Week 5 - Elm Street Quilts Bag It!!

Do you know what you can make with one mini charm pack?

Three bags!!   I made two triangle and one basic zip pouch from one mini charm pack of the a Kate Spain line.  I just love each and everyone.  (Shhh, hope my sisters will too!)

There have been a dozen days of Elm Street Quilts Bag It series, filled with tutorials and tips for making all kids of bags, most but not all with zips.

Miss a day?  Here is the full list of blog posts:

I'm about done with my holiday bag gift creating except for a few more headphone pouches on the cutting table.   Want a supply kit to make two of these?  You get two pieces of vinyl, two zippers and the fusible fleece you will need.  Just add fabric!  Check out my Etsy store where I've a limited set of supply kits available. 

And I'm running a bit of a special in the Etsy store - buy two kits and I'll throw in a third kit for free!  (No coupon code required - ends Dec 15th.)   This means you'll get the supplies you need to make 6 headphone pouches for the price of 4.

  1. This has been such a fun event. Thank you for hosting it. Total #CreativeGoodness.

    You refer to your ETSY store, but I'm not finding a link. I am probably overlooking the obvious. Maybe you should know I was truly dropped on my head as a small baby.


  2. I'm still sewing bags as gifts - I have ... 3 more planned for this weekend, then ... then I have to check my To Do list to see if I have more to do, lol :D


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
