Finally, More Bags

I have been having so much fun with my monster stuffies and accessories that I have neglected my poor bags. A while back - like just before my vacation one month ago - I had cut out bunches of bags. I have gone back to some of my super sized totes (well, to me they seem super sized...almost 2 feet wide and 5-6 inches deep) but with some hand painting on the center panels. I finished one up the other night and another last night (no finished pics of that one yet). I decided not to pleat them all. Reason one - it's a total pain in the butt because of how thick it gets...I don't want to anger the machine. Reason two - I can never decide which I prefer.


These are the pieces for the other 3 bags-to-be....

That last one was finished up last night. The pink (which looks kinda orange in that pic) are the panels that went on either side of the print panels. And I am proud to say that I am thinking ahead & creating simple zip pouches to go with each bag (that goes for most, not just these totes). Okay, I'll fess up to the whole truth on these...while I am prepping all my bags for some kind of accessory (mostly zip pouches), these came about from a miscalculation. I created one too many panels for each bag. Two to four too many actually. Oops. Oh well - good things come from goofs. Like zip pouches and extra pockets inside. Woo Hoo?

absolutely, good things come from goofs! has happened to me many times! And sometimes, I like the goof better than my original design. great fabric and designs, TiLT! Are you planning on making checkbook covers like the one you have on flickr?

I agree with Splendid. Sometimes the oops turns into something much better than the original idea.

I'm lovin' that yellow bag! The fabric you've chosen is awesome! Not much of a surprise though as I seem to love everything that you create!
