Bag Lady

It's been a bit difficult to get stuck into anything big the last few weeks with all the 'comings and goings' in our lives at present, and the result is the appearance of a number of small items!

Firstly, a tote, using Moda's 'Sonnet' collection charm pack

complete with 2 LARGE inside pockets!

The original Penny Surges pattern ( gift from my friend Jeannie - no blog, but thank you Jeannie! ) has an envelope pocket on the front but the fabrics are so lovely, it's a pity to cover them up - so no outside pocket on this one!!

Then, a trial run of Rachel's tutorial for the Friendship Bag Swap, made from a few left over 'Sonnet' charms

This was just so much fun and turned out so cute I couldn't resists making another one

Made from some of the selvages I've been saving (don't ask!!) , bright and cheerful and just the right thing to fill with sweeties - a little extra gift for DGD's birthday on 28 August !!

Forgot to post this yesterday (!!) and just cannot persuade Blogger to let me change the date - Must be some secret I'm not aware of !!

I love your little bags and I think I should do a salvage one too as I've been collecting them.
Too adorable!
