It all began with my younger sister and her birthday. I sewed this bag for her and then came the trail of other bags for other people. The pattern is by Heather Bailey and this is really called a birdie sling. Don't ask me why people because I don't carry birdies in any bag and I don't think Kristi does either. So this only took me two weeks to do in between the crafting for our sisters bizarre. If I had worked on it steady perhaps it would have only taken a day or two. You know, read instructions, cut, pin, sew, rip out, reposition and sew again, etc.
Here is the bag I made for my daughter, Jill. She picked her fabric as did Kelli. This took me about six hours because even though I had already made one for my sister it had been a couple of months and I had to read the instructions again as I went along. These bags are huge. She told me she needed one to put my youngest grandson in and to please make a padlock on top. Heh! Kidding.
I finished up Kelli's bag last weekend. It only took me a total of four hours to do this. I really didn't need the instructions this time. Kelli informed me that she can not have too large of a bag. She is one of "those" people that love to go to movies. You know what I mean. And if you don't then you haven't seen the cost of the concessions. I had to line hers in plastic. Kidding. Really.
Some trick or treat bags for some little boys in my family. I wanted them to fill these up so they could share with their daddy.
Well I had to make something for the farm kitchen. I was kind of feeling left out.
Then there is the farmer trying to figure out how these bags work. Sorry Jill. Your bag happened to be the example.
Sorry again Jill.
