bags!

i finally got my long-awaited weekend sewing from the library. too much loveliness for one weekend. though other projects pulled me, i couldn't get my mind off the little zippered bag. i needed such a bag. and the zipper was truly tantalizing after seeing some others' work with them. plus, i had this fabric from maryellen that was just begging me to become this bag.


the adorable lining is made from the fabric below, which i used a bit of to stitch up a little hair-band bag to go in my massive bathroom bag (measuring issues there). i think i basically followed the drawstring bag instructions from linen, cotton, wool. (it's on hold at the library again!)

i actually cut enough material for another zipper-bag. it has yet to hit the ironing board & sewing machine, but it is ready to go! like it?

The bag is cute! After waiting several months to get Weekend Sewing from the library, it spent the entire 3 weeks under a pile of clean laundry in my sunroom...then had to go back because six more people had it on hold...oops.

I was just looking at the cosmetic bag this afternoon and thinking I should make it

Aaahhhh....I'm so happy you were able to use the fabrics! I think I can hear them singing "free at last, free at last!" after being imprisoned for years in my fabric bins! The bags are adorable, Kendra!

Yeah!
