Fat Quarter Bags

I'm on a mission. I want to make some bags from 1-2 Fat Quarters. I've been drawing patterns and cutting out fabric.

The blue floral fabric is hopefully going to be one of the Japanese Knot Bags. I don't have a pattern except the sketch I did while in Japan. The exact measurements are going to be a bit of a guess.
The blue hand dyed fabric is going to be a small pouch bag. A little while a go I tried to make one similar to sweet bag from Stitches mag. I used some left over sampler fabric. I could never get the drawstring to work. The bag has been pinned to my cork board ever since.

I really like the shape so I've drafted off a pattern from the bag and I'm going to have another go. This one will have handles.

The pink/brown hand dyed fabric is to be a small shoulderbag, I'm going to some embellishing before stitching together.

And lastly I'm going to attempt to make a bag for my camera. I got the instructions from Sew-Mad I'll also be embellishing this before assembling.

Should be enough to keep me busy for a while.

I admire you're determination. When I have a failure I throw it in a draw and move onto the next thing. I'm sure the bag will look stunning
