Bags & Aprons

This week has brought some fun additions to our shop samples.
Bags...and Aprons! Both are always fun to make as they don't take much time
and are something everyone can use.

The picture above is from a pattern called Snap Happy by the Stitchin' Sisters
These are super fun and super simple bags to make that "snap" open quickly.
I had so much fun doing various quilting and embellishing with both bags.
I used the newest variegated heavy weighted thread by Valdani Threads for my quilting
and embellished the red bag by adding iron-on crystals.

I saw this bag when we were in market in Pittsburgh and fell in love with it in part
because of it's different shape, and the way it closes. (ties on the bottom)
It is called the Penelope bag by Sew Unique Creations. It is a fun bag to put together
and is loaded with different pockets of various sizes!!
We also put in Clover's new Shape & Create bag bottom to add some nice stability in the
bottom of the bag. (I felt it was a great way to keep the bag from "bottoming out" and was
nice and easy to work with and sew on)

This bag is called Pocket Perfect and was designed by Indygo Junction, Inc. This is a bucket
bag with the main pocket on the front and a fun bag from carrying around essentials.
I used the new wrap and fuse piping by Clover, and although I had never worked with
piping before thought it was wonderful and very fun to use. You simply cut, iron and sew.
What a time saver!!!

The apron shown above, as well as below is from Mary Mulari and is called the Clothespin Apron. All of Mary's patterns are reversible, as seen from my photos. These are super easy
to do and don't take much time! As you can see I had fun adding rick-rack to my mine.

The last apron, shown below is a new apron pattern by Mary Mulari called the Hotdish Apron.
This also was quite fun and fast to put together, and we used some of the newest coffee fabric that had come into the shop.

Hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July weekend!
Have a great week...
