On The Wild Side...

Another day, another bag. I have been trying to make, or at least work on, one bag a day. My spirit is willing to sew at night after work, but my body is weak! Anyway, last night I made this zebra print bag and worked on the denim/blue/yellow bag that I posted the plans for Wednesday.

I may change the ribbon color on this bag from white to black. I didn't have a hot pink ribbon in my ribbon stash, so if I can get to Walmart through the buckets of rain we are getting today, I may pick up a roll and change it to hot pink. What do you think? White, Black or Hot Pink? The person who gets this bag might like all three so she can change the color to match her outfits! :o)




Weekend Plans:

I plan to work on some more bags, but also want to do some quilting. I have quilts in all stages of progress. There is one small quilt that is almost finished. One quilt is in in the beginning stages and I'm ready to start sewing the quilt top.

Also, I'd like to make another Jungle Babies quilt to list in my Etsy Shop. I have some of the Jungle Babies fabric in my stash. I'm not sure what pattern I will use for the new one, but I know it will be machine quilted. Here's the one I made for my grandson, which I hand quilted.



Oh yeah.... I really need to do some housework, especially since last weekend I declared the entire weekend to be for "Snow Day Sewing" and did very little housework.

Your bags are so pretty! I would go with hot pink or lime green ribbon. I played in the snow last weekend, so I hope I can get to some sewing this weekend. Have a great one!

You keep coming up with neat fabrics and combinations!! This is as cute as the black and white last weekend - if not more so!!!

Were you here you could have another snow days sewing weekend. We awoke to 4 inches of fresh snow. It is now transitioning to sleet and freezing rain. Whew!!!

Cute bag... I think the idea of different color ribbon is a good idea. Red would be nice too. But I would probably use black if it were mine... you know, I can't be too flashy!

cute bag - I would prefer a black bow but Hot Pink and Green are the cool colors now, and Turquoise too

and I continue to be impressed with how productive you are~

What if you did make all three colors, and put some Velcro on the back? That way the giftee could change out the bag with her outfits!
