    Hello quilters.

    I sure have enjoyed looking at all the photos of your projects. Wanted to share our latest bag. It's a big 'un. Measures about 18X15X9 and is made from charms--very simple quilting. The funny thing is that it's for our niece who is about 4'11" and she probably does not weigh more than 95 pounds. She'll use it to take her projects and FW to sewing classes. That's my DH's arm in the pic :)

    Please keep sharing your photos. I just love the Bow Tucks so many of you are making right now.

    Thanks,
    Mary

    And this is the bag that DH sprung on you, on the weekend? :)

    Nicely done .... and tell DH we'd like to see what's on the end of that arm!

    With a girl that small and a bag that big .... she could live in it! :)

    I think I want to live where you live. Such a beautiful back drop for photo's. Looks warm too. We got up to about 58 degrees today. Salt lake City. Love the bag too.

    Hi SueBee,

    No patter needed. Sew 46 charms into an oblong box, batt, quilt, line, add pockets, throw on handles and use 2 magnetic closures (front to back and side to side) and you're done.

    Hi QuiltE,

    Yes, this is the bag Paul told me about on Saturday. I tried to get him to let me take his photo but he said his hair was not combed.

    And I agree, that little bitty girl could live in that thing. he he

    Hi Diane,

    There is no pattern. Just start sewing charms into an oblong box. Then line as usual. Have fun!
