Boho Bags

Have you noticed all the bloggers that
are creating boho bags?
Pat Winters has some lovely ones,
Cathy created one as well,
so nice of her to point out her
errors, so we would not make
those same mistakes.
I kept looking at these bags,
thinking I could make one.
But, all those different fabrics,
where would I find them?
You know I have quite a fabric
stash of my own.  Could I find
just the right fabrics to use?
Then I happened to notice this:
A kit available in her etsy shop!
I have long adrmired her buttons,

she handpaints each one!
The boho bags were great
lots of fabrics and trims!
Here is the kit I purchased
When the kit arrived Gerry had included one of her
handpainted buttons!

Gerry also has a great tutorial on creating a
boho bag on her blog.
Ladies, start your sewing machines!
Let the fun begin.
Will post my completed bag soon!

Love to all,

Deb, I have noticed all the bags and just love everyone I've seen. I am nearing completion of a project and my eyes keep looking over toward my fabrics to see if some fabrics are waiting to become a Boho bag and of course they are. My list keeps getting longer! Will I live long enough to check everything off as completed and to use up all of my stash? I would say "no" on both counts! Take care, Connie

Those bags are really gorgeous. They are all great. But is it easy to make such bags? Does it need a lot of sewing skills?
