Boxy Bags

I was blessed with a glorious three days off!  What to do, what to do?  It isn’t that I don’t have anything to do, it is that I am behind on anything and everything.  Three days is precious…I don’t want to waste it.

So I began cleaning/reorganizing my sewing studio.  I say began, because…well…it quickly became overwhelming.  So instead, I cleaned just enough to work on a project.  Ha, ha!

I found a small tote full of 6″ squares of hand dyed fabric.  This stuff is old and I want to use it up and empty the tote!  Therefore, I cut the 6″ squares into 3″ squares and really filled up that tote.  Sheesh!

Hand Dyed Scraps

I’ve been wanting to make boxy bags for quite a while.  An upcoming trip to Hawaii (2 more months and I’m there!) is just the push that I needed.

Pink Stitches has a great tutorial for these boxy pouch bags and it is easy to change the size if one wants to (which I did).

I’ll be making more of these.  They will make nice gifts.

And I’ve barely made a dent in that tote of hand dyed squares!
