In addition to my usual lust for quilting, I have been dabbling a bit in other sewing projects lately, namely, bag making. I took a class on Craftsy (which is basically my new favorite thing to do) and I've been working away ever since.
This was my first effort:
Basic stuff, but with adorable octopus fabric. Then I got a little more complex and made a quilted makeup bag using this tutorial.
Next I decided to get schmancy and make a couple of pink sparkle clutches (which I did already feature on the blog, if you're curious). One is pink sparkle vinyl.
And the other is fabric and is made using this tutorial.
Then I decided to make a matching set of bags for me, my mom, and my grandma.
And a similar bag to carry our travel journals for our big trip to Japan!
Thanks to my mom for all of those color pens! We made good use of them while we were away.
And finally, my most complicated bag project to date, my travel bag for Japan! (pattern here)
I have plans to make more bags in the future, but I have a feeling quilts are going to keep me quite busy for some time.
