Good evening/morning Cuties. I've been making some In the Hoop Zipper purses for the past couple of days.

These are for my annual Christmas ladies luncheon. I'm just making random fabric ones that match any of the zips I've got in my stash. The pattern is from the Missouri Quilt Company and I really love the addition of the little zipper tags on each end of the zip.

Love Chris


P.S. Bathroom and toilet are nearly finished. Can't wait till the end of the week.

1. Three bags lying down, they are boxed out at the base.
2. The three bags viewed from the top.

A good take on these bags Chris. I do my zipper ends like this on my coat hanger safe, as they are only 14 inch zippers, and I need them slightly longer. A girl can never have too many bags just ask my friend Trudy!-lol

I have lots of little zip bags, yet I seem to always need just one more..... Good "swag" for your Christmas luncheon.

Beautiful purses. I love the design. I once watched a u-tube video on one of her bags, but have not gotten up the courage to make one yet.

Going to your ladies' luncheon is like going to the Oscars and getting the celebrity gift basket! These look great.

Thanks Debbie, I hope so. It's just gone 7.30 Wednesday morning and I'm waiting for the shower man to come at 8.30 to install the glass panel. It's looking great, just finalising the cornices, painting, installation of the vanity and bathroom cabinet and then just the fixtures (towel rails etc.), toilet roll holder. It sounds a lot, but once they all get in there it should be finished by the weekend. Love Chris

Love them. They are a wonderful gift and from a great lady. I always enjoy seeing what you make for the grand event of the year and so happy that you share the day with us.
