Secret Santa

I'm having way too much fun sewing these bags!


I added a little brown ball trim around it. This time I did it before I "quilted" it.

And since I have been using fat quarters I have to piece fabrics together for the interior.

I don't know that anyone is remotely interested in making these, but if you saw the other post with the fabric measurements and you'd rather make this one with the blocks across the middle instead of the strips, you only need to do one thing differently. Instead of cutting 16 strips 2 1/2" x 9 1/2", you need to cut 4 blocks 8 1/2" by 9 1/2".

My kids have specific directions not to look at the blog until after Christmas, and since this will be wrapped up for Chatty, I hope she doesn't try sneaking a peek. I had to sew it when she was gone from the house and even had to take the pictures of it hanging on the back of my bathroom door so she wouldn't see it.

If she peeks I'm keeping it for myself!

Kayren love the bags!! They are so nicely done. I have made bags in the past, and know that they can take quite a bit of patience. Yours are lovely and the color selection is great! As always, enjoy your blog :)
