My Fat Quarter Bag for Sew It

Sew It sew-a-party is on and we are making this fat quater bag

Yes i finished my bag  and cant believe how quickly this project came about :)

The girls spent the day at their uncle’s house so i managed to get some sewing done, this bag took approx an hour if not less to make. From cutting the fabrics to finishing the bag, the tutorial was pretty much straight forward, nothing too complex.

I meant to use my fat quarters from patty young but they were just a tad too small so i used this red fabric and lined with with black.

I used yellow thread to top stitch and loving how it blends with the yellow in the fabric

I ended up changing the top of the bag my lining shows a bit more that needed but i had so much left

so i thought why not?

This turned out to be a mini tote bag, i say mini cause of the handles..the bag itself is good size easily carries a couple of magazines and this would make a great shopping bag…ditch the plastic and save the enviornment.

Oh and i discovered that this bag is REVERSIBLE

Sorry i dont have a picture to show you however check my video to see the bag in action – its out of sync again sorry about that i have no idea! If you do please let me know

Now that you’ve seen the bag its your turn to make it

Once you’ve made it join me and link up to MY  PARTY!

In addition to linking it to my party i am going to be strutting my bag to these parties too :)
