Bag Making Inspiration

Elm Street Quilts Drawstring Backpack

Two weeks into the Bag It event and I'm having a great time.  I hope you are too!

Just finished up another Drawstring Backpack using some yummy Island Batiks!  It was fun to choose contrasting fabric for the lining and the hidden zip pocket.

I love tutorials - to read them and to write them.  But sometimes I want to download instructions that I can print and / or save for easy access on my ipad or computer.  I'm pleased to announced that two of the Elm Street Quilts Bags - The Purse Pack and the Drawstring Backpack - are also available from my Craftsy store for a small fee.

The tutorial for the Drawstring Backpack with a twist will be available mid-November.  But you can get started now with the pattern.  The twist is the hidden zip pocket tucked into the side seam.  So handy!

The Purse Pack tutorial published earlier this month and is also available as a pattern.  These go together quickly and make great gifts - it may just be a pattern you want to refer back to again and again!

Get your copy from my Craftsy store!   More will be released soon!

The Bag It event runs through mid-December but make sure you share bags now as you make them and earn entries.  There is a permanent linky party here plus the same linky will show up in blog posts to remind you.  Look at some of the great bags that have been linked up so far!

When you think up, you'll be asked to say how many bags are in the photo.  No need to take a photo of each bag individually.   Check it out and enter your bag!

What's up next week in the Elm Street Quilts Bag It event?

On Monday, the tutorial for the Sew Travel bag will be available and on Friday we'll focus on tutorials that other people have shared.  Have a bag tutorial?  Link it up here and earn extra entries! 


Have a wonderful day! Patty

  1. You've been a busy girl! I started making the Sew Together Bag, but am on hold until my travels on Wednesday find me in the vicinity of a fabric store for zippers. No shopping experiences nearby, I'm afraid! Enjoy a pieceful day! XO


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