Scrappy Friday - last bag!

 Over the last few weeks I have been organising my boxes of colour coded fabric scraps, and also making myself a few bags using these coloured scraps!  This week I finished my last box, and last bag!! Yippee!! - great to finish a job, and see all my scraps now neatly folded into their boxes so that I can finally see what I've got easily!

So here's my final - green - bag!



A couple of pockets inside...


And a ruffly flower on the front for decoration!


So now I've got a bag to match every outfit!  For those of you who missed the last ones, here's the other colours...
Red.


Yellow.


Blue.


And purple.


Not bad for bunch of scraps!!

So now that I've sorted my scrap boxes, my next project is to use up all the old clothes that I've saved to upcycle!  The piles are growing and it's time to stop planning and start doing!! 
So May is the month - every day I will post an upcycling clothes project!
I've decided that committing to post about it every day on here, will be my best motivator to stick to the job and get it done!!
Why not join me - stop by any day in May to see what I'm upcycling, and link up your own clothes upcycling projects on my dedicated page:


 
Have a lovely weekend - and hope to see you back soon!

I'll be linking this post to many of the wonderful blog parties whose pretty buttons are on the bottom of this page.

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog and following me. I love the purses/bags. I have several epatterns I bought to make some purses for my shop. I have never made one before but I have confidence in myself that if I put my mind to it I can make just about anything.
