|Reverse of Eileen's Bag|
MATERIALS NEEDED: Two fat quarters, a zipper, some interfacing like ShapeFlex, and some fusible fleece. Plus this fabulous pattern.
Because I am a quilter, I always have tons of scraps in my studio. When I sew these scraps and make new fabric, they turn into some lovely Runarounds. (Note: all pictures are in pairs so you can see the front and the back of these clever little purses.)
These purses can be playful and whimsical, like the ones I made for my great nieces.
|Jo's fabric palette - she's a musician|
|Putting pieces on the floor, just to keep track of her project and mine.|
|Jo and my Husqvarna becoming friends - she had no sewing experience.|
|Smiling at the end of our session! and both girls are ready to return to the studio|
|Batiks and Shot Cottons|
|Pieced fabric and a funky print|
|Marcia Derse fabrics, zippers, and the pattern|
|And Voila - bags!|
|Treasured scraps become perfect Runarounds|
|Making them can become an addiction|
|This favorite scrap became a RunAround.|
Good pattern directions. Clever but easy construction. Practical results which can be dressed up or down. I estimate I have made 40 Runarounds so far. And I don't think I am finished yet.
