January has always been a month where I like to catch up on projects I always plan on doing but never seem to have the time.  So far, I have made on of three block of the week mystery quilt kits I purchased last year.  Yes, I love kits.  But this week, I sewed with our own patterns.  We had two new bag patterns introduced at market.

The first is The "Mary Jane" Bag

And The "Lucille" Bag.

They are great bags.  I wanted to take the patterns and play around with different fabrics, or in this case, LAMINATES.  Don't you just love Laminates.  I do, but other than a rain coat, what am I going to make with them.  I decided that these two new patterns might just be perfect.  I have used laminates a little, but the new ones are getting softer and softer.  Right now I love Michael Miller laminates.  They are so easy to work with.

So,  here are my new laminate bags.  First, Mary Jane, made out of Moda Laminates. 

And my favorite, Lucille.  I got two different laminates for this one.  One for the inside and one for the outside.  I loved them both so much I couldn't decide which one to use for each side, so my husband designed me a magnet closure that allowed me to make the bag reversible.  I get two bags in one.

Cute Tie Accents

The houndstooth is my favorite, still need to add the ties to it though.  What do you think, cute huh.  As always, pictures don't do them justice. 

Hopefully you are having a great start to a new year. 

Oh, and before I forget, WE ARE STARTING A NEW GIVEAWAY ON SUNDAY, so check back and see what else we have been up to.

Have a great week.
