This is one of the most creative ideas I have ever been part of. There are 27 Quilty types who have gathered their favorite internet freebie tutorials to share with you one. This bonanza of information has been coordinated by Joan over at Moose Stash Quilting, a big thanks goes out to her.
My Freebie Tutorial is the Easy - Peasy Back Pack . It came out in March of 2015. Since then I have made well over a dozen of them. I have also been part of a group sew in with my guild where I introduced members to the link. I think everyone who participated made at least 2.
My most recent (not) was this one made for the June, Where Flowers Bloom Blog Hop.
The pattern doesn't call for it to be reversible. Very easy to fudge so long as the straps you are using tie.
This is where you can find it every time I go out the door
The next few are in the order I made them, I think
These two look similar but if you look closely one has a cord for straps while the other has fabric, also the accent fabric choice is different.
There was a third of this pattern but it walked out the door within hours of its final pressing
Used as a Christmas Gift Bag
This one was made using prequilted fabric and a pocket was added to the outside. I made this one while I was still living in Jersey, 3 plus years ago. I was still using it on a very regular basis until the Flower Power one took it's place.
This one was made with this little Princess in mind.
This bag can me made of anything. This one was made specifically around the puppy block Which is smaller than the original bag
The Flower Power bag was applique. The Flower Power bag was also made to be reversible.
This bag was made just to carry that matching quilt home from Florida to Colorado
The next 4 pictures were taken at my sisters. She is a great admirer of my work
this is actually how they are stored at her house ( on hangers not hanging off the kitchen counter )
I added the front pocket to this one too.
Last week my niece asked if I could give her the numbers to make this quilt block excluding the outer border. I worked up the numbers and then made the block to make sure I was accurate.
So what do you do with a 10 inch block the week before you do a post on bags, of course you whip it into one of course.
This one is a little bigger than the pattern.
I made the bag reversible and sent it off to my niece.
So now that you have followed along all this way I have only one more bag to show.
This one I timed to find out how long it took to make the actual bag. I did it in 1 hour and 20 minutes with a cord strap. If you are making a matching/coordinating fabric strap it would take a bit longer.
This bag will go to one of my visitors who leaves a nice comment regarding this wonderful hop.
I will ship anywhere. Just make sure I can contact you for a mailing address.
Oh yeah, I made this one reversible too.
We'll pick a name Sunday night.
Thanks for stopping by. If you haven't see a master list I am adding it to the bottom of this post. There are so many wonderful places to go and see. Take a few minutes and visit one and all.
Thank you to all of the participants in this wonderful adventure.
