New Bag Design & Fabric Won

I wanted to share these fat quarters I won from A verb for keeping warm.

Thanks Kristine! Sometimes there's nothing better than a mailbox full of some new fabrics to keep you busy when the day's otherwise been hectic and crazy :)

 I also wanted to show this new bag design I'm working on. 
I like this one a lot and think that since this is a sort of prototype, I'll be keeping it for me ;)


It reminds me of a bell. It was inspired by a pattern shape you'd make for a coin purse-you know the kind with the clasp? Except I didn't have any clasps on hand and I had to modify it a bit to fit a zipper and go around the curvy parts... It's bigger than a coin purse but smaller than most clutches I guess. You could use it as one though, or as a bag to go inside your bag.
Off to squeeze in an hour of making at least one more today...

What are you working on?

My sewing machine is still away, so not a lot! The bag looks really pretty - love the fabric, too.

Yay! So happy to hear you received your fabric and that you like it. Can't wait to see what you make with it.
