Pockets in New Bag

Sue at North Winds Quilting ask about the pockets in my new bag and ask that I post some pictures of the inside. I decided that the easiest way to do that was to turn the bag inside out. The top picture shows the accordian pocket empty. It has folds to accommodate thicker items such a glass case and cell phone in a protective case.

The second picture shows the same pocket with the glass case inside.

The third picture shows the large zippered pocket. The bag and it's pockets are my design to fit my needs. The next bag I make to act as a purse will undoubtedly be different as I learn what works and what doesn't.

My New Bag

I've been working on a new bag, on and off this week and it's finally finished. My poor old purse was about to give up the ghost. I chose the fabrics because I feel they are very versatile and I'm a little lazy and don't like to change bags often. There are two large zippered pockets inside to corral smaller items (I hate things floating around in the way) and two accordian pockets to hold my glasses case and cell phone. I plan to make a matching tote bag to carry my handwork projects. I'll post it when I'm finished.

It's finished and delivered! Olivia's wedding reception was tonight and she was a truly beautiful bride and her new husband Riley was a very handsome and nice. They were waiting to open their gifts until after the reception, so I hope they like it! I finished with about 4 hours to spare (not uncommon for me). I think tomorrow I will sit like a lump on the sofa and veg. Then onto a new project on Monday.

Niece's Wedding Quilt

My niece's wedding quilt is mostly cut out, enough to start sewing anyway. The lovely art in the back is a pastel my sister did for Olivia (my niece). She asked if I would mind making the quilt to coordinate with her pastels. I think the colors are lovely and will make a beautiful quilt. Now to get started sewing...
