    Another Bag Done

    I taught a class in our park using a Creative Thimbles pattern called Ursella or Emily. My sister-in-law had been wanting a bag with a bird embroidered on it so I hunted in my designs and found this one...sorry but I do not know where it came from...her bag is ready for delivery!

    I really like the bag you made for your sister-in-law. The bird is so happy looking. I also think using denim is very practical. I am sure it will be well received.

    She wanted denim but I don't think I will be making another denim bag anytime soon....it was stiff and heavy to get all the corners sewn and turned right side out...My hands still hurt today..m

    Beautiful bag! The bird is a very nice touch.

    I keep coming here and seeing things and thinking … Oh, I've been wanting to do on of those … This is another!

    Looks like you're having fun. I miss being a "snowbird" this year and sewing with the club in AZ this year. That is what your picture reminds me of. Great bag too. Little songbird is so cheery.

    I've had that pattern for about 5 years and can't decide what fabrics to use... Also, I'm a little intimidated by all the pattern pieces... I've made more than 150 quilts, and numerous totes and duffel bags, but purses still make me crazy. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Super bag. Is that a goldfinch that you embroidered? I love the color.

    I understand your sore fingers, done a few projects that did that to me, but that is why we sew, to try everything once, twice if we like it. She will carry that with pride for many years. I have a denim I had made for me years ago that is my go to bag for everything. *(too big for everyday, I just relized I have had it 29 years.)

    Very nicely done! It looks like a designer bag.

    Awesome bag, and I totally understand about the denim. I made a computer tote a few years back that I swore would be my last for the same reasons. Then my mother appropriated my bag. I did make another, only instead of stitching and turning inside out, I stitched it so the seams faced outward, and shredded them like a rag quilt. I liked it even more than the first one!
