I think I've shown you the tote bags I've been making the last couple of years or so.

Well, I bought a couple more bag patterns! One is a "purse" style bag, and the other is a small bag called a "runaround" bag.

All I need to make these bags are 3 one yard pieces of fabric. The exception is the tote bag, which I line with lining fabric.

This set is for my daughter Lisa. She picked out the fabrics and told me how she wanted the fabrics layed out. Of course, we always differ on fabric prints and colors, and how to lay it out.

So, if you don't see anything scrappy from me for awhile, I'm sewing, having fun making bags!!

Oh aren't they pretty! I want to make something like that for my Silhouette, with a space for the leads and the mats. I won't though!

At Christmas, with family, Lisa was using one of the new bags that I made and someone asked if it was a Vera Bradley bag. I had no idea what they were talking about! I just said, no I made it.

I'll be going tomorrow to the Vera Outlet sale. After shelling out a terrific amount of money, discounted, I'd rather pay you for those. Very cute!!

Claudia, thanks for the link! There are some really awesome bag patterns! Not that I don't already own enough of my own.

Of all the patterns I have, these are the ones I have the most fun making. And I'm always looking for more patterns. I buy when one catches my eye...

BTW, I don't normally sell my bags. Most of them I make and give away as gifts or donations.

I know what you mean about selling - it puts a whole set of expectations on doing something you love and somewhere along the way it turns into work!

Exactly!! I like doing things like this on my own time. My cleaning lady had been "ordering" bags for her friends and relatives, but she LOVES baking, so we exchange. And it's always no hurry, whenever you have time. So I'm not pressured into getting anything done in a certain amount of time.

And I do love having extras made ahead of time in case I need a quick gift. Every now and then I do make some for gifts for special people in my life....

Good for you!!

I dabble in sewing and know how hard that is to make on demand. Wish I had your capability to say no.
