Front of the Maggie bag
Of the two Maxi-sized ‘Maggie’ bags, I am not sure which one I prefer. Having made this second bag using fabrics bought at New Threads Quilt Shop, Weyhill, I can foresee that this will be very useful throughout the Spring and coming Summer months. Florals are definitely my thing! I will reserve the ‘Hares’ printed bag for use in the Autumn.
I wrote quite extensively about this bag when I first made it in the ‘Hares’ fabric so will not repeat myself. Suffice to say that having previously written up all the instructions complete with cutting plan, this bag went together very much more quickly than before. I am particularly pleased with the contrast Pink top stitching. For that I used the triple stitch feature on my machine and made the stitch length 4.5.
I have already drafted and made up the ‘medium’-sized Maggie bag which appeared on the blog sometime ago. All that now remains is to calculate and make up this style of bag in the smallest size. I still have remnants of the Blue & Beige floral linen-look fabrics so hope to be able to use them for the final project.
