Small, smaller, smallest Blog hop

Hello All,

Welcome to the small, smaller, smallest blog hop, put on by Carol on Just Let Me Quilt.
 Thanks Carol, for another fun blog hop!

I took the words to heart and made three items, progressively smaller. I enjoy making new bags, and this blog post is devoted to a few of them.

This is my original purse pattern. I love this pattern, it has just enough pockets for me. It's not too small, but not large at all.




Here is the inside, a place for my wallet (in the first few purses' I've made like this, I put a zipper on the middle pocket for my wallet, but left it off this time), a few small pockets for a phone/cards/etc. and plenty of larger pockets for what-have-you.



I don't carry a lot around with me in my purse, so this is just perfect for me. I quilted the outside of it this time too :)



My next project is a sew together bag. This is such a great project bag!




I've made several of them, for friends and family. This time I finally made one for me. Isn't it colorful and fun!



I've stuffed mine full of embroidery stuff. I don't embroider a whole lot, but I do enjoy having a project around to sew on. Especially to Drs appt./etc.



And since I had a new purse, I certainly needed a new wallet :) My big Sis had this wallet, and I admired it, so she bought me a pattern. This is the Grommet Wallet, by Amy Barickman.



The original pattern has a strap to hold it together, but I don't like it, so I left it off.
Its very roomy, with plenty of space for cards. A place for bills, one for recipts and one for coins.



I hope you like my projects :) Thanks so much for stopping by and seeing what I made. Make sure to visit the other Ladies sharing this day with me.

  1. I love all of your small-smaller projects. They are beautiful and practical -- win-win! I was also drawn to the paper pieced tree skirt in your header. Do you have a pattern for sale for that?

  9. I love your bags, I love all the pockets to, I'm not someone who carries a lot around in my purses either and normally I usually just grab my wallet and go. I only take a purse when we travel. I wouldn't want a strap on a wallet either, you'd always have to be tieng it, I'd rather button or snap it back into a closed position. but I do like the pattern for the wallet.

  11. Great projects; so many useful things, too. Your Sew Together bag is really cute; I've made one so I know they are a bit of a challenge. Now the wallet...perfectly wonderful...I need one and must get busy.

  12. Very pretty projects, my friend! Love the bag and matching wallet. Just right for toting those essentials. I do not like a big bag either. The embroidery pouch fabric is so pretty. Looks sew useful. You do such a great job sewing these bags up. Thank you for sharing in the hop ... :) Pat

  13. I'm a big fan of that sew together bag, really like the fabric too.
    And while I'm here, I agree with you, we need more Billy Grahams in
    this old world.

  17. Very pretty! I wish I were a bag kind of girl. I just carry a wallet now, so I'm afraid I'd forget to keep up with a bag. Love yours though.

  18. Dorian, your attention to detail is amazing! I've always admired women who make their own bags and wallets, but I haven't attempted it myself. Yours definitely look professional and so well done!
