And the next picture is of a pattern that was given to me at market last year. (Thank you Jackie Clark) It has taken me that long to make it but I knew I wanted a shopping bag while I was at the quilt show and market. The AQS that is.
So this is my rendition of the "JUNK" bag. Love it!This is probably one of my all time favorite's from Moda. It was French Generals very first line. The hankie belonged to my mom. I will think of her when using this bag. She loved shopping and bags. Like me, she always had something new for the season. I guess you could say she taught me well. This is the detail of the hankie, isn't it beautiful?
Embellished with a little bling and vintage buttons on the outside.
I used a charm pack for the back and some of the extra's for the word junk that is machine appliqued on. Although I won't be placing junk in this bag! Now Stuart, he would probably differ with me on this one. Uhh, dear?
The pockets inside also have a hankie attached. This was one belonging to Grandma Verl, she always had style.
With some of the leftovers I made a little pouch for little accessories, like my camera and some money!
So there's two more to add to this pile. So here's the fun. Just how many bags are in this pile, not counting the two I just shared with you. Want in? All you have to do is leave me a comment while I'm gone telling me the number of bags and why you like bags too. How easy is that? I'll leave this little contest open for a week. I'll reveal the winner next Sunday night. The prize, I think something from PA would be awesome don't you. So take a guess.
