Design by Rhonda W. © 2012. This handy bag uses elements from my "Dahlia Garden" Collection in the surface pattern.
This Handy Bag pattern is one that I have used many times for patchwork and quilting projects. Over the years it has worn many faces and been made up in several different sizes. It was fun to transform it into a useful bag kit, decorated with my own hand drawn fabric designs. Design by Rhonda W. © 2012.

Are you planning to reprise this bag pattern for the Holiday gift bag Contest Rhonda? One aspect that I (still) find appealing when I see it popping up in faves and so on, is that it's a pattern for a ROUND bag... I guess the square and rectangular ones are maybe easier to do, but round is always a more attractive shape I think!

This is such a super idea for a fab bag Rhonda! The coordinating prints are fab and really take the hard work out of planning and making a bag!
Thank you very much, Lana and Carole! I'm so glad that you like my Blooming Handy Bag design! ;-o)

Thank you very much for your kind words, Karen! :-)

A very pretty design, it should look lovely sewn up! Your patchwork bag with plaited handles is very attractive too!
Thank you, Astrid! Reading your nice comment has certainly brightened my day! :-)
The plaited handle detail is really cute! Love the patchwork on the photographed version as well : )
Thank you for the lovely comment, Grace! :-)
Great design, Rhonda! I think your sweet floral patterns work really well w/ the beautifully designed bag.
Thank you so much for your comment, Eloisa! :-)
Rhonda this bag is fabulous! I love the plaited handles as well, easy to carry but fashionable too! :)
Thank you very much, Angela and Michelle! Your lovely comments are much appreciated! Like you, I find this rounded-shape bag is visually pleasing, but I also like that it's carrying capacity is more than it appears. That is good for someone who usually carries a lot of stuff in her handbag! The plaited handles are also a favourite of mine! :-)
Nice shape bag design, I like the plaited straps very effective :)
Nice design! I love the shape of the bag and this print collection has always been a favorite.
Thank very much, Janet, Virginie, Matthew & Matthea, Katarina, Maria and Marca! I really enjoyed reading your positive comments about my design! So glad that you agree with me about having light coloured linings for bags, Marca! It can be so frustrating, trying to find the keys that are lurking in the bottom of a black-lined bag, especially on a dark night in poor light!
Bags with light coloured linings are fabulous - much easier to see the contents and pockets are a must! Well thought out Rhonda and beautifully co-ordinated prints.
you made a great colors and patterns match with that version!
Great design, love it!:)
Love it, Rhonda! This is really beautiful.
Really cute Rhonda !
This is lovely! Fantastic job!
Thank you Carmen, Amy, Victoria and Su! I haven't received this kit yet, but I have made this bag as a patchwork project in the past and have some photographs of that version. I will try to post some pictures of it later today.
It does look very interesting and I too want to see it made up as I'm not sure I am envisaging the base of the bag correctly, but I do like all the different color and pattern combinations in there!
What a cute little bag! I'm looking forward to seeing it as a finished piece.
super cute design! i wonder how it will get along with spring clothes! The colours are so boho and pretty!
Thank you, Emma! These dahlias just wanted to be used on this project! :-)
Great to see your Dahlias in action Rhonda! Good luck with the competition! : )
Thank you very much, Penny, Alex, Isabella, Lucy, Rachel, Elishka and Sannie! Reading your lovely comments has really brightened my day! :-)
So cute Rhonda. Love the collection too.
What a fancy handbag! I love the flower patterns you created for it - fantastic!
super cute! can't wait to see it sewn up!
lovely colors and shape !
I totally agree, with Alex! One of the things I really love about kits is their potential for extremely economical use of fabric. The layout of your shapely bag demonstrates this advantage well. It's cleverly done and absolutely gorgeous!
What good use of space!
What an adorable purse this will make
Thank you Dianne! I am so glad that you like my design! :-)
This is beautiful Rhonda, I love your print and color choices.
Thank you, Helene and Kelly! It was great to read your positive feedback!
Wonderful bag design, can/t wait to see it finished!
Very cute bag Rhonda!!
Than you, Nadja! Your comment has put a big grin on my face! :-)
Thank you for the sweet comment, Christine! I have made many patchwork and quilting variations of this bag over the years, but they have all been given away as gifts or sold at craft shows! Having my own designs decorating this cut and sew kit will make it extra special when I make it up. I will be waiting impatiently for my samples to arrive!
Rhonda this is a wonderful bag cut and sew kit. Very creative and the design is lovely. I would love to see the finished product.
