Kemshall's are at it again and of course I just had to try making Laura's latest idea! Hanging bags! As Laura stated, we all have those those left over pieces of a quilt, class project or just a practice quilt piece laying around! So why not do something with them!
OK with me! I love an excuse to play in my sewing room! I know...like I need an excuse! So I made two bags yesterday.
OK with me!! So I played and this is a bag I made! I'm going to give this one to my daughter since it's an excess piece of fabric she had quilted to use in a project.
The colors show up lots better in this picture and the one of the square piece...which is 12" square.
I used some cording I had for the edging and the loop. Instead of using thread to close part of the top and bottom edges (keeps the open area closed...hmmmm is that redundant!) I placed Velcro inside. That works quite well!

I am off to finish up another practice quilted piece I have and make another bag! what fun!! Thanks again Laura!!
