Bendy Bags, My New Love...

Oh my goodness...
I have a new obsession...
Bendy Bags!
I've made loads...
One hour each now...
not that I was rushing...
that's all the time they take...
Really... One Hour!
The pattern recommends no quilting, I have no idea why and soon I will make at least one with quilting, well.... if only to discover why they advise us not to quilt! ha I love quilted things so, why would't I try it?
The pattern has us finishing the inside seams with zig-zag stitching... I tried that and I don't really like the way it looks so I am covering my seams... doesn't take any longer really. I have also started to add a little light interfacing... PMS... Pleasing My Self!!!

Can you guess who I made this one for?
One perfectly topical Bendy Bag for the aeroplane obsessed Helpful Hubby to keep his Sat Nav in... I gifted it to him, then took it back two minutes later because I want to show it to everyone who comes to my lovely little, yet very well stocked, Patchwork and Quilting shop!!!

Okay, why is it called a Bendy Bag?

Angie said...

Because it gets bent in half in the making process and the zip ends up bent around a corner...

Since I cannot come to your shop for classes (even though I would love to) is there any way to get the pattern or directions for those Bendy Bags?

BTW, your blog, pictures, promotion of your class members' achievements, all, is most interesting and entertaining. FYI I live in Littl Rock, Arkansas, USA. A quilter wanna-be!
