Zipper Bags are done!

I managed to finish the zipper bags … just in time as I was busy today helping a friend set up a booth for a show.  Check out The Steam Trunk Craftworks to see what I played with!  She does mail order as well as several shows.  I absolutely LOVE the hand painted buttons!

Here are my zipper bags and they are already wrapped and ready to head over to Victoria. They finished up at about 9″x 8″.    It was a lot of fun to quilt organic straight lines on the fabric.  I love doing “organic” … it doesn’t always need to be perfectly straight!  Just my style!

They were a lot of fun … no pattern … would you like to do a sew-along to make these sweet bags?  If so, leave me a comment.

Happy Quilting!

Nursing Reunion and zipper bags

This weekend, I’m going to a nursing reunion!  Hard to believe that it’s been 40 years since we graduated from St. Joes!  It will be fantastic to see everyone that attends!

The gal organizing the reunion contacted me and asked if I had anything small in my quilty box to use as prizes for a game.  I replied, “sure, I have some zipper bags.”  Well, I went to my quilty box, which did not have any zipper bags in it.  So, that means that I need to make some.  They don’t take long and are fun to make.

I pulled out my small tote of fat quarters and chose a couple of prints … I’ll make the one on the right first.
