Bags are back!

Here are pictures of bags that were sewn back in December.  The first on the list were bags for both of my granddaughters, Karas and McKinley.  They are both girly girls and love anything to do with bags.  This pattern is by Fishsticks Designs.  The zippered front pocket is just the right size for all the little extra's a girl needs.
I filled them with coloring and activity books, crayons, pencils and notepads. These are great for taking to church.  The only adjustment to the bag was that I made it a little bit longer.
By the smiles on their faces I think they were happy with what was inside their gift. 
  This next bag was a custom order from a nice man in California.  My awesome friend Emily's dad, Walt wanted something made in blue batiks for his wife for a Christmas present.  We did this all on the sly without her mom knowing it.  I combined a couple different patterns to achieve just what he was requesting.  The long strap makes this a purse that is easy for traveling and the size of the bag is just right for all the essentials.
 I  hope she liked what was under her Christmas tree this year. 
 And the last bag was also an order for my sweet sister Jan.  She was looking for something for her granddaughter to be used as a baby doll diaper bag.  This pattern called The Bella Bag by Anka's Treasures has three size options.  The smallest is just the right size to hold all of baby's needs
 You can use the handle as two or one long one. 

I haven't posted any bags for a very long time, have I?  I'm sure in the year to come there will be more to sew and share with you.
