November "Make a Bag" Challenge

The November challenge for the month was to make a bag. There were 12 entries on the night, all showing a variety of styles and colours. Fran O'Donoghue had 2 entries on the night which are shown below! Fran was frantically trying to get the white bag finished at the start of the meeting, and her efforts paid off - the bag was voted the winner!

Tracey Watson also had 2 entries, one of which was a beautiful hand-dyed velvet evening bag with appliqued leaves.
Her second bag was a lovely Halloween trick-or-treating bag.

Gillian Sheehan made a appliqued draw-string bag using a tea-towel as the base fabric.
Kate O'Donoghue's entry was a very vibrant green bag made using Japanese folded patchwork squares.
Claire Lynch also had 2 entries - the one seen below was made from a brown paper bag.

Gwen Cottiss entered a black bag that she made for her daughter.

Maeve Meany came second with her Japanese lady quilted bag.
Valerie Shortt's mother entered this bag with incorporated the clever use of a "cheater panel".
