Bagging it!

So the other day cruising through Pinterest, I found a blog link to make these adorable little box bags. The link to the pattern and directions is here: Three Bears Blog.  She gives great instructions and plenty of pictures to get you through.  I'm a pretty new sewer and I whipped out six of these in one day.
 Recently I spent two weeks in South East Alaska with a group called F.O.S.E.A. (Friends of South East Alaska) on a mission trip.  While there I found these wonderful batik fabrics in a small quilt shop in Sitka.  Once I saw the pattern for these bags I knew this fabric would be perfect for the little bags.

This one is my favorite and it's going to my BF who also went on the trip.  She had a wild encounter with a halibut on a fishing trip we took and I thought maybe she'd like a little reminder to remember that she conquered that fish.

Here is the inside of the bag.  I made a few adjustments to the pattern from the blog.  I added fusible web and adhered muslin to the back of the fabric to give the bag more stability.  I also added the little tabs on the side with key rings so you can hang this bag on the outside of a purse, or attach your keys to it. I'll be keeping one for myself and the other will go off to other members of the F.O.S.E.A. Posse.

Welcome to Imagination Droppings

Welcome to Imagination Droppings!
On this blog you'll find me showcasing the things that I create in my daily life.  I have so many ideas for crafty/creative/artsy ideas, and I want to share them with the creative world.  I'll also admit some of these droppings will be for sale on my Etsy shop.  But a lot will also be just things I create on a day to day basis. 

The apple change purses about are for sale in my Etsy shop.  They are hand crocheted in cotton yarn, and zippers are hand stitched in.  The purses are about 4 1/2" high and great for keeping change or other small items corralled in your purse.  I think these would also make great gifts for the special teacher in your child's life.

Thanks for stopping by!
