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.
