I have done a little bit of sewing...

After suffering a migraine foe a day or two I sat at the machine.
Our quilt group has decided that the gift this year for KRIS KRINGLE is to be a cute little bag. It can be done in any colour and embellished any way.
Years ago I made a coffee cup bag using this fun technique so thought I'd give it another go.
There is a bit of cutting and sewing involved but it's worked out great.
 And here is the finished bag.
The pocket adds a little bit extra. This wasn't in the pattern but I thought I'd put one in.

And look at the fun fabric.. A sewers life..

There are a great deal of patterns offered for free. Pop on over to have a look and hopefully make something..


  1. Lovely texture and colour in that pocket panel!

  2. Looks fantastic... Looks like its tricky to make.

  3. Looks great. Had a lady in at work today who had a t shirt on that looked a bit like this.Did say to her it would make a good quilt!

  4. That looks wonderful Jo, love the ticky looking pocket.
