I also have been working on making some small bags using some Honeybun strips and left-over jellyroll strips. The pattern is included in the honeybun two roll box set. It makes a very cute bag but I don't like wasting the beautiful strips on the inside of the bag so I adapted it to use 1/2 the strip-set and a coordinate piece to line the inside. You get two bags from a set of 10 instead of just one. The Jellyrolls work as well you just need 5 of them to make two bags. I think these will make really nice gifts to have on hand for special people.
I plan on keeping one to use for my hand applique supplies. I may even play with adding a pocket inside.
Well to all of you Mothers out there I hope you have a great day celebrating with those you love and love you. Spend your day doing whatever it is that gives you the most pleasure.
As for me, I will be in my studio for part of the day sewing and then enjoying dinner with family.
