Project bags

 Hi My Quilty Friends. A little something different  for you today. I have been trying different patterns to make project bags  for my cross stitch. I found this tutorial in YouTube here.  It is a fast and easy project. I am pretty happy  with how they turned out. The above is such fun fabric for summer and my strawberry stitching. I have been playing around with a few different patterns and not happy with them. I have about 3 bags in my sewing room that have not turned out, or that are in a time out because they were not working. So to get 4 of these done in about half a day I was super happy.

Here is one that is red white and blue for my Patriotic stitching. All bags measure 11" X 8".

I made two of these bags above, one will go to a friends. 

and I made this one with some left over fabric from my stash. 

 I made 4 bags in about 2.5 hours it took me about 1/2 an hour to get the charms on each of the zippers pulls.

Thought I would pop in and show you what I am up too. 

Until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide


  1. These are super cute! It's great to know that this is a particularly good tutorial. I struggle with zippers and bags :)
