Christmas Bag with Fabric Editions

Christmas Project Bag-11Well hello there!  Thanks for dropping by!  I have been having so much fun creating these drawstring bags.  I literally stalked my Walmart to find these $0.97 fat quarters by Fabric Editions.  Last week, I hit the jackpot!

I immediately knew what I wanted to make, but I also wanted to display the fat quarter rolls for the holidays, so this project turned out to be a two for one!

You can open the drawstring and fold it down and voila… it’s an instant “work from me” bag.  When you’re all finished, simply cinch it up and everthing is nice a secure on the inside.

I’ll be adding some of these to my Etsy Shop.  I have created a Design Space pattern for this and hope to share that as soon as I can find the time to record a video tutorial.

Check . your local Walmart for these fantastic finds!  What I don’t use this year, I will simply cinch up in this fun little holiday bag for next year!

 

Placemat Pouch #6 – The Project Bag

The Placemat Projects have sort of “been my thing”.  It’s funny, really, I never intended to create a whole series of pouches based off of these Pioneer Woman Placemats from Walmart.

I made another bag (not a placemat bag and someone asked me if it was made from a placemat.  I immediately knew that I could make something similar from a placemat, so I did.

Enter, the Project Bag.  This is so easy to make and it’s absolutely the perfect size to carry your knitting, cross stitch, etc..  It has a wide open mouth to it that stays open, so you can work right out of the bag.  When you’re all finished, cinch it up and you’re project is safe and sound until the next time you’re ready to work.

The six large outside pockets are the perfect place for keys, wallet, phone, etc.
