The Bag Challenge

I was browsing this am and came across May Britts blog,(www.abyquilt.blogspot.com) and she has a bag challenge on. As part of it, one has to have a blog posting about the bags one has made. I have only ONE drawstring bag that I have made-- but thought that 1 is better than none-- so decided to show it on the post. I had made this as a PJ bag to match the cot quilt I had made.




I have also just tried making a makeup purse-- made it in plain fabric as a trial and I must say it was OK---( am carrying my current stitchery that I am working on in it instead)-- so will now spend more time by making another with a patchwork design. Will post it on the blog when I have finally made it.


It is a glorious day in Sydney today-- the sky is a beautiful blue and it is chilly but not windy. So I am off to the shops for groceries for tonight's dinner-- will walk along the beach to the shops. I wonder if the seal will be there today? It has been using that same spot as a resting place for a few weeks but has not been there this last week.

Have a lovely relaxing weekend.

Thank you for the comment you made on my SAL post. I like your idea of an apron instead of the chair. I was thinking yesterday about my favorite things. One is college football and my favorite season is Autumn. I'm mulling over the idea of a an Autumn leaf and a football but haven't quite decided yet.
I'm thinking about making the bag in the SKOW book.

I hope you see the seal again. Your bag is so pastoral- relaxing and beautiful. Good luck with your Tour progress.
