More on this after the show this weekend, but how fun was it to turn two quilts into this messenger bag:
These quilts always kind of reminded me of oversized potholders, anyway. It’s two same-sized quilts, one with a pocket sewn on the inside, with a single strip of fabric stitched as the sides/bottom/strap. Side two:
Also finished these bags today:
Now everything needs priced before tomorrow!
Will show you the lovely Japanese bag that was the inspiration for the construction method on the messenger bag next week.
Great idea for bags…love your stuff…Julierose
really like these bags Dee, and what a good and useful way to use quilts, I’m inspired!! looking forward to next week’s tuition.
Hope it goes well! I love your bags, especially the stripped one.
What a great idea, using those small quilts–form into function! I just realized we’re neighbors, of sorts–NH and MA.
