It's A Snap Hag...I Mean Bag

Yesterday was my quilt group day and Barbara had us making snap hags...I mean bags.


Hags, bags...whatever!

I spent a few minutes of my time with this model and she was quite the diva.


I heard her cackle this after the photo shoot...


That Comanche Lady, Vampira Vickie, sent me some Day of the Dead fabric a while ago.
It made the cutest snap bag! The fabric was purple...what's not to love about it!

The witch found it a bit distasteful and almost refused to be photographed with it.
She was mumbling something about skulls only being good for potions and spells.



It was a fun time with the ladies and snap bags!
I think I need to make more...yep, I'm sure I do!

You crack me up. Reading your humorous blog makes my day. What do you do with a snap bag?

Missed the last couple of "creepy" posts. Had a good chuckle catching up. Love Miss Witch. She is so full of personality. So is Mr. Skeleton. Love all the bags, the round ones and the snap ones. I love making snap bags. May have to give your round one a try. Really looks handy with the pockets.

BTW, zoom lenses were invented to avoid getting up close and personal with spiders. (shiver) Just saying.. (shiver)

That witch is terrific fun. But I love the snap bags. A friend made a small one for me and I love it. I just might gotta make some of them myself too.

Your snap bags are beautiful. I tried to make some but didn't care for how they turned out. Being part of a fun group would really help the Creative Bliss...

Those bags are great aren't they? I've made a few in the past and seeing yours, now I feel I need to make a few more.
