Boxy Bags and Zip Pouches

I am continuing to use up the scraps of hand-dyed fabric by making boxy bags.

You can find the tutorial for the boxy bags in my previous post.

I have made a couple more bags that are not pictured here.

I have also made zip pouches, one for each bag.  I found a basic tutorial over at Elm Street Quilts.

I plan on keeping a couple of bags for personal use (I’ve got a trip to Hawaii coming soon!).

The rest of the bags will be Christmas gifts.

I am going to fill them with goodies for the grandkids…the bags are the Christmas wrap!  It is going to be fun finding items to fill the bags!

I still have a lot of squares left.  I have thought to make pot holders (I do need some), pincushions, and other small items.

Frankly, I’m tired of these squares!  Ha, ha!  So I am giving them to some creative young ladies.

And I feel great…I am actually thinking ahead for Christmas!  No stress!
