Sunday Stash – Totes Baggy

This week I managed to finish up a miniquilt and 18 luggage tags for work presents (don’t ask – half of them I had to throw away because of problems with the ink smearing on the printable fabric I used once I got close to the end).

I also made myself a new purse, which I am delighted with.  I use the “Candice Bag” pattern from Lazy Girl Designs.  Rather than just use a plain piece of fabric for the pocket exterior, I spent a little more time and paper pieced a ring of flying geese using this free pattern, scaled down to a 10″ block.

Candice Bag from Lazy Girl Designs.I used the last of the gray fabric from my Lone(ly) Rainbow quilt for the exterior; quite literally, I have a 2″ x 18″ strip of it left. Whew. Candice Bag from Lazy Girl Designs.

There are plenty of interior pockets, too – one is a “fat” pocket to stash my Kindle, and maybe one day an iPad (I have to save my pennies!).  I also added an interior zip pocket for makeup and other “lady things” that I don’t want to be out in plain view if I leave it unzipped. So, a fairly productive week.  Next up I’m tackling a smaller quilt on commission, but I don’t think I’ll finish it before bedtime tonight.

  1. Love the purse! Let us know how it works out; I’m always looking for good purse patterns!

  2. Your purse is beautiful. I love the flying geese idea, although they are not a favorite of mine to make. I might reconsider now that I’ve seen how pretty they turned out on your purse. Great stash numbers, by the way.
