Bag It - Coming this September!

I've been busy making a whole new series of bags in support of the Elm Street Quilts Bag It event which starts in about a month!

I'm calling this bag a market basket and think it would be perfect to take with you to go fabric shopping.  (Or really any kind of shopping but fabric shopping is the best kind of shopping!)

What is Elm Street Quilts Bag It?

This blog event will kick off Monday September 12 with a week long introduction to all the fabulous sponsors.

Then, the tutorial begin - weeks and weeks of new tutorials of all different kind of bags.

The best part?

Making a bag during the event - from my tutorial, your own tutorial or from a pattern - earns you participant entries towards the giveaways.

If you needed incentive to get some handmade holiday gifts made, this is it!

You can read more about the overall event on the information page.

I'd love your help in building a listing of great bag tutorials.

Link up your bag tutorial from your blog - doesn't matter when the blog post went live as long as it contains a link to this tutorial page so people can find other bag tutorials.

New tutorials shared in a blog post September 1 through November 15 which contain a reference to Elm Street Quilts Bag It linky party, will earn you an entry into the overall entry bucket.

And I'll be searching for featured bloggers during Bag It from all those who enter a tutorial into the linky.

I love my new bag and can't wait to share the tutorial for this bag and a whole bunch more!!

I'll be linking up with Finish it Up FridaySew Cute Tuesdays, , Freemotion by the River,   WIP Wednesday's,  Let's Bee Social,  and Midweek Makers.
