Bags and more bags

Kia-ora  I have been asked to teach a class at a Pinestream Quilters  [my quilting club] club day. So the last few weeks I have been busy making samples and writing up the  method and notes for this class.

Two of my stitching friends have been my Guinea Pigs—using my notes checking all measurements are correct and the notes are easy to follow.

Thanks June and Jann.I dont have a photo of the bags they made –they are stunning!!!

The bag  or Tote which ever you chose to call it ias numerous pockets inside is batted both bag and lining and has a stable bottom—Long straps for easy carrying.

This bag has pockets on the side as I did not want to cover up the delightful Poppies on the front

Favourite!This would be a favourite its a  bright happy looking bag and has a wee glass purse made from leftovers

Finished bag 

This is another sample –see the pocket on the front
