    BAGS - BAGS - BAGS ALL kinds of bags - haven't made a single one that's quilted and pretty and has lots of pockets.

    Are you in the same bagless boat?

    Or

    Are you whipping them out faster than quilts and table runners?

    LOL, I have no desire to start yet another project. I've seen some beautiful ones especially from Jinny Beyer, but for right now I'm content to complete what has already been started. :-)

    I've made a few different patterns, but like Goldilocks, I have to keep trying until I find one that's just right. Too small, too big, not enough pockets, wrong size pockets, you name it. I really need to come up with my own pattern. Maybe one day when I've got nothing better to do. :) In the meantime, I mainly use my "buttercup" bag. I've made it a bit larger than the pattern, larger still, but not quite right. The pattern was free. Here's a link:

    wOW those were quick responses. At least you'll have a few gifts to use on the ones that 'aren't just right Goldilocks'.

    I'm so far behind in my sewing I doubt I'll ever catch up! :lol: A few years ago I made a Lazy Girl Design purse and recently bought a mini Bow Tucks pattern but haven't had a chance to try it yet.

    I'm in the bagless boat too. Having too much fun making quilts, wallhangings & doll quilts. Have one on my wish list though. My LQS has gone green & you get to put you name in a monthly drawing each time you make a purchase & use your own shopping bag. I thought it would be really cool to have a quilted shopping bag to use when I go buy quilting supplies.

    I haven't really had a desire to make any. I have enough tote bags for the whole city I live in!

    I love making bags and totes. One of the ladies at work calls me the bag lady.

    I have made some purses and totes. Some I gave away, some I sold. I don't carry any type of bag. Everything goes in my back pocket. :D

    I'm bagless at the moment but do have a Bow Tucks tote bag pettern on order from Quilt in a Day. Can't wait for it to get here - it's been 11 days already!

    Count me in the boat as well. I want so much to make a bag that I went through every magazine I own and tagged all the bag patterns trying to find just the right one. I thought for sure the Bow Tuck was "it" but have seen so many that I'm kinda turned off now. I know the right one for me is out there but I just haven't been motivated enough to start. It's still on the list of projects to do. One of these days.....
