My Quilting Bag




Well I got it finished and it's very useful. Holds a lot of my stuff to take to the classes at Beamish.
I managed to find enough matching bits of fabric in the cupboard that were strong enough for the bag. To be truthful two of them were humongous skirts cotton I bought in M&S for a £1!



It has lots of pockets to hold all the bits & pieces. Took me ages to make fitting all the different sections together, quilting it & then I added some beads so I'm put off from making another one even though I need another bag. So much stuff to carry! 

Have to say I would like one for the bedroom to hold all the gubbins I have lying around (my hairdryer & make up etc)

Maybe one of these days!

  1. You have given us so many ideas for these bags. Now I want a couple of them so will try to inspire my sister-in-law to make me some:-) LOL

  2. That is lovely! It must hold a lot also. Organization makes life much more enjoyable. I'm always making piles for donation, but I bring things home pretty quickly to replace stuff I've given away. I am enjoying coming down the home stretch with my homespun knitted wrap. How rewarding to finish things up. haha, I've inspired myself.

    1. I do that too. I try to take something out of the wardrobe if I buy something new but I find it difficult. I'm such a hoarder. Sometimes it comes in useful. Ages ago I bought a small canvass intending to paint it. Never did but tonight my granddaughter wanted something to make a painting for Remembrance day. I found it along with a lot of paints & paintbrushes, acrylic paints, some red tissue to make poppies, black buttons for the poppy centres & double sided sticky tape. A boxful of stuff in fact but I bet some of it comes back here. Roll on more school projects to help me get rid of more stuff.

    Hope you are all keeping well.

    1. Not really Sandy. It takes me ages & I always find faults with things I make. It used to stop me from making things but a firend told me that I had to just accept that nothing is perfect and to get on with making things. Good advice.
