Finished Project Bags

Last week I did a little sewing and finished up some project bags that will be mailed this week as gifts, if the weather cooperates - I can't take the toddler out if it's too cold. I used a tutorial by the Purl Bee that can be found here. All the project bags I made are on the small side but I'd like to try a bigger one that could hold a sweater or the beginning of a blanket. I'm going to use an extra pillowcase and try to make a big one this week.

The first bag I made is for me. I've started to get into the practice of doing a demo first, and if it turns out, I get to keep it. My ribbon supply is low so I used a purple and a black ribbon.

This one is a gift. I had just enough white ribbon to do the handles.

Perfect for a skein of yarn or a small project.

These two are for a special someone who celebrates her birthday today. Happy Birthday Sarah. She does more hand quilting/applique than I do and I thought she would like the ruler fabric to carry thread/ needles in.  The green bag holds her birthday socks and some more goodies. They should be headed north by the end of the week.


  1. What lovely project bags. The two for Sarah are gorgeous! I'm in need of a few, so I will be checking out the tutorial. Thank you for sharing it.

  2. OOOOhhh! I LOVE the bags sis! Can't wait to use them. I sent belated birthday gift your way yesterday ;)
