail because it was a knit fabric and it was much more pink than I thought it was going to be. I didn't like the bag when I first finished it but it has grown on me. For now I keep all my extra knitting supplies in it.
This is my favorite bag by far. I also made this pattern myself. The idea was based off a vintage bag that I had. It was also the first time that I used VERY stiff and thick interfacing. It is made of cotton denim on the outside and white cotton on the inside. Right now I'm using it to hold my knitting project.
This is my second favorite. Another original. I am currently using it to hold my mini ipod and ipod charger cord.
This bag I made for my friend Bob's wedding. I was a bridesmaid and the wedding was in fall colors. Our dresses were brown. I have had this fabric for a long time. It is some kind of silk. I LOVE the pattern on it but could never think of what to make with it that was worthy of how fabulous it was.
