Bag Ladies

Quilt Camp wasn't just about quilts.
The ladies were making so many bags that my camera could not keep up.
Here is a sampling of just a few:

Patty was quite creative as she fussy cut a panel for the outer pocket of her bag.

Just puts you in the Christmas mood, doesn't it?

Nice interior with plenty of pockets


Recycled jewelry used for the zipper pull.
Nice job, Patty.

Lynette might have to take the title of Queen in the Bag Ladies division.
She made one bag after another.

I especially liked this ergonomic bag made with batiks.
Pattern: Butterick B5054

Front straps are adjustable.

So many other bags being displayed around the room,

with beautiful fabric combinations.

I sat next to Pam who made over a dozen of these zippered bags out of fabric scraps.
She free motioned quilted the fabric onto batting before cutting out the front and back section.

I kid you not.
The name of this pattern?
Big Bottom Bonnie Bag
Maybe I should be grateful they haven't named a bag after me as of yet:)
