Bag lady!

Hello and happy Monday! I hope that you had a good weekend! I had a very full weekend! My oldest son who was visiting us had to head back on Saturday and it has left me feeling a little blue. He is such a great kid! He is making his own way and starting his own life and I am so proud of him, but on a totally selfish note I miss him to pieces! He made it back safely! :)

I spent the entire day Saturday working on my swap project for my SU! demo meeting on Sunday! The project was to use a Big Shot Die and fabric to make something. Being the lame-o over achiever that I am I chose to make one of the purses that are so hot right now! I did not have the scalloped die though so I used the Top Note die for the actual bag and the Flower Layers die to make the flowers! I had to make 7 of them!!! That did not include one for myself or the two that my daughters have requested I make them! LOL They are all quilted and have a liner. They were very time consuming, but were so much fun to make!!! They are bigger than they look in the picture and would hold a good amount of loot! :) Here are my bags:

This is my favorite color combo!

I turned all of my edges inward, so these are not really the rag style. I love the rag style but also really like the smooth lines of this type! I love bags!! I have so many it is not even funny! I plan on making a few more of these before I pack my machine back up! :)

Have a wonderful day! I will be back soonest! :)
