A Tale of Three Bags

Can you hear that? My quilts and clothing projects are calling me.  Before I could delve into them however, I needed to finish up the last of the Noodlehead Cargo Duffles I have been sewing for Sophie’s Sew-a-long

C’est la vie: { CARGO DUFFLE SEW ALONG: PART I: choosing fabrics / choisir les tissus }.

I blogged about my first bag here:

Today, I finished the last two bags which I am planning to give to my nieces as birthday presents. They are both in their teens and tend to go on alot of sleepovers. The bags are the perfect size for some PJs and an extra change of clothes. Although I stuck to most of my original fabric choices, I changed up the bottom fabrics a bit to make them more teen worthy. For the first of the two, I used some Botanics prints and treasured pear print scraps.

For the second bag, I used some Charley Harper fabrics (love this line) and some Lotta grey for the bottom and handle. I must be a sloppy sewer because all of my bags were calling for lining and once again I used this tutorial:

Loved making these bags and excited to get them off to my nieces. Now on to some other projects . . .

  1. Wow! I wouldn’t know which one to choose. Love the pear fabric, although red and blue always win my heart! Congrats on those amazing gifts!
