Project Bags

A few of the knitting grrls got together at my house Saturday for tea and project-bag making. Susan instructed us in the art of making little project bags out of two fat quarters of fabric. After much food and wine tea, we embarked upon the sewing.

Eliza sews with confidence,

and Susan pouts because her seam didn’t match up PERFECTLY. (It was one thread off. The rest of us were in awe.)

Meanwhile, birthday girl Margene watches in amusement as the rest of us struggle with our sewing skills.

At the end of the day, I had a cute little reversible project bag, which just needs a ribbon for the drawstring:

    Too cute. So sad that I’m allergic to sewing…

    It was so much fun to watch Susan sew. She’s got fab skillz and made sure we all had darling bags! Thanks for having us over. Tea parties where you have someone sew you a little bag can be very fun. 😉

    Such a nifty bag. And finished in a day? Amazing what a group of friends having a good time can do!

    We need to make Eliza’s cute bag with the handles next time! I’ll start looking for fabric with deer hooves printed on it.

    That damn perfectionist Susan! I’m so horrible at sewing. I don’t get hot flashes (yet, knock wood) EXCEPT when I’m sewing. Heh-heh.

    But those are such adorable bags! Glad you could entertain our Birthday Girl. XO

    What a great way to spend an afternoon!

    Poor Susan. Being off by a thread can be so annoying.

    That is one cute bag! I am curious to see how the drawstring goes in. I have made some but I don’t like how the drawstring ends up.

    Lovely bags – any chance Susan might be convinced to share her pattern? Thank you.
