Zippy Bags!

I went a bit crazy and spent a frenzied week in May making five zippy bags for some awesome young women I work with - our school's dorm counselors.

Zippy Bag #1, for an articulate woman who loves books, and has a warm personality...

Zippy Bag #2, for an artist who's a little bit zany on the inside - and now has a bag to match...

Zippy Bag #3, for a future educator who will surely bring light into the world through her teaching... (and check out the 1 1/8th inch half-square triangles!) 

Zippy Bag #4, for a woman who is making her dream to live in the desert come true - here's a portrait of her future home... rosemary bushes included... (loving the french knots!)

Zippy Bag #5, some improv piecing for an artist friend...

It was great fun to make them - a little insane on the work bench, just piles of fabric everywhere, all at once! Glad to wrap them up and give them to the giftees; they worked hard this year, and deserve a little thank you.
