Bag It Basics

                                 (Click here for the One Monthly Goal September Finish link-up)

Pattern is Open Wide bag byAnnie

Have you been sewing along and sharing your bags?  Well over 40 bags have been shared so far in the link-up and in the Elm Street Quilts Facebook Group.  You can find the link-up here and it will pop-up in a blog post on a regular basis - keep scrolling!

I am really enjoying seeing bags that everyone is making and a few new bag patterns have found their way onto my make list.

Did you catch the tips and tutorials post on Monday?  I think you will find some help and inspiration there!  Next Monday, we'll kick off with a new tutorial as we focus on bags for your sewing studio.

When you are ready to share on Instagram or from your blog, link-up a photo to claim your Bag It Entry
  • Photos linked from Instagram must contain the tag #elmstreetquiltsBagIt
  • Photos linked from a blog post must contain a link back to Elm Street Quilts.
Want to share and enter from Facebook?  Join the Elm Street Quilts Facebook QAL group and then record your entry via the Bag It Facebook Entry Form  
  • (Why the form?  Winners are notified via email and the form collects your email address plus it makes things WAY easier for me to randomly select winners.)
You can share the photo of your bag multiple times but ONLY enter it once either in the link-up OR in the Bag It Facebook Entry Form.   

You will know when your entry is 'official' because I will come visit and leave a comment thanking you for entering.  (I batch up my bag visits so it may be several days until I stop by!)

New to the event and want to join?  Read more here and check out the participant guidelines for everything you need to know!

One more look at my fun new bag which may or may not be a gift but until it is gifted, I can enjoy looking at it, right?

Bag pattern from byAnnie and thread by Aurifil - both are sponsors of Bag It.

Ready to link-up?  And not to worry, the event runs through December 15 so there is plenty of time to make bags!

I'll be linking my finished bag at Freemotion by the River,   WIP Wednesday's,  Let's Bee SocialMidweek Makers.  Needle and Thread Thursdays, Finish it Up Friday and Finished or Not Friday.

Have a wonderful day! Patty
