CQIバッグコンテスト2008 CQI Purse Contest 2008/ Ati's Baggie

CQIの2008年バッグコンテストが昨日終了しました。このコンテストは作品の写真の人気投票で結果が出ますので、終わるまで一切公開できないのです。これでやっと私が先月作ったものをお見せできることになりました。
Now I show you what I worked last month, as the CQI Purse Contest 2008 finished yesterday. We had to keep our works in secret until then.

さて今年はどう作ろうと考えたとき、私はノルウェーのアティのバギーをそのまま使うことにしました。彼女は別のグループで今年一年間、私とはスワップシスターの間柄です。今年1月に届いたのがこれです。
I used a baggie from Ati, Norway I received in January. She is my swap sister from another group in this year.
Here's her whole baggie. I loved her choice so much, I decided to use all stuffs there and added the least of mine.



ブロックを2枚、作りました。
I made two blocks; pieced fabrics, embellished motifs and trims, used yarns, and stitched seams with threads, from her baggie.






どこにどの材料をどう使ったかがおわかりいただけると思います。
You can see what, where, how I used them here.







バッグはごく普通のトートバッグに仕立てました。
I finished into a practical tote bag.





残念なことにコンテストでの入賞はできませんでしたが、アティからのバギーが一つの形になったのが私には一番うれしいことです。アティが気に入ってくれますように。
I missed the prize but isn't it the happiest thing I've completed a work of the whole baggie from my oversea sister? Ati, I hope you like my purse.

Hi Hideko, As I said on the flickr page: you have made a beautiful bag from the first baggie!
So useful, you will get a lot of comments when you are shopping with it , I guess. I noticed the materials on the purse contest, I voted for the bag, but it didn't help much ;)

You made a wonderful bag and that is with the content of only Ati's baggie. That's great.

Thank you very much for your kind words, Ati and Anne. I think this bag is not bad. I love it. I am very glad both of you do so, too.

Hideko the bag is so pretty and I can't believe it is made from 1 baggie. well I do believe it but that is awesome...congratulations. I think it would be a wonderful idea for a swap of some kind...

It is a beautiful bag Hideko and a prize in itself.

Well done using the birthday baggie alone.
