Jean Bag & FQ Bag

Well, I haven't done much sewing lately, but I do have a couple of items to show you.

First is a jean bag lined with cotton fabric, and a couple of zip pouches that I made to go with the jean wallet I made.

I'm also working on a fabric/quilted mini tote to go with this as well .. worked a little on it last night, like 5 minutes, but I do hope to work more on it today.

Also - a couple of days ago I tried out this pattern from .....
I made mine from a 12" square of fabric, and it ended up being about as big as my hand .. say 4-5 inches square-ish.  I used some scrap ribbon for the handle and to cover up the not so pretty seam.

It's kind of hard to see but there's another pocket in front. The print blends and you can't see the edge of the pocket.

I recommend the FQ bag pattern, it's very simple but very versatile too.  I'm going to do a larger one as well.  I've seen one done from a 40" square .. I think that would be very kewl!

Okay, here's the honest truth, I guess it's not really a FQ bag because it's from a 12" square of fabric .. lol, and the Ribbon wasn't exactly scrap, I think it was the two pieces cut off of one of my shirts, you know, those ribbons that are supposed to help the shirt hang on a hanger correctly? I always cut them off because they tend to come our and say "hi" when I'm wearing the shirt! But I saved them because I didn't want them to go to waste :)

Love your recycled denim bags and the zippered pouches are a great way to use smaller pieces of denim. Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog. Best wishes,
