"Bag It" - 2017

Have you seen ..... Patty at Elm Street Quilts is holding a competition for bag making!

Running from18th September through to 15 December 2017, however you must only enter bags you have created and made after 18 September.

All the rules are on her blog HERE (or you can also click the button in my right hand margin to go to Patty's blog directly).You will see lots of tutorials for different bags. Go on, you know you want to join in! Have a read, find out all the nitty gritty!

I just love the fabric I used for this little bag, read all about the bag HERE (the idea is that the bag is small enough to sit comfortably on my wrist while I knit, holding my ball of wool so it doesn't roll all over the floor).

My Mini Tote - The Flashing Scissors

I intend to use some of the main fabric to make a larger everyday bag, and probably incorporate some of the other fabrics you can see here:

Fabric Choices - The Flashing Scissors


Not quite sure which I will use yet, but they are my favourite fabrics at the moment.

Are you going to join in? Go and have a look at Patty's blog, see what's happening!

I'm looking forward to seeing how many bags you can make!

Oh, I am not affiliated to Patty's blog in any way, just thought the bag competition looks such a fun idea, and I'm sure we all love making bags!

Cute bag! I've never really liked making them, but there are some cute ones out there.

Of course it will be purple!
It is nice to have bags of different sizes, to have a bag within a bag, or on the wrist while knitting, or tied around the waist for gardening, shopping, hanging washing.... One can never have too many bags, eh?

Brigitte said...

Your little bag is just stunning, such lovely fabrics and colours. And the fabrics you will be using for the next bag are just awesome. I love this colour combo so much.
Thanks for the link, I will go there and see what it is about.

This is a lovely little bag. I love all the purples you are using :)

Cute bag with a purpose. The fabrics are great. I absolutely love the fabric on top of the stack you will use for a larger bag. I'm going to have to break down and sew a few bags myself as I have been looking for a new already made bag and none fit the bill.
xx, Carol

Gorgeous bag Barbara, just love all the fabrics you have chosen - perfect.

Justine said...

Good luck with the competition! Your bag is so sweet and practical too.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Lovely bag. I don't sew but I do appreciate the work that other people do.

Deepa said...

Love the bag and the fabrics. The pink with dots will make a beautiful vintage style dress for a little one

Magpie's Mumblings said...

Your little bag is perfect - and every so handy for holding your yarn. Nothing is more aggravating than constantly having to round it up as it scampers about on the floor!

Mary at Fleur de Lis Quilts said...

Cute bag, and one that will no doubt work hard. I said just today (no kidding) that I need to stop with the little projects and quilt. Well that was short lived! Already I have a bag in mind for Party's bag party. Thanks for the inspiration and the sidetrack! lol

Birthe M. Kalleland. Bjørhovde said...

Your bag is amazing. I love both the design and the fabrics you have used. :-)

This is such a sweet bag, Barbara, a winner I hope. I see that there is plenty of time to join and I was just thinking that I need to challenge myself more, so thanks for mentioning it.

I'd seen bowls to hold a ball of wool, but I'd never thought of a bag - what a great idea

Sandra Walker said...

That is a terrific bag! I am currently using a bag I made about 10 years ago, called The Hobo Bag, reversible, to hold my 'yarn' which is selvages. I'm making a rug, Amanda Jean style and it's such fun!
