(Gift) Bags

I've a niece and nephew (twins) set to graduate from high school and move onto college.  I decided to make them each a zip bag - something that they could take to college.  I typically make these in their college school colors (or some facsimile) but I hadn't nothing in my stash that would work so I made these!

My nephew loves the outdoors - fishing, hiking etc.  The fabric looks like tree bark!

My niece loves pastels - pinks especially.  I found this fabric in my stash and spiced it up a bit with a brighter zipper.

Finally, couldn't help myself and made one more - this one for my sister.  They are about to move a long distance and figured she might enjoy a bag for their trip.

I followed my tips for boxy bags.  There is 2 layers of fusible batting so the bags have some structure.

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. Great gifts for the grads and the mom, too! Love that idea of the mother getting something for her travels during their college years.

  2. These are great! A great idea for students heading off to college. I really like the pink print and the top one looks very outdoorsy. I bet they will love them!

  3. What wonderful, useful gifts!


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