I’ve heard folks say they just can’t carry a cloth bag. I know, WHAT?!
All the versatility, fun & not to mention customizability (that’s a word, right?)
I decided that after a few weeks of working on big quilts, I needed a little instant gratification. I had a new display rack for my purse patterns & accompanying demo pieces…so I needed demo pieces!
Each one is my favorite, but for a different use.
Travel favorite-The Weekender Tote
I could pack a few drawers from my dresser plus toiletries in this bag. There are pockets that line the inside. I decided on full strips instead of a brick pattern for my outside and went with nice long straps.
These were the last strips left from a long-gone moda collection, London Lawns II. I lined the purse with a nice blue print from the Shirt Tales line.
Everyday Favorite-Amanda’s Purse
I am not out & about much, so I need very little in an everyday bag. This bag is right up my alley. Big enough to toss in my wallet, sunglasses & keys plus a bottle of water. I did my straps a little different (didn’t fold & stitch into a roll, but I still may. I like that it has a zipper & that the zipper was UBER easy to put in. This purse is also quilt as you go & uses charms. I used fabrics from Pat Sloan’s Georgia line for a nice fall look.
Styling Market Shopping Favorite-Jelly Bags
If I still carried a larger bag, this would be it. It will make a great market bag too. Lined & with pockets, it’s a great way to use up your leftover strips. I used Martinique from 3 Sisters.
