3 different bags

Good Arfternoon, it is cold, it is wet, so I am staying indoors. Yesterday I made two fully lined bags by following yoootooob videos, today I have made another one. There are several different ways of constructing them. Makes a change from the simple shopping bags that I normally make. This one has a plain white lining and is 13 inches by 12 inches. 
This one has a floral lining and straps with a trim around the top. It is 12 inches by 14 inches. 
The first one I made has a plain red lining with a floral trim around the top. It is 15 inches by 16 inches. 
If you want to make the last one here is the video on how to do it. Make notes in the beginning on the sizes of fabric needed, then stop start the video as you move through the stages. It's simple to follow. 
Now I'm going to look for another video to make another bag. This is why I don't make sewing tutorials, there are plenty out there to choose from. No need to re invent the wheel. Are you keeping busy on this Bank Holiday Monday?

  1. Beautiful bags, Ilona, I especially like the first one.

  2. Love your bags Ilona. I made a few to sell/gift just over a year ago. I can't remember the last time I bought a plastic bag :)

  3. Those bags are beauties, my favorite is the first one, I love floral patterns.

  6. Loving the bags Ilona.Like Lesley,in the above comment,I cant remember the last time I went shopping with a plastic bag.It must be years ago and I know for a fact that I have never bought one.I really cant see why people still do this.My lovely friend Flis..who always reads your blog...gave me a London themed shopping bag a couple of weeks ago and I use it daily.Well yesterday was a complete washout here in Leicester.I got drenched and the wind was howling.I had to go running down the street as my 60s cap took off..much to the amusement of some builders who were sat in their van,lol.I gave up with the umbrella and just battled through it!.It looks like its going to be the same today so I might do a bit of dusting..or then again..I might not,lol.xx
