July Bag Ladies!

Tonight was the monthly meeting of the Bag Ladies club at the shop. We made sewing totes/cosmetic bags. Each person made a unique size and shape, but they were all able to make at least two from a two fat quarters. The bags are a great way to use up random fat quarters and practice quilting. There were 6 in the class and I got pictures of at least one of the bags that each person made.
Becky made 4 super cute sewing bags.
Leticia had a bit of Hawaiian flair to hers:
Jo made a great, small 30's print bag.
Linda made two bags to match a large tote she is making.
Carol made the next two, the blue first and then the fun cosmetic bag below. The yellow one has flannel on the inside. Carol is the queen of flannel quilts.
Laurie made a couple small bags. This one was a floral print.
I think everyone learned how to put in the zipper easily and drop the feed dogs to close it off. We always have a good time and learn lots during our monthly meetings. Next month is a scrap bag for the sewing machine.
