Nimble Thimbles All Day Bag Class







A few action shots from our Nimble Thimbles Bag Sewing Class! It was a great day with lots of nice ladies with one bag more exquisite than the next! Here is our end picture where all of us showed off our bags.

I am in the back row in red...I can only name about half of these ladies but I hope to one day know them all that well.


And here is a close up of the two bags I made. The large one is called "Reversible Tote Bag" and I made it from fabric I had originally bought for my own apron...but then I changed my mind so it was perfect for this. The smaller one is by This and That and is called the Clutter Bug" bag. I used Denyse Schmidt fabric that I have been hanging onto for a long time...finally cut into the charms and I really like how it turned out. The top band is from the same line but just looks like it is pieced.

And tomorrow is back to full time work...so my sewing will slow down some :( Also, Kathy and I have decided to join Weight Watchers and I am back on my bike. I hope to be posting a little note with pounds lost going up as my weight goes down. You know what they say...if at first you don't succeed, try, try, again!
