I Made a Bag

Happy Septemeber!

Remember in July when I found a bunch of scraps from a quilt for 2008?   I knew I wanted to do something with them but I couldn't decide what.  I thought that I would use them on the back of a quilt but I didn't.  I looked at them yesterday and decided I would sew them together to make a bag.  I had an idea that I thought might make a cool bag pattern and a little tutorial for you all.

 

Here's the bag!  But, no tutorial.  My idea worked - sort of LOL!  In the end I got a bag but I had to really fight for it to work.  So, here's the finished bag, which used up all of those scraps, but, no tutorial because I didn't like the way that it went together.  :-(  I do like the finished bag though!

Best of all - this is all from my stash!

*lol* Love your comment that your idea worked "sort of"...

I do like that bag... very nice... now I want to drop everything and make one...

I love the look, the scrappy piecing is just wonderful! I also know the problems of "testing" your ideas. Keep at it - you'll have a breakthrough idea that will make it all worthwhile and meanwhile you get a few new bags :)

The bag is wonderful. And what a great idea to make a bag from scraps or even a partially pieced quilt (I have a lot of those--LOL).
