more bags

Over the last few months I've made a few bags. I thought I would share them all at once. They are all a variation of the same pattern. I love that I've gotten so much use out of one pattern. I should probably find another one to mix thing up a bit. 

this first bag was a birthday gift for my daughters friend. I scaled the bag down to fit her size. 

Her friends name starts with E, she turned 7 and her favorite color is turquoise. She loved the personalized bag. I think I might be making some more of these. 

I love this bag for summer. I made it for someone else, but I bought enough fabric to make my own. It's on my to-do list. 

I experimented with a new kind of closure. I really like it, I think the button works well with the fabric. 

Another upholstery bag. I love the gold color and the print. 
The fabric is amazing and originally cost $40 a yard.  I got it at a fabulous store that was going out of business. 

It was hard to let this one go. 
It's made from more expensive upholstery fabric bought at closeout. 
I love the print and all of it's great texture. 

Okay, I really liked this one too. It's so classic.
The fabric had this great woven almost burlap feel. The black damask is velvet.  

I got a huge piece of red vinyl for $5. I got it to make the baby shoes, knowing I would find something to do with the rest. Well, I thought I would try using it on a bag. 
It was much harder to work with then I expected. I'm excited to see how it holds up. I hate it when vinyl cracks. I'm still trying to decide if I love this one or not. Maybe I can't get over all the flaws.

I LOVE the second bag. Do you remember what the fabric is? I am doing my girls' bathroom and that would be perfect for a shower curtain!

Love these bags! I have a pattern that looks similar and you are making me want to go start one right now!

I really like the bags that you made. Is it a commercial pattern or is it your own design? I would like to make one similar since all of yours turned out great!

Oh my, if you cannot get over the "flaws" on the red vinyl, I would definitely buy it! I think it is very cute!

Steph said...

Oh wow! The upholstery bags are the best!!! The one with the red vinyl is awesome and I can assure you that it looks flawless!!! The damask fabric is awesome but I think that you might find that the velvet wears off fairly quickly where it rubs against your body... I had this happen with a similar fabric.

Awesome work!

Please tell us the pattern!
They are all so great:) I especially love the idea of the personalized bag. What a great gift for a little girl. We call ours the "bag lady" becuase she always has one over shoulder stuffed full of junk:)

For anyone wondering what pattern I used, it was one that I bought on etsy and isn't available anymore. Sorry. I'll let you know if it's released again.
