Texture Magic Tuesday/ Bungalow Bag

Amy Eileen Koester belongs to a Bag of The Month club at her local quilt store. Recently she adapted Bungalow Bag by Abby Lanes to use Texture Magic.

"The pattern suggested piecing 12" strips to make the upper band for the bag. Using the Texture Magic™ Conversion chart I cut a piece of fabric and TM each 11" by 44"." Amy said.

The handles on the bag looked almost like they have been textured, but that is just fabric slipped over the handles constructed for the bag.
"The fabric is gathered because it was cut twice as long as the handles. The handles are made of copper wire and plastic tubing from Home Depot, I cut the plastic tubing to handle length and ran the copper wire through the tubing. The wire allows the tubing to hold it's shape and also creates a loop to attach the handle to the bag. The handles cost under $1.00 to make, and I love the look of copper." Amy continued.
Amy used Rainbows #805 to texturize the top of the bag because she felt the colors matched well with the flowers on the main section of the bag.
Amy is a Texture Magic Rep working in the Florida area.
