Love this fabric. What a cute bag
This is great, True! I bought this pattern too, but I have yet to get my act together and stitch up a bag LOL!
I love your bag! The fabric is darling. I want to try making one, and very excited to check out Jenib320's pattern.
I think it's so cute - I hope they get used in the basket!
Love the fabric you've chosen! I have this same pattern but like Caribousmom I have yet to make one. Everytime I see it made up I want ot kick myself for being such a slacker. These bags are going to be the highlight of the basket!
These bags were the hit of the day at work...everyone loves them! So looks like 10 more are in my future...just ordered more fabric so will have enough in this line but also for two totally different auction needs:-)
I love this pattern! I'm going to try to use the tutorial for adding pockets next. Yours looks great, and yay for getting to make more!
That's awesome True! Glad they went over so well.
True it's a free tutorial that goes along with the pattern that you have! Here you go: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1X-liXCX7pB7vY1FYyYrR84kYkFaELH2bRIr7KjRvyUI/edit?pli=1
True, that's great! I'm so glad they liked them (though, of course they did!)
Kristananne - I've seen that tutorial too. I've been wanting to try adding the pockets.
You're welcome! Let me know if you do it, I'd love to get a review on how easy/hard it is.
These are SPECTACULAR, Mary!!!
Caribousmom Thanks Wendy...wish you lived closer I would have you over for dinner and we could whip up the rest;-)!!! I really think this pattern is just so cute:-)
Oh, man I wish we lived closer too - I'd race right over there! One of these days, we'll meet in person (I have a feeling!!)
These are great bags! I've made several different sizes, and have really enjoyed them!
Aquilterstable Thank you...have you made the laundry bag size...the largest one she shows? If you have I know it says it would fit a quilt but would a lap size (61 x 61) go in it? I am trying to decide if it would work to go with one of my quilts that it so be auctioned off as a storage bag?
True, those bags are absolutely gorgeous! What a fabulous way to use them, too.
Want !!!! I love them!!
True , question for you. I haven't seen this pattern. Could you tell me what sizes are available to be made? They are darling and useful for so many purposes. I'm thinking rather than wrapping paper (which just gets thrown out), why not put gifts in these darling bags? Thanks for the idea.
Quilterinmotion if you click on blue tutorial button it will take you to the pattern and she shows them and also describes what might fit in each size. She gives you measurements for everything from 4.5 x 5 to 26 x 17 BUT the best part is she also gives you instruction for figuring out how to make a custom bag of any size you want! I think they are a great idea for gifts instead of wrapping paper. I also have another fabric bag pattern that I use for that purpose that looks more like a traditional paper gift bag and uses interfacing which I also love and my mom has been using hers for years now (she and her friends pass them back and forth:-) Also I have made sets of like 5 and given them as a gift!
True , thanks so much. I went over after I left that message and checked it out. How about a pic of the "traditional gift bag"?
Quilterinmotion I do not have any pictures of the bag I have made but here is the link. In case it gets cut off google allpeoplequilt.com and search for fabric gift bag and it will come up for you.
True , thanks. I'll go look at it but I think I love your drawstrings and they are SO useful for anything from toys to make-up to knitting to........
Quilterinmotion Once I made a few in the size they give you I figured out how to make them in all kinds of sizes to meet my needs...people just love both these bag patterns you should see the reaction when you give them! And because you can use all kinds of different fabrics or make stripes or whatever you really can personalize them as well as make for all occassions
Quilterinmotion On Jenib320 's blog I think she recently showed how to make the bags with stripes, etc. really cute. I also made a bag to go with the Rays of Hope quilt for the auction...it is posted under that quilt project. I think the next time I make a baby quilt I will make a matching bag and give it to the new mom in the bag which she can then use however she wants!
True Yes, I HAVE made the laundry size. I do think it would fit a lap quilt folded up. (Gave it to my mom so I can't check.) There is a pic in this post of it 'standing' in a chair - it's pretty good size. http://aquilterstable.blogspot.com/2012/01/monday-finishes.html
Aquilterstable Thanks I ended up making the laundry size for a quilt that was @64x64 and there was more than enough room for an even
larger quilt to fit in it.
oh great - glad to know that works. It's a good idea!
I love these! I need to make some. Seriously. I never have enough pretty bags for my knitting projects.
Bentneedle thank you it is a great pattern and I am serious everyone who has seen them has gone nuts for them...it is almost comical the reaction they bring out!
just love these. Thanks of sharing you pattern
Congratulations on a successful auction!!
