Same DNA

Hello folks,

It's a lazy day in Singapore. The sky is overcast and very grey all day long. It is also a public holiday. Today is Hari Raya Puasa. So to all my muslim readers,
Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri
Me mom told me once that she observed that it rains every Hari Raya Puasa. She has no statistics to back it up just her memory. Well, it hasn't rained today so she might be proven wrong. But the sky is quite dark at the moment so there's still a chance. If it doesn't rain, she'll definitely get a call from me tomorrow. Haha we do this every year.

I spoilt the day by making it a Clean The Flat Day. Fortunately the kids were very cooperative and did their fair share. There are only 4 of us living in this flat and somehow we manage to accumulate a lot of junk. I'm guilty of the most junk especially with my fabric and sewing supplies. I decided all the cleaning and mopping was my exercise for the day and I shall skip the dreaded jogging.

I completed 2 bags over the weekend. I used my fabric remants as I really dislike having bits and pieces lying around.

This is a bag I've made before. Remember the Crescent Bag? I did not try to make any changes to this bag other than adding a zip pocket in front.

This is the 2nd bag I made. Notice something familiar about this bag?

Maybe putting them side by side will help. Yes, the top half of the 2 bags are exactly the same. You could say, they have the same DNA? For the 2nd bag, I modified the bottom half to create a roomier bag. I straightened the curves a little and added a flat bottom. What do you think?

I think Bear enjoys sitting in it.

What I love is the bottom. I wanted a rectangular shape but with some softness. Bear loves it. Swear.

I really like how you extended the crescent bag with the rectangle. I'd love some hints and tips on designing your own bags and adjusting the bottoms. Or,I'd be happy to buy patterns from you! I really enjoy browsing your blog and seeing all the different bags you've made.

Your bags are awesome!!! These are your bits and pieces? You have such nice fabrics. I have so many little tiny bits of fabrics laying around, I'm going to have to think of something to do with them very soon. None of them seem to match or coordinate and they are very, very little - I just can't seem to get rid of them.

Both bags are lovely. So... did it rain I wonder?

Hi Jane,

what a lovely present (actually plural!) i like the one with the lady stiched on it the most.

i really like the adjusted pattern on the second bag too, cuz i like bags which are standing on their own. I have the feeling things are much more organized in such bags.

These bags are just gorgeous! Love the fabric you've used and the shapes of them
