    I recently replaced all my bed linens and instead of the plastic zipper packages that are so useful for the quilt room, the sets came in cloth bags. They are fitted bags and no way a human can get the sheet set back in them! :lol: They are nice but I don't know of a use for them. Any one find a good thing to use them for?

    I noticed that too! I though they might be nice with a handle added for a camera and pocket book or for kids travel toys. Cute bags too~~

    why not use them in the quilting room - put selected fabrics together or a WIP?

    Exactly what I was thinking!
    Or to stash your own precuts.

    They aren't see thru so knowing me I'd forget what was in them. If they aren't any use to me as a bag I'll just cut them up, add some matching fabric and sew pillows for the beds. At least they will match!

    I use them when I travel to pack my shoes in. Keeps the rest of the clothes in my suitcase clean.

    I loved the plastic packaging sheets and curtains used to come in--so many uses. The cloth ones--?? Maybe in 100 yrs quilters will be collecting them like we do flour sacks!
