sew & tell - yes, more bags

I'm so sorry I don't have anything exciting and new to show you but more bags.  But I do think they are pretty!

I helped my friend finish her bag up yesterday.  Her day opened up and she couldn't wait to get it finished.  I don't blame her! It's so cute!  She did a really great job.

I love the color combo - I want to name it the raspberry limeade bag!  This is from Patty Young's new Flora and Fauna line.  I love a good border print.  I also took a couple pics of her wearing it so you can get an idea of how big it is, and that it can be worn messenger-style. 

The next two were finished up last Saturday morning.  I was on a roll with my assembly line finish from last Friday and wanted to get them done.

This one is for Vanessa (from when we went shopping together).
I love this Nicey Jane fabric (Heather Bailey).  I can't believe how nice the drape is!  Definitely garment worthy.  I want to make some skirts and dresses now.
The last one is for my neighbor - she's gifting it to a friend who is having a baby in March. 
Erin McMorris, Park Slope.  This is a really fun mod print!  I love the green and hot pink with the navy and turquoise. I've had this for a while and wasn't sure who I was going to make it for.  I'm glad Ellen picked it!
This interior print is one of my favorites!  I have it in orange too.  It reminds my of another favorite circular floral, Henna Garden from Sandi Henderson's Farmer's Market.

So there you go.  I do have some more bags I want to make, including a new one for myself.  But I'll spare you from looking at more bags for a few weeks.  I do have some UFO's to work on....

What have you finished this week?
I will leave the linky up until tomorrow morning. Can't wait to see what you have been working on!

Your bags are always fun to see! Really gorgeous fabrics. I can always see these in bags but rarely give them up for bags :) I may spend too much time saving my fabrics instead of using them. hmmm--you've got me thinking now.

Nicole said...

That Nicey Jane one makes me so happy. Every time I see that fabric I stop and try to come up with SOME reason I need it. Beautiful work, as usual. (A circle skirt in that fabric! Don't you think?! And a yellow sweater. Get on that, would you? I can't wear yellow.)

Dee said...

Makes what I had for breakfast look so blah! I love the fresh, happy look of the bags and the fabrics!

Awesome job Amy! Thanks for hosting Friday Finishes!

Love your bags!!! Nice to know about the Nicey Jane. I have been thinking about making a summer blouse using a sew mama sew tutorial, but I hadn't seen the fabric in person. Now I feel much better about purchasing it!
Blessings,
KT

Love those! Your bags are so beautiful and I love the Nicey Jane fabric! I have a jelly roll that I am trying to decide what to do with.

so very cute, I love the dark blue/turquoise one. I also happened upon your nursery reveal for your friend back in July - SO CUTE!!! Thx again for hosting S&T :)

Valerie said...

I love your bags! Now that is a sew & tell! I hope mine qualifies for the sew & tell! There is a lot of telling, and a little sewing (embroidery) on my posts. Let me know if it doesn't qualify!! Have a great weekend.

Suzanne said...

Very nice bags! I love all the fabrics!

Rene' said...

Amy, never apologize for showing your gorgeous bags! These three are great. I especially love the last fabric you showcased - the Erin McMorris Park Slope. I haven't seen that. Gorgeous!

Candied Fabrics said...

I LOVE the limeade color of that bag! And also that stitching she did - awesome! And that park sope fabric - OMG it's FABULOUS!

I love the pink and green. Beautiful fabrics. The aqua and green is fresh and fun. And the dark with bright is great. It is one of my favorite color combos.

I love all your bags. I saw that you said something about it was your pattern... It is listed somewhere?

Thanks

They are all so cute.

Vicki @ DottyJane said...

Great bags! Love the way you put your fabrics together.

Love that nicey jane bag.... I just bought a cardigan in that same light blue color. I think Easter skirts are in order (since you mention it is garment worthy) Love me some good circular florals! (I need to find that Erin McM. in orange, you know, in case I need it.)

SueWis said...

I absolutely LOVE that border fabric and how you've used it in a bag. I must keep that one in the back of my mind. It's getting crowded back there!

Mary St. John Nielsen said...

LOVE the bags! It's cold and windy here and those bags looking so springy ... just what we need!

CJ said...

CUTE bags!! What pattern are you using?? I have got to try a zippered pocket...soon.

Mrs Moen said...

Beautiful bags and wonderful fabric combos!

Tori said...

Nice bags! I really wanted to participate this week but my quilt blocks are all sitting in a stack and I haven't gotten around to them yet. All I did sewing wise this week was make a soaker for a cloth diaper!

Amber and The Boys said...

I love seeing your bags. That's what really got me hooked on blog stalking you. :)

Michelle said...

Great totes!! I love your fabric choices!!

Jamie said...

Awesome bags! I love the one for Ellen! The fabric is great!

Karen said...

Those bags are gorgeous. I love the Nicey Jane range. I still haven't stopped drooling over it. Lucky I have me some and am planning to make a Thimbleblossom quilt with it.

Mary said...

The bags look great! I'm not even sure which one I like best - maybe the Erin McMorris bag? But I agree that the Flora and Fauna border print looks awesome, and of COURSE I love Nicey Jane! Congrats on three great finishes, and have a great weekend!

Jennifer said...

Cute bags! Love that Park Slope fabric. And I'm so excited I get to share some finishes this week! :)

Aunt Spicy said...

Everytime I think I have bought enough of Nicy Nice I see a new project, like your adorable bag, and then think I might need to buy more! Thanks for the fun chat today!

Nina... said...

I love your tote bags, so pretty!! I LOVE the Flora and Fauna fabric!

Lauren said...

Oh Drats! We lost power in my neck of the woods and I wasn't able to get it until just now and the link expired. Maybe I can save my finishes for next week, hehe. I love all of the purses. I am glad you showed them on a model because I never knew they were that big!

Anne at Film and Thread said...

Goodness - you sew fast! They are all beautiful and each one is so different!

amy smart said...

These bags are so cute. I love the Nicey Jane one esp. I've been eyeing that same fabric. I think I'm going to have to make a matching bag. So cute!

trish said...

I never tire of seeing your bags. You do such lovely work. Vanessa's bag looks like her. :o) She is a lucky girl to receive it. :o)
Sincerely ~ Tricia

I love the new Heather Bailey fabric!

Since the bag resides on Raspberry Ln it is totally fitting to name my bag "Raspberry Lemonade"! Thanks so much for your help on it I love it.

Jenn said...
