Susan Congdon, “The Bag Lady”


       For April’s program Aiken Quilt Shop’s own Susan Congdon, “The Bag Lady”, presented a large selection of bags in varying sizes and types including purses, totes, handbags and a kid’s purse.  She talked about designers, patterns, construction options and materials and passed around her examples ( with pattern identified)  so everyone got a close look.
 
This little purse had changeable flaps and one for each season. 


She provided directions for a simple drawstring bag made from a fat quarter and a list of websites that include bags you could make for reuseable grocery totes.  Here is the list:






I feel sure many of our members will be busy sewing on a new bag soon.
