New Gift Bags

12 Jul

I used to make gift bags from fabric scraps we had laying around here and people gave me, like this. That is fine with me, but they weren’t selling very good, at least not very fast! :/ I then went off to JoAnns and bought me some fabrics that I thought looked a bit more stylish. ūüėČ Those aren’t selling that fast either. …

I did sell two of the pink polka dot ones!

¬†I can’t decide which is my favorite; I love them all!

This picture makes the brown & blue bags look really nice, I think! Wouldn’t that be fun to be having a party and line up all the bags like this!

What fun you could have¬†packing all your small things in pretty¬†pink bags to put in your suitcase! I forgot to take a picture of the suitcase¬†so these are just sitting here ready to go in. ūüôā

If you aren’t having a party or traveling you can use this lime green¬†drawstring¬†bag for a¬†cute purse on¬†your shopping trip!

The lavender stripe bag is perfect for storing little projects.

Handmade Bag Pictures

8 Jul

I got this bag done and here are the pictures. I put a zipper in the top so I can use it as a purse. That was a challenge. I actually let Mom do the sewing of the last part so I wouldn’t get so frustrated at my sewing machine. It has this habit of breaking thread lately.

I used the smaller option of the pattern Simplicity 2830. The outside, pockets, and handles are cotton.

For the lining I used a dark blue cotton. Plus inside I have a¬†stiff fabric (I’m not actually sure what it is). I didn’t use the stiffer fabric alone for the lining because it is old-fashioned bright yellow with green flowers! Next time I want to find my real canvas to use, because the yellow stuff still¬†isn’t quite¬†stiff enough.

The handles are just long enough to hang comfortably on my shoulder if I want to.

I have always preferred the smallest possible purses. ūüôā So this thing looks very big to me. Amazingly all my stuff fit in it though! This picture shows it stuffed full of stuff:

I got to use it already yesterday. I made my monthly visit to the hospital infusion¬†center¬†for my IVIG and my book actually fit inside my purse! So I didn’t have to take two or three bags in to hold all my stuff. It depends what I take though.

I used to think I would get lots of stuff done just sitting there for 4 hours. I usually never looked at most of the stuff I took along, so I quit taking it. I’m usually so sleepy from the Benadryl¬†I can’t concentrate and it doesn’t work to crochet with an IV in my hand! I didn’t even sleep yesterday, though. Probably because my book was so interesting! It is¬†also one of the saddest books I’ve ever read though.
