Oh Yeah! I do love to sew and I am passionate about fabrics and yes, I love bags to put things in. This is a fabric called Fairy Frost and has a silvery shimmer to it.
Being part of this amazing blogging community is one of my greatest joys. So many talented and generous people all sharing like-minded hobbies.
While reading one of my daily blogs I check http://lacelovinlibrarian.blogspot.com I found this little bag Diane had sewn. Instantly I knew I just had to make one. Luckily Diane gave the link to a tutorial. http://quiltsalott.blogspot.com/2009/01/origami-pouch-tutorial.html
Thank you so much to these kind and generous people who love to create wonderful things.
Here is my sewn pouch with a beaded charm detail. I love butterflies and use them whenever I am able to. Butterflies represent 10,000 happinesses.
This little bag is also referred to as origami pouch as it has a wonderful way of sewing and folding to create it. This photo shows the inside lining fabric and the outside pocket. Both sides of the bag are this way.
Here is the completed bag with the flaps down over the outside pockets. Drawstring cords pull the top tight and close in the contents.
I am so thrilled to have sewn this little bag. Now I am planning on sewing many more as I can think of lots of gifts I can give.
Fabric choices are endless. Embellishing is endless. Diane used buttons on her flaps and that is very cute. I already have a lot of fabrics which will be excellent choices for these wonderful little bags.
Thank you once again to the generous sharing of knowledge and information and talents that blogging affords all of us.
May you have a wonderful week of creativity and enjoy these waning days of summer...
