Bag lady

I think I'm turning into a bit of a bag lady. For Xmas Dh bought me a couple of books from the internet (I'd directed him to them.) Over the last few weeks I've enjoyed playing and creating my interpretations of the bags.
This is the first I made, I love the long handle.

My second bag was a bit trial and error. I love the fabric which I bought by the
10cm as it was rather expensive.

I sent a photo to DD and the orders were put in from all her friends. (think I need a couple of weeks locked away to make them)

My latest handmade bag is nearly finished and is going to my dear friend who in a few weeks time will be a granny. I'm also making a quilt in the same farbic.

I've made the bag with a short and long handle, long for on the push chair and short for carrying.

When the quilt is finished I'll post a few photos.
Thanks for stopping by

Fab bags Debbie, I have a great book for making felted bags, that I'm itching to get started on. So many ideas, so little time! These are all gorgeous though, Judith xx

Love those bags Debbie. Are there no end to your talents? It's not that I couldn't do these things but I don't know where you find the time and I definitely haven't the patience these days.

I bet all the recipients are going to love these.
