In the Bag....
Well tote bags more like it. I have so far made three. One is hiding in the back. Cannot show it now.
After the bag is received will post. Will say it is a fun one!

So on to the two I can chat about!! I do not use patterns. Just use simple bag making technique. By using assorted fabrics, handles, batting with quilting, interfacing and Pellon products they are all different.
From soft to firm and large to medium size. Each has magnetic closure to snap shut!
This pink one is for a cute little gal as an over night bag. This is Amy Butler fabrics.

Inside is nice and roomy. It is made to be tossed in washer and dryer if needed.
Love that big rick rack on the roomy pockets all way round! Have a few things to add inside before it is gifted.
Next one up is a Red Hat Lady bag! Just too darn cute!! Nice and sturdy keep it's shape bag.
Inside bright and cheery purple swirls to help see stuff near bottom. The pleated pockets can hold water bottles.
Cute shaped pockets with sweet rick rack on each side. Think the polka dotted fabric used for handles keeps it fun looking!
Another gift ready to be given! Do hope it is enjoyed as much as it was fun for me to create!

So best get to the cutting out of next project on list.
My list is long but I am crossing items off in a timely fashion!

We did get more rain. Was needed. Forgot to set my fern baskets out to get soaked though.
DH managed to get the grass cut finally Sunday after it dried off some.

The hummers are here again! I have two new pretty feeders and they will work me hard keeping them filled. Cats are so funny trying to keep up watching the little busy birds. Will try to get a pic of that one day.

Finished home chores all but some ironing.
May save that for tomorrow early AM so I can get busy in sewing room!;-)
