Bag Again


Here is the bag with the blue to attach the phone case and change purse. I am not so crazy about the back of it. Maybe I should have made the bottom gold piece a bit wider but I was trying to get a pocket for sunglasses. It still could have been wider and still worked. Oh well, not to worry. It's finished except for sewing the key holder on. I have to get some more brown thread for that but I am heading off to town shortly so it will be done this afternoon. I dyed some fabric blue for the lining. I just happened to have some dye that matched the blue I used on the back of the words.
Then it's back to the chicken coop if I can find some backing fabric that I like.

This is clever! Love the letters and the idea that there's a place for everything. Great job.

Hi Joyce, what a great bag! I love how you've made the wonky style of piecing your very own! That is one of the neatest things ever, learning how to do a skill and then adding our own touch..*VBS*

Really LOVE the chicken house with a fox...LOL Very foxy! Hugs, Finn

Most clever! It would be difficult to lose anything in this bag. In my opinion, the other side doesn't need decoration. I see its unadorned side as an option to be more sedate as to exposing humor and cleverness to the world.

I agree with Nellie about the 'quiet' side of the bag. It is fun, & also practical.

I would have to agree with the others and wouldn't worry about changing the back of the bag. I like the way you've made the handle. I think it looks better than the knot you had before.

what a fun bag - I am doing a bag swap with my quilt group in June and I have been looking at bag patterns all over the place but I love your original idea!
