Bags, Bags and More Bags

Yes, I love to make zipper bags. Here is what I have been working on for the past week. Watching C and M do this at our sew in was educational and motivating. They are multiplying before my eyes! 

Zippy Bags July 2013
Seems like each one I finish is my favorite! They have a long zipper so when it is unzipped you can see everything you have inside. I love mine that I received in early 2013. The black and red plaid is my man bag version of this bag. I have since found some lime trim. I couldn't wait to make the gray and lime bag! No trim on this one. I have about 6 more cut out to assemble. 
 
My favorite Zippy bag.
The black and white stripe is part of the fabric. I didn't add trim as it would interfere with the design. They are supposed to be flowers with leaves but stem and the leaves ended up on the bottom. A friend has already claimed this one so I will be making another one for me. 

The back of my favorite.


Alan and Tiffany's peonies in bloom in Fort Collins. They have these lining both sides of his house. I don't remember these flowers as a child. I wonder if they grow in North Carolina? Why didn't we have some?



These are the ones I wanted to see bloom while I was there. They opened the week after I left. I think these are the ones he told me were no longer available for sale. I guess they are like roses, they keep coming out with new ones every year.

Happy Quilting!
