More Little Girl Bags

The last batch of little girl bags that I made a few weeks ago were really well received.  In keeping with my goals for 2010, I decided to make six more for the art sale.  I cut these all out in January and then assembled little "kits" with everything I needed for each bag.  And then they just sat on my sewing desk while I worked on other projects.  My goal for last week was to get them all done and I did.  Woohoo!

Perhaps this one should go to Minnie Mouse?

I find this rose print fabric to be a little like the widow's flour and oil in I Kings 17.  No matter how much I use up, there is always more.  I used it here and here.  I also made a huge "gift bag" for a garbage can out of it a few months back.  And there's still more...

This is the same combination of colors I used here.  I'm not sure I like it as much for the bag.

It's good to have these done.  Now I'm working on something similar to these that will work for boys.  Back to the development stage...

  1. These are darling! You need to open an Etsy shop and sell them to the public. People pay big bucks for beautifully crafted homemade items like these. Just my 2 cents. :)

  2. They are all really great! I agree with Amanda, you should open up an Etsy shop for sure.

  3. The rose-print style is almost just like what I've been looking for in a purse myself--did you make the pattern yourself? So, so talented! I enjoyed your comparison to the widow's flour and oil, lol. It's a beautiful print to boot!

  5. I love the variety of the bags - how each one has different colours and decorations but they all look super girly. What a good eye you have.
