I have been doing a lot of thinking about my next quilt and other smaller projects I’d like to do. I really want to use some curve piecing for interest in learning how and what it looks like. I was reading through the list of quilter blogs.com updates the other day and found someone (unfortunately, I can’t remember whose blog it was) who had used this method to make some bags. It got me thinking – I need to get onto my sewing machine to add some new bits to my etsy shop, I even thought about trying out some curve piecing in oilcloth, but that might be just a bit too adventurous. Although I still might give it a go.
‘The Book of Bags‘ by Cheryl Owen was put in my hands at the library – I had to bring that home – There are 30 projects to choose from and with a quick flick through it looks like there are quite a few fairly straight forward projects. It has some good information about tools for bag making and her choice of bags to make include good tips on embellishing bags, making a bow bag, adding bag feet and purse frames too. All very worthwhile:)
