Triangle Bags and a link up


These triangle bags are only slightly more complicated that a regular zip bag.  It feels like magic when they come together.

Make one for a friend with my Triangle Bag Tutorial.

There is just one week left to add your bags to the linkup for chances to win the absolutely fabulous prizes from our awesome sponsors.

What bags are you making?

Another day, another bag!

Click here to go to the One Monthly Goal December Link Up Party

(I really don't make a bag a day but couldn't think of a better blog post title.)

I made myself a Sew Together Bag using Sweetwater quilt text fabric I had hanging around my sewing room.


I spread assembly over several days.  This tutorial was invaluable for putting this bag together.


This bag is for me - selfishly not a gift.  The rest of my sewing is all gifts, honest!

I hope you are sewing along with the Bag It event.  Link up will close on December 16th so there is still time to enter.  Read more about the event here.

But if you've no time to make any more bags, please do make sure you've earned some entries into the overall giveaway just just by sharing some sponsor love.

There are five blog posts and a rafflecopter form on each one.  Find a few minutes and visit them all to make sure you've entered!
