I’ve been called a “bag lady” by my friend Jill and by my dad. They don’t know each other.
See, on any given day, I may have my bag-like purse, another bag with knitting or sewing, another bag for work stuff, a lunch bag, a bag for kids’ junk, etc. Whenever I’m gone for any length of time, I usually have at least two bags used for different intentions (typically my purse and my knitting bag), though thankfully I don’t lug multiple bags to errands and whatnot. I get comments and good-natured eye rolling from my Dad when I carry in my bags for a stay at my parent’s house for the week-end.
In that spirit, here are some recently made bags:
My new summer, hippie beach bag…(I did haul two bags that day to the beach; the other one was an insulated lunch backpack).
All of these bags are completely reversible (some are shown with both sides). I intend to sell most of them at a craft sale or on etsy. I don’t have a pattern so much for these bags as much as it’s a concept; the size is determined almost entirely by the amount of fabric available. There are actually two more bags on the docket, though you probably won’t see them for a few weeks.
Happy early 4th of July!! I’ve been teaching my history-buff son why John Hancock’s big signature was very brave and very dangerous; he’s been full of questions about why the 4th is important. We’re heading to the Liberty Fest parade tomorrow for probably the best-done small-town parade in a 50-mile radius.
