making homemade

My first finish of the year!  These are gifts for friends, as we decided to have our holiday party/gifting after the holidays and everyone was in town again.  [best decision!]  Once I got settled back into my usual schedule it was fun to go through my stash and play with fabric combinations.  I picked each combo with a specific friend in mind, so I'm hoping they'll love them as much as I do.

I made three of Aneela's Oval Box Bags and a large sized Open Wide bag from Noodlehead.  I've made each of these patterns several times before, so it wasn't too difficult to manage.  The inside fabric of each oval matches the zipper color.

Linking all the links!  I'll be putting these up at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it Friday. These are my January goal for the 2015 A Lovely Year of Finishes, linking at Fiber of All Sorts and they are on my Q1 list for the 2015 Finish-Along, linking at On the Windy Side.  While we had snow flurries Thursday, it's supposed to be in the mid 50s over the wknd so I'm off to soak in some sunshine!


  1. Ooh, love that little purple Kaffe Fassett print bag with the hot pink zipper! Your friends are going to love those gifts.

  2. They look really cool, well done! Such cool fabrics and colours.
