The right side!


Here are the right sides of the projects I showed you yesterday!!! 

For those who know me (and some of you guessed yesterday) you'll probably have realised by now that these are going to be 'scrap bags'. All the leftovers from the squared away bags didn't get thrown away - they're currently being re-cycled into this project.

I've just looked it up and it's three years since I last made similar bags - they're shopping or tote bag sized.  In fact you can see the series that I made here.

Now, one of those bags I kept for myself and that one has been used almost everyday of it's life. It's my 'take into town' bag - and I go there most days. It's still looking really good and doesn't need replacing (it's just had another 'bath' courtesy of the washing machine) but I MAY well keep one of these two new ones as Etsy isn't doing very well with the square bags. Perhaps it's time to retire from being a 'bag lady'. 

Now, who said I'm no lady, I heard you. Bet it was Pigmini!!!.  Most folk who know me will tell you that I'm no lady - I'm an old git and proud of it!!!

  1. It would be a shame to waste an inch of those beautiful fabrics, this is an excellent way of using them up!

  2. Your series is so cute & cheerful ! And love the central circle with tatting, along with the decorative stitches ; together they lift the quilting to another level :-)

  4. I'd love to buy another one, but our $ is way too low at the moment to do any online shopping at all! Which is very sad.

  6. I really love the 'scrap bag' you gave me, but because I don't want it to wear out I am very careful how and when I use it!
