Quilted Bags and Totes Book! Re-created Totes!

For those of you who own my Quilted Bags and Totes Book, you'll be excited to see that I've re-created several of the bags in the book! If you don't have the Quilted Bags and Totes Book, well... you'll want one, now!

Rikki's Bag is a favorite in the book. I changed the look by using some prints Brenda Pinnick sent to me. Her fabrics are to die for and need to be in your stash! The collection is called, "Opulance" by Henry Glass & Co.

As you can see, her fabrics make a great looking bag! The size is perfect for make-up or any other objects you want to keep organized. Great gift idea!  5.5" x 8" x 5"

Aren't these just great Opulent prints by Brenda Pinnick!!! I love them all!

Allie's Purse is on the cover of Quilted Bags and Totes. This bag is made from printsndy Pierce. They collection is called,"Decora Flora by Mitzi Paxwell" her daughter's imaginery friend. (so cute) and made by Camelot Cottons.

Another great bag, notice the use of trims! I love trims and this bag shows them off! 8.5" x 15" x 3"

Aren't these great prints by Mindy Pierce! I love how the colors all work together!

Here is another bag I re-created from fabric I received from my friend, BJ Lantz. Her line is called, "SoHo" by Studio e. Just LOVE it! The Amber Bag makes up very nicely in many different types of prints, the first print (in the book) is more fun and bright. This one is more traditional and classic!

Amber's Tote is a GREAT bag for gifts! It is 16" x 12" and sew easy to make! Notice the use of trims, again!

You can buy a signed copy of the book by clicking on Books for sale, above.

This is only a portion of the SoHo collection. Find the rest of her fabric collection and others on BJ Lantz's website.

I hope you enjoyed seeing new ways to make bags! Please contact me if you are interested in my Quilted Bags and Totes book!

Have a great day!
