My favorite sewing bag
Since I am still working away on my hexies and appliquing the medallion I thought I would share my favorite sewing bag. This is the "Victoria" bag by Sue Spargo. The center front is done in wool applique, but I must admit I did change a few of the applique shapes from the original. I love this bag cause it seems to go with everything that I wear and is a perfect size. I often take it to quilt guild and I swear people recognize this bag more than they do me! Kinda like how my husband knows our neighbors by their cars.
These are some of the sewing accessories that I use with the bag. My DS sent me the little pincushion and the nametag is actually a pin-on needlecase that I made at an applique retreat. That polka dot thing is a thread catcher that folds up and the flower covered thing is a wool appliqued sewing case. And I love having a matching zippered pouch to hold threads and misc. stuff and this one was just whipped up with leftovers from the bag. I've been using this bag for about a year now and I'm starting to get the itch to make something new, but I don't know, I still LOVE this bag!
