Mad old bag challenge - bag 3

Tuesday night saw the making of bag 3 in my Mad old bag challenge, the larger of the makeup pouches.  I used some steel Essex linen and some of my Washi fabrics to make the Style C pouch from Oh. Franssons Perfect Zip bags pattern.

Love this random curvy style of quilting
Zippers are getting better - not perfect yet!
Spotty lining again!
I really like how this turned out.  I used the hera maker for the random curves, which turned the fairly boring reverse of the bag into something more interesting to look at. This is the third time I have made something from this pattern and this is my best effort yet.  I haven't quite perfected zippers but I'm getting there.

Now I seem to have run out of the easy bags, the next challenge is the Ruby.  If you see a blue cloud over the weekend, it probably originated from my potty mouth ;-)


  1. Beautiful! The zippers look perfect enough to me!

  2. Lovely - I wish my zippers were half that good! I definitely need to try my Hera marker - fab random curves.

  3. I'm with Hads. The zip looks perfect to me too.

  4. Zips looking pretty fab from here! Great no 3!! Like the random curves too - must try that.

  5. that's fab! Most impressed :-D

  6. LOVE this little pouch. I really want to try making a pouch but zips give me the fear. If my zip ends didn't look as perfect as yours I'd have to turf the project and sulk for a week.

  7. Oh my goodness - perfect ends, but let`s not forget the rest, which looks pretty perfect to me too.

  8. love the curvy quilting, zippers look pretty perfect too!

  9. Hello Kelly

    The zip looks perfect too.
    I have been really missing you over on NMs, so I am really glad to find you here in blogland. I have just cottoned on to this whole other online world - its fun.
    See you are also taking part in the Siblings Together, so I might bump into you over on Flikr now too (hopefully).
    Kind regards
