Bags and Handles

Amish Rainbow Bag

Recessed Zipper Rangoli Design Bag

Chevron Block Bag

Log Cabin Block Bag
Sourcing bag handles at a reasonable price here in Australia can be difficult. Whilst making the bags in the pictures I stumbled across Posh Pendants selling handles at the time on Ebay. These girls sell their handles, at the moment for $5 a pair, at all the major craft events around Australia. This weekend they are at the Textile Arts and Scrapbook Expo at  Southbank in Brisbane. If you go to their website and send an email they will send you a pdf catalogue of their bag handles.
My bags have been made using ITH (in the hoop) quilt blocks from
Kenny Kreations  here in Australia. I have designed the bags and have tutorials for them, in pdf form. If you would like a copy of any of the bag tutorials (not the amish rainbow one at the top as I have not written a tutorial for that)just send me an email  and I will send one to you in return email. By the way, the patterns are FREE. HOWEVER, this does does not include the machine embroidery designs. You will need to buy those from Lyn at Kenny Kreations.
