What-not bags

In my never-ending quest to reduce the junk, I mean stuff in my house, I decided (at the last minute) to make 25-30 small bags to donate to my church for an upcoming fundraising tea and luncheon. These bags can be used for craft projects, cosmetics, pens, pencils, crayons, baby supplies, gift bags….

Box bags are too time-consuming so I’m sewing another bag similar to the ones shown at the bottom of this post.

Using some new as well as vintage fabrics from iPad aunt’s and my M-I-L’s fabric stash along with zippers from my stash, I hope to be finished with this project by the end of the week.

Cutting the outer fabric, lining fabric and fleece interfacing takes a lot longer than one might expect.

I also have the bags broken down by thread color so I can set up an assembly line and whip through them quicker.

So that’s what I’ve been doing lately.  Any last-minute projects taking up your time?

  1. I received a request for some burp cloths…..due in a few days….also picked up 2 children from the wishing tree. Most of their gifts are purchased but I need to get some boxes and a large tote to put the wrapped gifts in for delivery. Those are due Friday. Grocery shopping and house cleaning and work…busy week!
