No more dilly dallying - it's time to show off the Dilly Bags I made recently...
Judy Newman's Dilly Bag pattern made making these bags a breeze. I think you can guess that I had a lot of fun picking out the fabrics.
Introducing the Red Top bag
with it's fun heart circle bottom.
It has happy word lining to whisper lovely things to the projects it contains, and a delicious pocket.
By chance a lot of the feature hexagons on this bag have friends on them. A pair of children, a circus ringleader with his horse and there are some others on the other side too. As I sewed these hexies together I came to think of it as the Friends Bag.
This little teapot says it all.
I love the whizz fizz summery colours of the other bag.
It features happy things like bike riding and little scottie dogs, spots, dots and flowers.
and a fussy cut flower underneath.
Hidden inside is green leafy lining and more cute pockets.
I couldn't decide which ribbon to use so I used a combo.
The bags are the perfect size for a carrying around a hand crafting project and it's notions , but it's tricky to be able to tell the size of things in photos sometimes so to give you an idea Rachaeldaisy Barbie offered to stand in as a model.
If you're in the mood for a story here's a link to the Colourful Hexagon Adventure that I wrote last year inspired by these hexagons.
This Giveaway is now closed - Congratulations to Dzintra, Queen Of the Armchair.
