Bow Tucks Bag #5

I finished everything but the handwork on bow tucks bag #5 today. This is the red one. I am trying different battings, etc in them. I used fusible fleece on the back of the front and back and the pockets, but I used a craft fuse for the lining. The craft fuse is pretty stiff, which gives this bag lots of shape. I will probably continue to use the craft fuse for the linings. The good thing is that it is less expensive than the fusible fleece. (grin) Anyway, here is the red bow tucks bag.
I made a booboo on it. Look closely at the pocket. I sewed it on before I quilted it. I started to take it off and quilt it, but I really sewed it on good. LOL Kevin says it will be fine like this, so I left it.
Here it shows the ties.
Here is the inside.
Now all I have left to do on this one is whip the bottom of the lining closed and sew the button on it. I need to get some more buttons with shanks. Sewing those on is my least favorite part of the whole bag. I am horrible at sewing those shanks on. I have the the next one cut out and ready to go.

I lined them all up for a photo shoot. What do you think? Of course the fall one has a new home now. (grin)
We have been having lovely fall weather. No frost yet, but I'm sure we will have one soon. They are forecasting lots of rain this weekend. That should bring lots of leaves down from the trees. It has been nice during the afternoon this week, yet not warm enough for those nasty bean bugs to be on the move. I could live with this weather year around. (grin)

Everyone have a great day. Thanks for visiting and please come again.

Great bags Winona!! I can't decide if the red (my favorite color) or the green one with the dots on the top are my favorite....I guess I love them both :0)

Love the bags! I haven't tried to add pockets to the inside yet. We're to have a freeze tonight so that will be the end of the garden. It's pretty much done anyway.

Great bags! The blue is my favorite. How hard was it to add pockets? We've had great weather also, but storms are predicted for the first of week, so have been picking last of tomatoes, raking leaves. All that fun stuff! Nola

G'eve Winona ~ They are ALL absolutely lovely, so like your fabric choices.

No freeze here yet, unusual not to have one by now. Hope it stays gone for a good bit yet ...

Have a great autumn eve ~
TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

Those bags are wonderful.If I had to have a favourite it would have to be the brown and green spot one.

I love your bags. Will they be gifts or do you sell them? I think the red is still my favorite.

Bren said...

I agree with Cripsy...the red and the one with dots on the top are my favs....though that blue is gorgeous too and the other one with the cups on top....oh well...they are ALL beautiful!!!
We have had frost here for a few weeks. Rain expected for us too. It got down to 31 one night! I STILL have not turned the furnace on!
