Sew & Tell Friday


Poochie Bag
Originally uploaded by QuiltyBee
Do you think a newly turned 6-year old girl will like this? It's her birthday tomorrow, and I was looking for bag patterns to try--this is the Poochie Bag from Happy Zombie! She also had a cute variation at Moda Bake Shop for trick-or-treat/gift bags. This is such a great pattern!

I am lucky enough to also have 4 nieces (the rest of us all have boys), so this year for Christmas they are all getting bags.

The poochie bag is so very easy to follow--although I admit I didn't quite follow the directions (I find that nearly impossible). I added batting for a bit of firmness. Otherwise, I tried to do exactly as Happy Zombie so clearly described. I really like the results and will spend some time today digging through my stash for some more baggy collections--3 fat quarters is all I need for each one!

If you'd like to join Sew & Tell, just visit Amy! Have a great weekend!

Gratitudes:
Healthy (relatively) men in the house
Most of a day off work
Fun with fabric (plus I received my STUD swap from Julie--more about that later!)

That's a darling bag! If this 6 year old is anything like my almost 4 year old, I'm sure she will LOVE it!

That is a darling bag, indeed. My 16-year old would love it - I'm sure your 6-year old will!

If you find the 6 yo doesn't like it, throw a gift card at her and mail me the bag! LOL

I love this bag!!! I'm sure your six year old gift recipient will love it. Lucky nieces you have!! I had seen the smaller version that Happy Zombie showcased with Halloween fabric. On my list of "to makes". Enjoy your weekend.
