Big Carry Bag

My weekly group The Sewing Sisters Had a Bag Day Last week. Most of us started making this Lovely big zippered carry bag. I finished mine  today. The fabric is Barefoot Roses by Tanya Whelan for Grand Revival. Again it is the same range of the quilt I am doing, I just love it and its taken me a long time to actually cut into it.!

It's oh so Shabby Chic , My favourite colours and style.IMG_2737 The zipper I used is 22 inch so that will give you some idea of size Its a pattern by Cindy taylor - Oates Easy to make Totes with zippers.

IMG_2735 It Has a Pocket on the side and one on the end, I think the next one I will use a firmer wadding. A nice bag to take a quilt in, when you go off on retreat.


IMG_2693 These are the blocks from Zu Zu's Petals quilt , Just need to join them together and decide on the borders. It is supposed to have a row of the little half square triangle right around but I don't think i have enough of the fabrics to do that.  Will have to think about it.

Love the fabrics and the bag, gee we miss out on a lot living so far away. Your idea for the lap top bag is fantastic I will try to make one for myself. I have so much on at the moment I don't know what to do when. I am going back to cross stitch as well just to slow myself down, I have missed doing it.
Love from one of your Sewing Sisters
