Remember the Zero Landfil event I went to? I came home with a ton of upholstery fabric samples. I have planned to make mostly bags with them. I pulled out a few pieces in greenish, brownish color scheme.
This one has a big pocket here on the front. I was originally going to sew all four sides of both squares, just to use it as a giant square applique. But at the last second, I decided that the upper one would be a pocket. I added a button and a button loop.
This bag is for my friend, Jillian. I think she would like lots of pockets, so I added a pocket inside the bag, as well as on the other side of the bag.
A little birdie applique. The eye placement was a total coincidence. Isn't that perfect?!
Well, I put my garment making on hold to make a few bags as holiday gifts. Some of my friends are getting these market bags!
By the way, I am LOVING my improv bag.
It's perfect for my knitting project!! It's the perfect size. The bag goes everywhere with me. The more I use it, the more I'm loving it. The size, the weight, the design, the color, the whole thing. I'm very happy with it. Just the right thing!
Happy Sewing, everyone.
