Crafter's Weekly - week 3: Sew a bag using fabric you have on hand




This week we were to make a bag/purse with fabric we had on hand. I made a bag that will also be part of The Ruched Collection 2012.  The outside strips were from some fabric I had got a long time ago (when I was younger) to make a purse, that I didn't end up making.  The ruched center strip was just some scrap.  This bag is between the 2 sizes of bags I've made before, and it's for like 8-12 years old (?) probably.  This bag will actually be for a bazaar this year!!  One thing made for the bazaar, now I need to get working on more!!

I want to see what everyone else made - how they used the fabric they had on hand.  Link up below.  The button code is on the side bar.


This week we get to make a child's toy.  There are so many possibilities with this project!!  You can craft children's toys in so many ways:)  And it can be for your children, your grandchildren, brothers & sisters, nieces & nephews, gifts or just for!!

Hope everyone has enjoyed the crafting challenge!!  I know I have and am glad it has made me get something done!!

Oh - just a bazaar around Christmas time this year - yeah, it's a bit early, but never to early to get started:) Hopefully the Artisan Fair again.
