Bags Completed.

About a month ago Dawn was offering for sale the pattern to make a "Baseco Mahal Kita" tote. It was to raise money for the people of Baseco. I am sure you can still buy one.

My DD2 had given me these scraps of fabric and I thought it would be perfect to make the bag. Instead of the embroidery blocks I used butterfly blocks.

Today I also completed some more Rice Bags for Hiam Health in Dili.

I can pop them into the mail tomorrow.


  1. What a nice bag! Great idea too to have the money from the pattern donated to help others.

  2. Oh now I really like this bag!!!
    Good project. A win win for all!

  3. Oh What a really nice bag had you made. Gorgious.
    greetings Dorine

  4. I spent yesterday making the same bag. Hopefully I will finish it today when I go and buy some matching cotton to sew the handles. Isn't it always the way that you own lots of cotton but not one that is the right colour. I love your colour arrangement.

  5. Great bag,love the scraps you used and the butterflies add that special touch. Happy sewing.

  6. Fabulous bags Maria and I love the use of the butterflies! Very effective and looks great!

  7. I am waiting for mine?? would love that bag in my colours .. it lovely up close.

  8. I love the bag, it turned out great....I see you are doing the pillow swap too...I sure love my swaps.....

  9. Hi Maria

    Hope you are well and creative. :)

  11. I just wanted to say thank you for stopping by my blog today! Tomorrow Lynne is taking me out to a Quilt Ralley , so I am attempting to go to bed early. But, you know how it is - when you want to sleep -it doesn't want to co-operate.

    Best wishs to you for a wonderful day.
