Some weeks ago when I was showing a lot of new drawstringpurses at our quiltmeeting, I got a question from one lady. What are you doing with all these purses, do you really need so many??????
Oh yes, I really need so many and I need more too !! Because I hate plastic bags.
I decided to make a quick photo tour around in the house this morning.
At the doorknob in my sewingroom there are always hanging a lot of drawstringpurses. So easy to grab when I am going away. I use them to store small sewingprojects, bits and bobs when I am going to the cabin or what ever needs to be brought along in my suitcase or bag.
And this one I got from a dear friend for Christmas. I love it, and right now it is hangning in my sewingroom and stores a little Christmas project.
This pink purse is storing my GPS. And the other one stores my cellphone battery chargers.
This is also a gift from a dear friend. It stores my tea lights.
And a quilter do not need one toiletpurses, she needs several. One big, one small, one for this and one for that. Agree????
This little bag is just hanging in my sewingroom. I made it just because it is so cute and makes me smile when I look at it.
And my sewing bags. Just love them all, and I need more. Each one is storing one ore several projects. Don’t laugh……I admit I have A LOT of projects going on. The red one to the right is storing a lot of my sewing tools like scissors, needles, pens aso.
Been sewing a lot the last days/weeks. I guess you have noticed I have mad a lot of drawstring and toiletpurses lately. Those are going to be sold at a marked in august. If not they will be great gifts. Always someone who wishes for a purse or a bag. And my sewingroom is a total chaos right now. Oooooops, do you spot a little bag in this photo too. I have a lot of these because they are so handy storing stuff. Not to mention boxes, I guess you see the two beneath my little ironingboard. I have no number on tin boxes I have in my sewingroom, but that’s perhaps another post.
Last night when having trouble sleeping I was thinking of
remembering a little purse I started sewing several years ago. And as a good quilter I had to look for it (at four o clock in the morning). Luckily I found it at once even though my sewingroom is a total chaos I know where everything is LOL LOL
It was originally a purse from a japanese book, but as I could not find this book I decided to sew it the way I have made a lot of purses lately. This is the front……….
…..and this is the back. I love the way it turned out. It looks quite big here on the photo, but it is a small purse 7x7 inches. Just perfect for something LOL
Some days ago I received Annie Downs new book The Simple Life. And in the book there is a pattern for a cute little zippered case. I just had to start making it yesterday, because I really need one like this!!!!!!!
Do you have a lot of purses, bags and zippered cases?? And what do you store in yours?? Do you need just one or do you love to have as many as you can?? Make a blogpost like this where you show your purses and small bags.
And of course there is a prize for someone who comes back to this post and comments with a link that they have made a blogpost about Bags…..and more bags. You have one week to make a blogpost, and I will draw a winner in the morning june 30th . So the winner will be announced in my first blogpost in Tour de Fibre.
Note to myself; you really have to make that blogpost about Tour de Fibre soon.
And the prize will be……
a little toiletpurse of course!!
Saying for today:
Take, if you must, this little bag of dreams,
Unloose the cord, and they will wrap you round.
