I love those little bags they made! Can you post the pattern or a how-to?
We made the little zipper bags with scraps of silk kimonos (dark browns, blues, blacks, etc) injected with little bursts of Denyse's fabrics. They were foundation-pieced to the wrong side of a bright patterned fabric, which eventually made for a fun inside to the finished bag. Denyse gave us a template to cut the bag shape from the foundation-pieced bit we'd just made. It was shaped like a fat rectangle which was a bit fatter in the middle (where the bottom of the finished bag would be eventually). We sewed up the sides, then over the two bottom corners to make them square when the bag was "sitting"... If that makes senes? Then zippers went in. I chickened out there - i think denyse sewed mine in! And viola! A funky little bag. My instructions are probably a bit wobbly, esp without diagram... But you could probably find a tute on the web..and just amp it up with the foundation piecing on the wrong side of a cool fabric (for the bag's interior). We made them in about 2hrs. What took the longest was ironing down each bit og kimono/patterned fabric as we did the foundation piecing. Its tempting to skip the ironing, but its worth the trouble as it keeps everything flat flat flat. Hope that helps!
Thank you so much! I'm going to try to make one! They are just adorable.
