So, I've been paper piecing with some of the fabric Jean Martha sent me...as much as it killed me to cut into them! I'm totally experimenting with paper piecing and wondering if I really love it. I think I do. The added time to bag making will take some getting used to.
This is a square I just made with a variety of fabrics.
Here is a diagonal pieced bag I'm working on. This could be the front. Or the back. It is up to you. Bobby wanted to add a strip that didn't match at all...so we went with yellow. I like it.
Here is the front/back of the same bag. This I just sewed pieces together and then cut to the same size.I really really like the yellow added to this.
This is a bag I just finished. I had mountains of this daisy fabric that I bought in Mangum, Oklahoma last summer and only bought it because it was mega cheap. Not the best reason to buy something. But I like how it turned out. I paper pieced a couple of squares then cut them up and reassembled for the center of the bag.
