Have you been wondering about my Christmas in July progress? Well, fear not, I have made some progress and I have even photographed it!
Jeni’s Lined Drawstring Bag has been popping up all over the blogosphere, but I was able to resist its charms until my mom wrapped my birthday present in an Artist Bag. I decided to try out the tutorial before buying the pattern, and started on an Everything Bag, using three fat quarters of Joy by Kate Spain. Before I even finished the first bag, I liked it so well that I bought the full pattern.
This pattern is absolutely genius! With careful cutting, I was able to make two Everything Bags out of three fat quarters. They came together super quick and easy. I have less time to sew than I would like, but still managed to make four of these bags in less than a week.
They are so much fun that I already have two more in progress, in different sizes. I love the bags I’ve already made, but they seem a little small for my purposes, so I’ll probably make more bags in the bigger sizes. I can’t wait ‘til Christmas when I can wrap presents in these fun bags!
