I Got A New Bag!

Here's my new bag! This is a big bag, 18" wide by 23" tall and 2" deep. (46 cm x 58 x 5) The straps are long enough to go over my shoulder even if I am wearing a coat (translation: it has to be carried over my shoulder because I'm only 5 feet(152.4 cm) tall! )
I made it big because I will use it to carry quilts around. I am glad Sue "challenged" me to make a new one. This one is much more "Me" than the brown one.

The word "QUILTER" is probably the most conservatively pieced word I have ever made. It is 2-1/2" tall.

Mama's got a brand new bag!! Hee hee! And is it ever a beauty. Yes, MUCH more You! This one is worthy of carrying your quilts.

And wow, that word is so very conservative for you! What happened??

Clare said...

Cool. Really cool! So very very you, apart from the conservative lettering. I bet that's because of the size. I find my letters start getting sensible they smaller they get.

May I cmmission one?
