More Bags



It is no secret that I enjoy making bags.  Recently I took my mom's projects from our Handi Quilter University and made her a bag.  She didn't get as much quilting done as me, so her bag is a little bit smaller, and the sampler quilt made its way into the pocket and lining of her bag.


She really loves her new bag.  (I just have to make sure my boys don't put my stuff in there by mistake when we visit grandma.)

I have also finished some more drawstring bags to give as gifts.  The large one was for Panda's soccer coach, and the little ones are for friends.


They all have a fun black and white checkerboard lining.


I love having some of these on hand for my boys to take to parties.  Besides, quick finishes are so much fun!

XX,

  1. Quick finishes are super satisfying! And I can totally picture your boys putting something in a similar looking bag; good think you are thinking about that already.

  7. What a lovely use of your mom's practice pieces. I'm sure she loves her bag. I'm also sure she won't mind the extra visit when you have to go return anything that makes it into the wrong bag!

  8. I am with you on the bag love! I may have to play some more with my embroidery unit and make a few more bags. Yours are great.
