More Bags

I did not stay up to ring in the new year last night. Does that mean I'm getting old? I woke up this morning (hangover free) and the new year was still here without my celebration.

So last night I worked on cutting out some more bags and getting them ready to put together today. I only worked on them for a couple hours this afternoon and got 4 put together. 3 of them will be heading off to the craft shop tomorrow. 1 went home with Sam because I wasn't happy with the way it was going and she was in the right place at the right time. I've got the bags down. I made them a little longer than the pattern called for because it gave me way less waste. 1 yard of fabric per bag, so with 2 contrasting fabrics, if I get one yard of each, I get 2 bags of each. Easy Peasy.

Red and blue stars, can't you just see yourself carrying this to a 4th festival?

How cute are these fish with the orange inside? I didn't get a good look at the fabric on the bolt, I thought it was just a random pattern. The fish were a pleasant surprise.

And of course, one more of the pink and green.

So the question that is burning in my head is... should I get a facebook? I hear it's the thing now.

I love them they are really cute. I like the fish one it would be cute to take to the beach.

You do have an eye for putting fabrics together. You should learn to quilt!

Everytime I log on, I wonder if you have given in yet.

Great bags!

these are awesome bags! I'm new at Facebook, but really not imressed - I mean, Blogger is waaaay more interesting than hearing what people are doing 24/7. But, that's just me, some people are total FB addicts.
