A bunch of bags
5 Attachment(s)
Back in May, a very senior friend ordered 3 bags--for Christmas! She has had some health issues lately and I think she wanted everything ready 'just in case'. Her instructions were very non-specific. 'You know what I like' was about it. I know that she loves scrappy, bright and different. And I love to play around with miniturizing traditional patterns. I wanted her to have a choice--not just 3 bags. So here they are. I wonder which ones she will choose. Thanks for looking.

Tough to choose; all fit the description of scrappy, bright and different. I will add fabulous too. https://cdn.quiltingboard.com/images/smilies/smile.png I bet she ends up taking all of them haha!

Ekuw took the words out of my mouth, she will love them all!

Me too ... she won't be able to decide, so will take them all!!!
Great Job ... GingerK!!!!

Out of of curiosity, do you put pockets on the inside?

Yes QuiltE, I always put a zippered pocket in the bag. I also add a magnetic closure at the top and reinforce the straps with 4 or 5 lines of stitching. I have also started putting dark fabric on the bottom of the bags. i think it keeps them looking cleaner. But they are all washable too.

Those are some awesome bags! How will she ever decide which to take?

I will have to find some energy somewhere. I love all of those bags! I must make one soon or at least complete one project!

https://cdn.quiltingboard.com/images/smilies/tongue.png I am with those who said its too hard to pick only 3 and that she will want them all! You are kind to give her choices.
Your bags are all so pretty. What stabilizer do you use? I like the smooth look of your bags.
