    Cool Who said something about addictive???!!!

    😁😁😁 yes, here are a few more of my bags and there’ll be plenty more to come and just so I don’t run out of fabric, I bought a bit more 😂😂😂😂, just to make sure!!! It was on special and I had the feeling it was very sad because it wasn’t getting enough attention 😆😆😆
    The first bag is for my darling DIL, the next ones for friends and the last 3 were made out of pillow cases (the last 2 aren’t lined) also I had to get my brain wired a little differently for a bit so tried another folded hot pad 😉 Thanks for looking ♥️♥️♥️ and you all have an awesome week 🤩🤩🤩

    You have been busy. As we get closer to phasing out plastic bags, retailers will need all of us to have a good supply of our own bags. Can see the need for those!

    Wow, you’ve cranked out quite a few and certainly seem to be enjoying the bag patterns. I especially like the reversible totes...
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Wow! Amazing work. Glad you didn't leave any fabric behind that would feel neglected!

    Yes, it tends to get quite heavy as I sew the fabric straight onto a piece of padded scrap (mattress protector I use as wadding on quilts) so I’ve never tried to sew it onto just a piece of fabric to see how heavy this would make it. I might give it a try to use as a front piece of a bag 😁

    They’ve been banned here since last July and what an uproar it was 🤢🤢🤢 so it was just such a good idea to get into making shopping bags for family and friends 😍😍😍

    Sue, it's funny you saying that as a friend from church calls me that too I have been sewing bags before doing quilts and then stopped until Queensland had the good idea to ban plastic bags last Juli, so in between quilts I make bags. It's also been so hot here those past months that I just didn't feel up to tackle a big job (quilt) so the bags don't take long and it's quite relaxing
    Those are some bags I used to make with upholstery fabric to which I added either beads or golden decorations

    Great bags.

    I must remember your excuse to buy more fabric.....It was on special and I had the feeling it was very sad because it wasn’t getting enough attention


    That is the best one I have heard about so far.
