Three more calico bags made as Christmas presents. There were 5 in the set that I made, but unfortunately I had wrapped the first two before I remembered to take pictures.

I was quite pleased with the way my first set of calico bags turned out so when another birthday presented itself I thought I’d make another. This  bag is less wide than the earlier ones – though the same depth. The bag can fit an A4 box file in it so should be good for carrying folders and documents or a small grocery shop.

The area for decoration is smaller than on the earlier batch, but I filled about the same amount of space with the design but it didn’t look crowded. For the design I went for applique again. I’m getting better at using the machine’s blanket stitch to out line the shapes. The flowers are from the same templates that I drew up for the Sarah bag in the first batch.

I’d like to say that reuse of some design elements and practice made making this bag quicker than making the others but it still took all of a Sunday.
