New Bags

Since the weather has been unpredictable at best, we have been working at home more rather than in the studio. Which means we are sewing more, since that is our home time craft. We have gotten some great new fabrics and have made some very simple pieced bags. I am reluctant to call them quilting of any sort since so much more work goes into quilting. We picked out some great coordinating fabric and picked a simple geometric square design to start with. The best part of making a pieced bag is picking the fabrics to use in them. There are so many fabulous combinations. Mine are of course all in the Fall color palette and Rachel's evoke spring and summer. Try your hand at putting different colors and fabrics together and see what you come up with.
