Hello Stampers! I have missed posting the last few days because I have really been overcome with a cold! And boy did it get me down! I have been doing good to get out of bed and go to work, but the rest of the time I have pretty much been down on the couch or in bed! Now I am just stuck with the lingering cough! However, I am feeling better today finally!
I wanted to show you this neat bag/purse that my daughter Amie made at my mom's house last weekend! This was her first time ever sewing! Didn't she do a great job??? They talked about these bags a little bit at Leadership, so I decided to give it a try! We cut the squares out using the Big Shot and the scallop square die. It was so simple and would cut through 8 layers of fabric at one time! This bag used six squares on each side, two on each side, and three on the bottom. Plus, each square has a backing square with batting in between, for a total of 36 squares.
I made a tote bag by just adding another row of squares on top, but my mom liked it so much that I left it with her! Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of it!!! I am going to be hitting the fabric store soon for more fabric to make myself another one, and my daughter Casie wants to make one now too! I'll show pics of them when they are finished!
