Coming up roses

It is that time of year again. The end of school is soon and I need teacher gifts. So in between all the non-quilting things I have had to do this week, I started putting together bags (with one for myself.) These are just body of the purses but I wanted show how cute these flowers were. I gotta tell ya, they are so stinkin' cute, they are off the cuteness chart!! These flowers are made from old t-shirts and I just cut up old blue jeans for the denium. (I don't want to tell how long I have been holding on to the jeans I cut up.) I'm going to line them with leftover fabric. So when I'm done, I'll have super cute purses made out of just "stuff" I had. Doesn't make me feel quite as bad that I haven't cleaned out my closet for a while.
I do want to add that I got the idea for these cute little flowers from Penny @ Sewtakeahike. She had a tutorial a little while ago. And after seeing it, I thought these flowers would be cute on a bag. And they are!! And alot of fun to make! Happy Sewing!
