Thank you for your comments on my previous post. The larger piece will be a quilt and the two smaller pieces will be pillows.

Have a great weekend,

New Bags

These are some bad pictures but the bags look really beautiful.
I used the pattern of this bag, I just modified the size of some pieces.


Faux leather bag

This faux leather is the perfect fabric- soft and flexible - for this pattern.

What I love most at this bag is the simplicity of the top edge.

A quilting weight fabric doubled with a medium interfacing is not soft and flexible anymore (some fusible batting would have been better), that's why I chose to change the shape of the top edge and add two straps.

It's pretty! The fabric is Heather Bailey.

Do you remember? That's a pretty pocket!



I suppose I will make other 10 modified versions, trying to get the better shape and functionality and in the end, it is very possible to think that the first version was the best!

Have a great sewing week,

The pattern is so versatile and the large front panel is great for showing off beautiful fabrics or patterns.

I made these bags for my sisters and they don't want to change them with any other bag they have. I tested it myself, one bag is mine. I understand why they love it so much - it's spacious, but it doesn't look too big and it is comfortable!!

It's easy to change the size and sew smaller or bigger bags.

New Faux Leather Woven Bags

I am still having fun weaving faux leather. It takes little time. But finishing the bags made out these woven panels -  that's a different story! That's why my collection of woven bags will have only four patterns!

Here is one of the patterns.

I made it first in this brown-cream-yellow combination.

Then I thought to make a collection with all four patterns in assorted colors so I repeated the pattern.

The first woven argyle pattern was a little challenging. In fact, after I finished it, a little disappointed, I thought myself that it is the first and last!
I am glad I did not give up! While working on this pattern, new ideas came my way, making the entire process fun and easy!

Sometimes you just need to want and think a little...

The thread is the same thick Aurifil 12wt.

I can't wait to show you the other patterns. I still have a lot of work to do.

Have a great week,
