I came across this pattern on the Internet and thought it would be fun to teach the girls that I am over in the youth group at church. A few months ago I taught them how to make pajama pants. It was a complete fly by the seat of my pants adventure. I didn't make a pair before hand so we all learned as we went.
This time around I thought I would try to make a bag before I taught the girls and hopefully things would go smoother. One bag turned into another.... and another.... and another. I present to you, all of the contestants in the bag lady pageantry!
Here we have Miss New Jersey with her hands on her hips. Her gown is made from a very modern splashy springy fabric sporting stripes and paisley.
Next we have Miss Montana. For her talent she is performing the hula. Remember, the dance is all about the hands telling a story, not the hips...... Miss Montana learned how to hula on YouTube.
Miss Montana would like to draw attention to the inside of her lined gown. She and Holly Hobby picked out fabric for their dresses together.
Next up we have miss Hawaii. Don't be fooled by her cute petite size. She's quite ticked at Miss Montana for taking all of her thunder by doing the Hula for her talent but you would never know by her yellow sunny disposition peeking through the top of her gown.
Last up we have Miss Texas. Everything really is bigger in Texas if one goes by the amount of yardage used in Miss Texas's gown. As she sits her all serene with arms folded she demurely leans into the microphone and tells us all that she really does just want world peace. That's all she wants y'all. World peace!
