Quilted bags



I went to a fantastic quilting store with my mom a few weeks ago. It in Henniker, NH and called Quilted Threads. Everything they have is amazing and it is all displayed so well. I got the pattern to make these 2 bags there and the fabric. They have this realy cool interfacing called P72, which is super stiff. They totally hold their shape. The only problem is after the zipper, you need to sew down the left over bulk so zipping is easier. I broke 8 needles trying to sew one side. It was a frustrating day. But, now my zipper selection is restocked and I am going to try a thinner interfacing on the next back. We'll see. The little white turtle is a zipper fob I made with some beads that match the daisy colors.
