While I've been making coasters, Cheryl has been busy at her sewing machines. Using fabric scraps and remnants, she's started piecing together colorful handbags. I visited her craft room yesterday to take pictures; by the time I got home, she had already finished another bag!
Using fabric scraps, she was able to create a patchwork effect.
I think I'll keep this one for myself...
A green patchwork pattern.
Not all of the bags follow the patchwork pattern. Here are some of the other patterns and designs.
She makes sure the bags have a sturdy lining and each one is made with a pocket on the inside. Here's where all the magic happens - note how much fabric she still has to go through!
