Baggy Bottoms

One of our favorite quilt-related projects is putting together all kinds of bags. These are some that we made last week on our winter wonderland getaway. Nancy made these 2 Sock Sacks from directions here by Terry Atkinson. Perfect for sock knitters or anyone else who needs a convenient little carry bag. A pocket with easy-to-insert zipper instructions and drawstring top.
A modified Snap Happy bag, pattern by Stitchin' Sisters, available at Bear Patch Quilting Co. Pattern includes 3 sizes, or you can custom design your own like Leisl did for these bags. The closure is the coolest ever use of a metal measuring tape.
Using up little squares and scraps plus one zipper creates a handy dandy Accessory Case from Indygo Junction.
And last, but not least, is my own Going Sewing bag made of the selvedge edges of fabrics I have used. Fun to put together, it's kind of like making my own fabric. Pattern for this and the coordinating needlecase, scissor holder and pincushion are available at Bear Patch.
And that's the bottom of the bag!

The little selvage bag is SO cute! It was fun to watch the video that you took while away on your girls retreat!
