Every day Tote Bag

This is supposed to be one of the oldest posts I saved long time before.Today found some time to post .

I recently got to work on The EveryDay Tote by Bagstock .I love the way it turned out ..I used a metallic vinyl on the outside and my First project on my Jeannie 🙂 (my new machine ).It has a zippered pocket and two slip pockets on the inside of the bag  .EDT1EDT2EDT3

The Recessed Zipper for this bag gives a lot of room in terms of space .EDT4EDT5EDT6

I got to win the Blue Ribbon in The Maricopa County Fair 2016 under the Tote bag Category.It is one of the easy and fun bags to make and this one I worked just for the fair as this was my first time .

I hope to finish all my pending posts soon…Stay tuned !!!

Jasmine Sling Bag

I got to test the sling bag pattern released by Namratha of Bagstock sewing patterns.It is always a pleasure to test for her … She is such a  sweet heart and so is her work. She is one amongst the pattern designers whose instructions are very clear,easily understandable and loads of pictures to make sure your working right .This sling bag is one amongst her four patterns.
