Friday Night Sew-in: Laundry Bag


So, I decided to use some of the fats in my stash to make a laundry bag using a pattern by Fig Tree Quilts.  It is a super easy pattern.  I love it.  I do wish my finished bag was a bit bigger though.  It is going to be a gift for a HS graduate this spring.  I hope to embroider some complimenting towels as well.

Did you work on anything last night?

Great gift Kris! I work on Mon Ami but didn't join the sew-in this time.

Oh, how cool is that? I'm sure it will be appreciated!

I worked on the blocks for a quilt for the guest room last night.

I love giving laundry bags as gifts when people go to uni, nowhere near as nice as yours though!

Me again :) - do you remember how big this bag came out? I have to make a sack for that Santa Sack Swap I joined and this one may be a good size for it. Let me know. :)
