My friend Evelyn had a birthday the other day, and I'd promised to make her a project bag. Of course, I couldn't resist making one for myself too!
Here are the two bags I ended up making for Evelyn:
The first one I made with some of my Makower London Icons and a solid blue fabric. Inside is Michael Miller Quarter Dot in black:
Next up was Michael Miller French Toast in grey. I just love this fabric - I bought a yard of each color and some coordinating polka dot prints last October when they were on sale. I'd hoped to make them into a quilt, but could never figure out a pattern that would show this large print to its best advantage. So I decided to cut into them for these bags. The interior of this one is Michael Miller Citron Gray Huevos in gray.
And because that one turned out so nicely, I made myself one too, this time with Sorbet French Toast Aqua, lined with Quarter Dot Grey. I have to say, this one is my favorite, which is a good thing because it made the other two easier to give away!
Of course, these were all made following Noodlehead's Open Wide Zippered Pouch tutorial. Believe it or not, I still have to have it in front of me when I make these, otherwise I don't get the zipper in the right direction!
Have any of you tried this tutorial out yet?
