In the studio this weekend we had one of the monthly “Sleep in your own Bed Retreats”.  Among all the fabulous projects being worked on there was a lot of bag stitching taking place.

A group of us made the "Tango" bag by Silk Road Creations.  Love the bag!!  It goes together smoothly and we all loved the finished product.  What I personally like about it is my ipad fits in the interior pocket perfectly and there’s plenty of room left for anything else I want to carry.

Here’s a peak at our “Tango” bags.

4 models

From left to right the bag creators are Julie, Terri (me), Jeanie, and Sandy.

Shirley's bag

Shirley’s bag (not pictured in the line up above).  Shirley was leaving and threw her bag over her shoulder and I just had to take a picture.  Is it not adorable on?  Thanks for modeling Shirley!


Did you happen to notice a theme in the bags?  There was a lot of Sweetwater Love going on when we made these bags.  5 out of 6 of the bags were made with fabric by Moda designers Sweetwater.  This happened just by chance, we just showed up with our fabric and ……. you saw what we had!  They’re such fun fabrics and they make great bags.

Julie's diaper bag

Julie not only finished her “Tango” bag but made this adorable "Pocket Parade Tote" by Penny Sturges of Quilts Illustrated.  She made it to be used as a diaper bag. 

Sandy's city zipper

Sandy also finished 2 bags this weekend.  Along with her “Tango” bag she finished this "City Zipper Tote" also by Penny Sturges of Quilts Illustrated.  More on this bag in my next post.

Hope you enjoyed the “Bag Parade” and that we’ve inspired you to give one a try.

Have a great week!  Be sure to take some time nourishing your creative side this week!!

Blessings ~ Terri
