Origami Bag Set: Inspiration

I'm a little behind again this month, with the nice weather we're getting it's hard to spend time inside on such beautiful days!

As usual, there's some great inspiration out there if you're still working on your bags!

I like the black & white with a splash of color on this full set from c_bernard6.


Another beautiful full set from sarahbethe.


This is such a fun spring set from wildwags.

I really love the colors & these little birds on this bag from Sarah at Fairy Face Designs.

The crazy bunnies on these ones from KraftyKraut just crack me up!

And another set from KraftyKraut, minus the bunnies (so they're not quite as great, in my opinion. :) )

The Ruby Star Rising fabrics on this one from Nellie's Niceties are some of my favorite fabrics.

This set from Venus de Hilo is so bright & beautiful!




It seems appropriate that Sara from Sew Sweetness used this fantastic Amy Butler fabric for her bags!

Remember, you only need to complete ONE bag this month to be entered to win this great clutch from Julie at Vibrant Designs.


There have been a few questions about the pattern, I'll address those in a separate post. Remember, you can always ask questions in the Flickr Group, everybody there is great about sharing what has worked for them!

  1. eek - I haven't even started! Time to get to work!

  2. I'm with Mandy! I'm so behind on everything this month, but I think I finally found all my sewing stuff this week. Now to sit down and get cracking! :)

  3. I'm famous!!! Well, at least my bags are! :) What a great idea for a post. Everyone is doing such great work. I love seeing all the colors that everyone chooses!

  4. Yay, thanks for featuring my bag! Need to make some more now looking at those lovely full sets :-)

  5. Bree thanks so much for featuring my bag. :-) I think it's so great that you feature examples of the projects we're working on, it's not only great inspiration for that, but it's great inspiration for pairing fabrics for future projects!!

  6. Oh my those are all so cute! I was goning to just use some scraps I have laying around, but now...I dunno. I may have to go make a purchase ;)

  7. Thanks for including mine, even the bunny-less ones that are sadly not as much fun as the first batch. I'm loving everyone's color and fabric combinations and I'm especially impressed by those who made the full set.

  8. Bree thank you for featuring my bags.


Thank you for your comments, I appreciate each & every one I get. I do try to respond to most (if not all) comments, but that's hard to do if you don't have an e-mail in your profile! :)
