Roly Poly Tat Bags



I'm going to tell you a story - a true one.


A friend in the USA (Carolyn) told me she was going to send me some fabric to make her some bags and that anything left over I could have for myself.  VERY fair as to buy the sort of fabrics I've seen in the USA is impossible here in the UK unless you're very lucky to live near a good fabric shop.  Although we have a shop in the town it doesn't stock many fabrics and certainly not the sort of fun ones I'm forever looking for!!!

Anyway I got back from shopping the other day and there was this HUGE box in the hall waiting for me.  Inside was the most AMAZING selection of fabrics I've ever seen.  Talk about fabric heaven - I thought I'd died and gone there.

Anyway here are a few of the bags I've made for Carolyn.  Don't you just LOVE the top one covered in chocolate?  How very appropriate for tatters, eh?  (There's more of that print in the box too!!!).

The second one has shuttles all over it and the third - dog paw prints.  Hopefully I'll get the aged body to show you others of the huge selection over the next week or so.  There are some truly stonking great colours and patterns.

  1. what fun! - there are lots of fabric places here, and the new trend seems to be for the cute Japanese designs - but you can't tempt me, not for one second....waiting for my chickens to come - maybe Ridgetatter will succumb, though, and then I will feel virtuous!
    (and not being tempted is a moveable feast, after all, there's always NEXT month!)

  7. Ooh, that chocolate roly-poly bag makes my mouth water. The shuttle fabric is divine and I even love the paw prints! They are all fabulous and will surely fly off your Etsy shelves as fast as the shuttles do!

I beg your pardon? I didn't quite catch what you said.
