More Bags

It started out wanting to make a new bag for my iPad. I did a couple (the two on the right – one pieced, the second crazy quilt appliqué) before the one I have decided to keep.

I made the two smaller bags from leftovers from the other two bags.

I seem to be drawn to blues at the moment although the next quilt idea is based on black/white and an array of red/orange/golden.

I still have to finish the “hitoe” I started about a month ago – it’s sitting on my cutting table so I can get back to it tomorrow.

And then I really should make another dozen mid-size bags to have in my bag stash – for gifts….

Case For New iPad

Got a new iPad last week.

Needed a case for it.

Dug out some scraps; cut batting to the right size (including seam allowances); laid scraps on the batting – pinned them lightly in place then fancy stitched along the edges. Made two sides.

“Top” of Bag

Second Side

Cut out lining. Stitched zipper along one long side, added lining, then sewed sides, and bottom (remembering to open zipper before stitching outside bottom! If you forget to do that the bag is unopenable.)

A basic bag takes less than 15 minutes. This one took nearly 2 hours what with deciding how to place the scraps and doing all the fancy stitching.
