Last Weekend's Bags

The only projects I got done last weekend was creating two bags. the first was a little bag for my friend Holly's youngest Avery. Her birthday is in October and I didn't have any great ideas so I decided to make her a little purse. It's probably a big purse to her, but I think it can hold a lot of great things - I think her favorite dolly will fit in it too!. I used charm Squares and just sewed them together for the outside and handles. Then made a lining out of a coordinating fat quarter.

I also made a bag for Megan Watson, the long-term substitute that is teaching the English class next door. We share students. She also did her student teaching with my students last year. She's been a trooper trying to plan lessons, learn how to be a teacher, and handle all the issues our students seem to have. I chose some fabric with words on it - Authentic by Sweetwater for Moda - to bring in that English teacher thing. I took a pattern from Moda Bake Shop by Nicole from and changed it a bit for Megan's bag. I really like it and I hope she will too!

  1. I just realized that Avery didn't send you a thank you...and should have. (I should have) She loves the purse and it is her favorite in her dress up bin. Thank you
