More Fun Crafty Bags

I made several new bags this weekend. Sometimes, I find a smaller project gives me the instant gratification I need to power through a creative block.  Does that work for you?  If not, what helps you when you feel "stuck"?

I made this first zippered pouch to hold all the extra "stuff" I carry in my purse - you know, tissues, band-aids, floss, gum, etc.  It's based on a pattern called "Lollipop bags" by Atkinson Designs that I bought on my California trip

I altered it a bit - didn't add the rose, contrast diamond or strap.  I also added a strip of the lining fabric at the top - and quilted the outside layer - I liked how that looks.  The zipper construction was very unique, and a technique I'll definitely use again.  

I highly recommend the patterns made by Atkinson Designs -- I've purchased and used several, and I'm never disappointed.  I love good design!

This flat one is for holding coupons and receipts.  Super fun design based on a Pinterest pin!
 
The last one is for my Etsy shop - it's the new style of Nook and Kindle cover I've been making.  It has a pocket, and fits most sizes of e-readers, and even the new iPad mini.  I love this gray polka dot fabric - click through here to see the awesome lining.  I also offer these in a variety of fabric choices!



Also, I sense a contest coming around the corner...stay tuned.  It's for something I made that needs a new home.
