I have finally finished The Teardrop Bag by Emmaline Bags. It turned out wonderful and I’m so pleased with it! I made the XL version so I could use it for day trips and pool visits this summer. For the exterior, I used my favorite linen-duck cloth by Robert Allen. The interior and handles were a quilted cotton from our local quilt shop.
I only added a few interior pockets, leaving out the zipper or magnetic closure. Those are extras for my day bags, so a nice large open bag like this will be perfect to cram full with goodies.

I would say it’s perfect for beginner-intermediate sewists and can easily be completed in a few hours.
I also made a little make-up bag to match the Teardrop. It’s a larger variety of the pouch I posted about earlier in the week. I’ll put my cell phone and ID, etc. in it when we head to the pool. Coming up in my little crafty world……working with scraps. What do you do with your leftover fabrics (besides quilting!). With our move in two weeks, I’m cleaning out and organizing. I have 3 huge bins of scrap pieces, so this week between sewing a bag or two I have been going through my bins and getting ideas. What do you like to do with your leftover fabric pieces? Cindy
