Gettin' Busy

As I enticingly mentioned in my last post (go on - admit it - you were enticed), I've been furiously making bags - inspired by the WhipUp/WhipLash challenge, the Amy Butler Swing Bag pattern, and a realisation that I love making these bags for gifts that everyone appears to love receiving. This blue and chocolate delight now belongs to my friend Denise (who still can't believe that I MADE HER A BAG!) and includes a $5 piece of fabric from the local upholsterer (in the sale bin, usually $120/metre), some coordinating fabrics from my stash, and bag handles from Jewels:

I especially love the naughty bright pink Amy Butler stripe and floral which make up the exterior and interior of the little pocket...so cute. It was actually very difficult to give this one away - but it helps that Denise loves it and I know that she appreciates the work I have put into this just for her (the WHOLE two hours. A lifetime in cat years). I have adapted the pattern yet again for ANOTHER bag which I have very nearly finished tonight, after sacrificing CSI:New York - it is only TV after all. Hope to post pictures here soon...but tomorrow, the finished nappy bag for my SIL (cue dramatic and enticing sound effects!)

Forgot to say, I actually am already a very fortunate recipient of a great nappy bag which gets used on a daily basis. I guess I am just being greedy....
