I made a few handbags when I first started sewing, but was never real happy with them. That was before I learned about interfacing. Who knew? I thought I'd give it another try. I found a small bag at All People Quilt that seemed to be the perfect just got to run out to the store and don't want to carry my big bag, kind of thing and that got me started. That's the little blue polka dot one on the bottom. The other 3 were just experiments with no pattern. Of course as I've said before - me and patterns don't get along all that well.
So here are my handbag experiments. Excuse my photography I was getting chomped on by mosquitoes while taking these. (where's the Benadryl spray!)
I've started working on the middle of the big flower on the sunflower quilt. 90 degree triangles are not easy for me. I did try to cheat and foundation piece the block I'm using for the center of the flower, but it didn't work all that well. So I'll have to buck up and do it the traditional way.
Also just finished about 10 Christmas hot pads for a little craft show I'm doing. They were fun and to get finished with them all so quick is good. Seems like most quilting takes so long, it's such a happy things to finish something in under 2 hours. I normally do a few little things between my larger projects. I have a Halloween theme ATC to get done for the swap on Quilt With Us. I kind of have it in my mind so that should be pretty quick too. Yea for quick little quilts. Booo for mosquitoes - itchy
