From a scrap to a bag

I have done some serious cleaning and sorting on my fabric stash. It (the stash and whole process, actually) was bigger than I have wanted to admit, and I realized that I need to get rid of some.

I thought it would be easier to start the binning with the smallest scraps but heavens! how difficult it was. I just kept making nice piles with reds, blues, whites when it hit me: A scrap bag! I´ll use all (read: some) of these to make bags! Alone they´re too little but together... Just perfect.

Now I have piles of whites & blues, yellows & oranges, browns & whites waiting to be sewn. Sigh. How did I fool myself this bad again?

Happy Sunday!

did you use a pattern for this? I love the red one.

Hi Sonia,

I´ve designed&drawn my own pattern to this bag, and cut it out of cardboard, very professional indeed ;) The fabrics I just chose from heart.

It´s so great that you liked the bag - thanks for visiting, and please feel welcome to come again!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
