HOW CUTE ARE THEY?

video
ABOVE:   my cute as dogs yesterday after their baths.. and cos I know so many of you 'foreigners' like to hear me voice... a wee video for ya.

Today it's back to Patchwork class, where I am hoping like hell the Tutor has brought along her 'CUTE Bag'... cos the one I am making has confusing instructions and we can't make head nor tail of them!  I have been 'working' on the bag for weeks but just can't understand how it all goes together.  It should be simple, it ain't a complicated bag really!

It's a really neat bag and I want to make a few of them... so fingers crossed today we make some progress.

ABOVE:  I finally got the last Placemat Block done... now I have to add the wadding, backings and quilt/bind them all.  Not that much then eh?  lol
ONWARD....

Patchwork class:  I stayed an extra hour today.. as I was determined to get that friggin bag done... or at least know what I was doing to finish it TODAY.  And I am going to finish it today!  I had to stop on the way home to buy some dowel... now off to finish it.. well.. as soon as I've had me 'brunch'... it's almost 1pm and I'm starving....

 ABOVE:  it's DONE!   I'm calling it a  'CUTE Bag' because:

ABOVE:  When you open it.. it sits like this!  I TOTALLY love this bag... and now... I'm gunna make some more!  I'm sure it will be a really nice Christmas Present for a few people!  LOL.

HEY!  Stop giving me credit for this wonderful bag!  It's been 'around' for decades I'm told... I just happened to see one and wanted to make one (or 10).... it's an oldie but a goodie for sure!

End of Day:  SHIT!  It's like, midnight!  I got carried away making a 2nd CUTE bag!  Better go to bed me thinks.  nite nite.

  9. Puppies are cute when they are clean and playful aren't they?

  11. The stay-open bag looks really good. Nice finishing, good fabric choices, no raw edges and it stays open? I really wonder how it does that.

  12. That bag would make a fabulous nappy bag!!! Would hold all the assorted crap you always take out when a baby is involved, and is funky, very cool indeed!

  13. Wow, that's ingenious! LOVE THE BAG!

  14. Now that is a really cool bag!! That would make a great toy bag (to take out while visiting etc) or a great baby stuff bag. Very clever and I'm sure you'll get a few takers for that.
