got scraps?


I was looking for a cute bag pattern
 and online found this one

it is called Clermont Farms quilted bag
and was found on Moda

it uses 1 yard of a lining
1 yd batting
and 1 jelly roll  
(or scraps that we all have)

I love the scrappy look and I may need to make one
just sayin.........

it looks simple enough once you get the parts done
it is basically sewing together 2 1/2 strips
leave some in strips
and make the others into checkerboard
if you are doing scrappy you just need 18  
four patches   to make the checks front and back
and the sides are strips
the inside and straps are of yardage

they pieced the parts
quilted them
trimmed them
and then sewed into a bag

hmmmmmmmm
maybe we should make some bags together!
finished bag is 13cx13x7 deep
nice for traveling to the grocery store with
or carrying some projects in to soccer games
or packing for a grandchild for an overnight bag

many possibilities and you can make different sizes by adding
or subtracting
a very useful way to use some "too pretty to throw away"
scraps
heck you can even piece the inside batting if you want
I do it all the time for projects like this........
