Supply Bags

<span class=
Hey, Hey,

Have you gotten the premier issue of Cloth Paper Scissors Gifts? It's super cool! I have one of my favorite things to make as a project in the magazine. They are my hand painted supply bags. I love painting the fabric, sewing the bag, embellishing it, and then making a beaded handle for it. I like projects with lots of different steps. I guess that's why I love mixed media. In the magazine you get a full size pattern for the pencil bag. The instructions and photography are amazing. Cloth Paper scissors always has pretty photographs, I can't believe how good they made all of my bags look.

I know you're thinking those bags below don't look hand painted....You're right. But with all this Happy fabric floating around the studio I couldn't help myself, I had to make some. I love how they turned out and I am thinking these are going to be teacher gifts this year.

I love velvet ribbon, so I added a stripe across the front of the bag. I think it helps show off the supply tag.

I own an entire bolt of this purple flower fabric. You'll be seeing a lot of it, I love it!

I did sandwich some batting between the layers when I sewed these bags from the cotton. I did some fun wavy striped quilting on this one.

I have been making these supply bags for over a year now and everyone has been asking for these tags. I am offering them online now. You can find some on my website, along with my buttons which work great for embellishing as well. You can also find a handful of tags in the Etsy shop. Oh, and if you really just want a bag and don't want to make it, I have you covered in the Jangles Emporium.


If you leave a comment today, you could be entered to win the painted bag and a copy of Cloth Paper Scissors gifts shown in the top photo. I will announce the winner in next weeks holiday newsletter.

Have a great day,
Jennifer

    I don't sew but I love the bags- would make a great bag to carry small portable beading projects in. What great ideas -and I love the stuffed animals- they would be a great gift for a baby shower!! Alice

  7. I have been drooling over these wonderful bags for a long time. I may just need to dust off the old sewing machine, get the Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine, some of your new fabric and make one of my own.
    Wait! Maybe I could win the magazine and a hand-painted bag from Jangels. Maybe I'll just cross my fingers really tight for a week and hope I get lucky!
