DCMQG Bag Linky Party!

At our sew-in day on the 21st, DCMQG focused on bag making. You can read more about the idea behind this here and here. Our members were working on all kinds of different bags from totes, to project bags, to baskets, and among the members in the group there was a wealth of knowledge about interfacing, zippers, pattern companies and more!

How can you NOT adore this picture of Phylis from our bag sewing meeting? Bag making linky party up on the blog today. Deadline is April 12th and there is a prize!

I'm not certain whether anyone finished a bag at the meeting, and of course many of our wonderful members weren't able to make it, so we wanted to do a virtual show and tell of the bags here on the blog. Added bonus - one DCMQG member who links up will be randomly chosen for a prize!

Here are the guidelines for the link-up:

1. The link up is open for two weeks, until April 12th, at which point it will close, but all the wonderful pictures will still be up for you to come back and drool over.

2. You don't need to have worked on/finished the bag at the March meeting, but in general it should be a bag you recently finished (March 14-April 12).

3. You can use the linky tool to post a picture from your blog, Flickr, Facebook, or Threadbias account by using the URL of the page or photo. There is an option to enter your Instagram account and select a photo that way as well (look for the tab with the Instagram icon). You can also just upload a photo from your computer if you aren't connected with other social media outlets (see the "Upload" tab).

4. Either in the "Link Title" on the linky tool or in the original blog/Instagram photo/etc. that you are linking from, please note the pattern name and designer of the bag you made (especially if it's an original design!). I know many of us were interested to find new sources for patterns and this will be a great resource.

I'm so looking forward to seeing everyone's wonderful creations!
