Patchwork= crazy. I have never been able to cut a straight line when it come to material so I have never made a real patchwork quilt, you know the ones with all the perfect lines and shapes that go together.So I do crazy patchwork and I have been making some new things and I would like to show you my new and my old. These old jeans I haven't been able to fit into them for quiet awhile so when I tried them on and they fitted I decided to give them an update.I decided to do some crazy patchwork on them by adding different pieces of material to them. wow I was so happy with the way they look and even better how good my bum looked in them now that my bum has been found.



This is a little bag I made for my Etsy. Its big enough to hold keys, purse, phone.It has a crazy patchwork design on it and I have added other bits to make it look pretty. Its selling for $8.00.
This one has more colours on it with different coloured laces and lots of pretty bits and bobs on it too. Its small enough to be dainty and big enough to hold your keys, phone and money and comes with a long handle.

This one is quiet large.I made it to carry lots of stuff and it is made with patches of my prettiest material and I added bits and bobs all over it.I use it all the time.


This one was an old business bag that was thrown away, I loved the sharp of it and it stands up on its own.I took it home and covered it with material and buttons, etc. I use this bag alot and it holds heaps of stuff.

Hope one day I get to make a quilt using squares and triangles like other ladies do but for now I will keep making my crazy patchwork.. I have a few things on to go, I am making a queen size quilt cover out of pillow slips which I have been collecting for years so when it is finished I will show you.But for now I hope you enjoy looking at my patchwork.....
goodnight love ya Glenda xoxoxoxoxox
