Bag It - Go Team!

The holiday gift giving season is fast approaching.  Got a college student on your list?  Make them a bag in fabric themed for their school or in their school colors.

I just finished up this zip pouch (tutorial) yesterday.   It goes well with the Purse Pack I made earlier this year.

Go Tar Heels!

Have you been making bags?  Over 80 bags  have been shared so far in the link-up (below) or on the Elm Street Quilts Group Facebook page.

Next new Bag It tutorial will be available on Monday - Dress up your sewing space with a FQ Basket.

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!

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

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. Oh I love the collegiate bags. Thinking of making one for myself, as I have only scraps of my alma mater collegiate fabric (after making my quilt). Working on another larger bag as well :)


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