BQL February Bag

Can you tell it's half-term? I've posted everyday this week!! It's also meant I've had a bit of sewing time which I've been putting to good use.
There are a few Linus tops that are finished (which I'll show you when they are quilted) and I finished the February Bag (picture) for the BQL challenge. I used some of the fabric I won earlier in the week from Tilde and not 30 sec. after taking this picture it was bag-knapped by DD1. I can see how this is going to go... I'll make 12 bags, but I can't see myself still owning 12 bags at the end of the year!

Well I have to say, I'd have bag napped it too. LOL

Isn't it wonderful when you make something that other's appreciate. She'll be bragging to everyone that her dear mother made it for her!

Love the bag in this beary fabric Jane - I've been mulling over this month's bag as I wasn't that enamoured with the hearts to be honest but seeing yours in a border fabric made me remember a piece I have with paper dolls on it - I might well make it from that - if I do I know one 11year old in our house who may well lay claim to it - it's half term here this coming week so I might just get the chance to work on it then

Your bag is gorgeous, Jane. I too wasn't keen on the hearts, and wondered what fabric I could use. I've certainly got enough novelty fabric to be able to find something!

Lovely bag and gorgeous fabric. I visited your starch basting tutorial and it is very useful to me. Thanks for sharing.

I just love that bag, Jane... "beary" cute. Sorry, I couldn't help myself!

I can see why your daughter would snag that bag - with those cute little bears on it!! Very cute!!

You have a bag napper in your midst, eh? I can see why! It's gorgeous!

Great bag! And BTW, I've tagged you. :-)

You seem to put half term to good use: the nice bag, the beautiful stitcheries (have you seen Bea´s stitchery BOM, very nice too). I like very much your design and colour choice.
20 years ago I went to Llandudno and North Wales for half-term and I remember it as being wet and freezing cold so to watch that man in the river made me shiver!
Take care.

LOL...I can see that your bags will be gone before you ever get to use them, but that's ok -- it's nice to know they are loved!
