Rag Bags

I just got a scallop square die for my sizzix machine and have put it to good use. I've been busy sewing for an upcoming Boutique. It is located at the fair grounds in Farmington. Here's a little peek at what I've been sewing. I think they are so cute! I've made around 20 of them. The more you wash them...the more ragged they look.

This 3 x 3 size has one pocket in the middle on the outside side of the bag, perfect for keys and/or cell phone. Side pocket on a 3 x 3 bag The 2 x 3 size bags have a pocket on the outside side and inside side, again, perfect for cell phone and/or keys, etc.
Inside pocket on 2 x 3 bag

This is probably my favorite one...denim. SO CUTE! And it frays really well.
The 2 x 2 size is great for gifts, dress up, little items, scriptures, trick-or-treating, Easter bags and more. They have one pocket on the inside.

I just love the Tinkerbell one too.

I even have some gender neutral...

and little boy bags too.
Here are a couple of pics so you can see how a set of standard scriptures fit into the 2 x 2 bags:

As you can see, the pens fit nicely in the pocket on the inside along with your keys and maybe a phone.
A better view of the inside pocket:

If you're interested in purchasing a bag the pricing is as follows:

3 x 3 $25

2 x 3 $21

2 x 2 $17

I will have all my bags at the Boutique in Farmington April 28-May 1. If you want to purchase one before or after the Boutique just contact me by phone, e-mail, or leave a comment and I'll get back to you. I also take special orders if you have something specific in mind.

Next on my major project list is to make a Cinderella dress for Jade's birthday and to design a diaper bag with flap and matching baby blanket for my new little boy that will be arriving in 3 months. I can't wait to share them.

YES that also means some of our current colors will be going away. I’m excited to let you know now so that you will have time to stock up on these colors before they are gone. They will retire at the end of June. Keep in mind that anything using these colors such as paper, products and accessories will also retire so stock up on your favorites now before it’s too late.

Now is a GREAT time to have a party and earn some of these colors before it’s too late.
