    I know many of us have been bitten by the bag bug. How many are now using them? I know I have. I'm currently using the Margo by Lazy girl designs.

    I'd love to make the birdie sling bag by Amy Butler. I purchased the fabrics for it already. All I need is time.

    Of course, I also have purchased most of the tote kits from
    Connecting Threads, too.

    I have a lot of totes to make.

    This bag bug is sooooo dangerous!

    I have a pattern for a tote kitted up and waiting for me to do after I have finished the top I am making. I am really looking forward to doing it and using it!

    Hugs

    So far I have resisted buying purse, bag and tote patterns. I have plenty of quilts I want to do first. Howerver, with the variety of patterns out now, it's getting harder not to give in! LOL

    I don't have any of the tote, bag or purse patterns, but did have a board member, klnsmith make me a Bow Tucks purse that I dearly love & USE everyday!!! She does excellent work and I highly recommend having her make you one if you don't want to attempt to do one yourself.

    I made the Rumbleford bag for Christmas gifts this past year I LOVE mine and use it all the time. I will probably make another one for myself it's great for taking to quilt classes or to go fabric shopping with not to mention for a weekend getaway

    I like the little shoulder bags that are just big enough for 2 or 3 cards, money, cell phone, keys. Nancy Zieman's show that is on here in Oklahoma last week was on serging some small shoulder bags. I have already may 5 of them for myself and my 2 daughters. Love them.

    I've made the Professional Tote by Creative Thimble, the "As You Like It" purse by the same, and the Quilter's wallet.

    It sure is....I have several patterns, but have made only about 3 of them. The Bow Tuck being the favorite. I also have just been making some up as I go and that is fun too.

    I love making bags and totes. I plan on making a bag for each one of my 4 sisters, I know they will appreciate them.
