new bags

Some time a go I found a nice, big purple linen tablecloth at a flee marked. Now it is turned into this bag. I folded the fabric and quilted away... The bag is double layered with 6 layers in the bottom. Added some pockets in the same way, and also found a use for these pretty cotton /linen fish. It is soft with a bit of body. My machine was not happy with the thickest layers, but working a bit slower helps.

This next one is also quilted. Love this classic Marimekko fabric, it comes in many pretty color ways. This was not a canvas, so i layered it with 3 layers of batting and a white cotton lining and did a lot of straight line quilting. This one has one big pocket, divided in 2 for cell phone and wallet. The design is my own and have been used in a few bags already.
Love how crisp and clean those pretty flowers look!
