Little Bags

I'm so happy to show you the little bags that I've made this week.

Some lovely linen I got at a yard sale.

This is fabric I got from at a yard sale as well, years ago.
Hmm, I always thought that it was going to be a pillow.

They're from a great book called Making Vintage Bags by Emma Brennan. 
There are patterns for about 20 bags or variations there of.  
They're on the small side, the instructions call for the patterns to be increased
 by 165% but I think I'll make the next ones a little larger.

I'm fairly new to sewing anything other than simple quilts or pillows. This is the first time I've used interfacing and magnetic snaps and such. Wonderful stuff! 

Looks like this little gal should have some eyes and nose to go with that tail.

These are great Becky. For someone who doesn't sew much beyond simple quilting (IS there such a thing???) I have to say I'm impressed.
