I haven't been feeling very (blog) chatty lately, but I have been relatively productive with my sewing. Just wanted to share a few things I've been working on over the last few weeks. First up, the bags..

Vintage doily bag
This was made with a fantastic emerald green dobby fabric I picked up at a 'fill a bag' event put on by Our Social Fabric in Vancouver. I actually came home with an incredible stash of silks, wool and fine cottons, as well as an organic cotton jersey (at $2/meter!!) which I used to make myself a maxi tank dress with this fabulous pattern

Stripey Tote
This bag is made from a surplus cotton canvas with a denim gusset and a vintage sheet for the pocket. Think this will be my beach bag for the summer if summer ever decides to show up on the West coast.. 

Birdie fold up bag
This was a gift for a friend. It's the Fold-Up Eco Tote from Rashida Coleman-Hale's book I Heart Patchwork. I made one of these totes for myself a while ago and use it all the time. Such a great pattern!

Scooter tote for L
This tote was a gift for my sister. I had this Echino fabric in my stash for a while and love it, but just couldn't figure out what to make with it. Think it worked perfectly for this summer beach tote :)

Drawstring Bag
And finally, a little drawstring pouch made with Jeni's pattern. I actually love making these. They are simple enough that it can almost become meditative, and the end results are super fun with all the fabric combo options. Will definitely be making more of these for Christmas.
