    "Aunties Two" quilted bags - anyone make one?

    I just watched a you tube video on how to make these beautiful bags.
    Has anyone made one? the ones that use folded strips of fabric. I wondered how hard the strips are to sew together and if you might have any tips before I order some patterns.
    Thanks everyone!

    I have the pattern, but haven't made it yet. I bought the pattern after I saw the small size, but then saw the two different sizes made up. The large bag is very large.

    I made one and didn't think it was difficult.....just time consuming!! I used warm n natural for the batting.

    Oh that looks like it would be so neat!,, I have some strips I got in Paducah that would be perfect. Anyone know where to find the duo fuse? wonder why not just use fuse-able batting.

    It's a pretty bag but no way would I make something like that for sale. Just the cost of an entire jelly roll not to mention the fusible batting used you would never be able to charge enough to just break even.

    But, be a neat way to reduce your stash and make a scrappy bag.

    Because she is selling the duofuse, but a search on computer should bring up sources.

    Saw a different technique, same results at the Paducah Quilt Show. The lady took clothesline and wrapped the 2" strips around it as she did the same sewing - zig-zagging it in the circle or other shape you wanted. It was beautiful and looked really easy. I don't know if there is a tute for that method.

    With the Hobo bag, you don't make the continuous tube, but do each strip separately, then arrange them in the order you want them and sew them together. You end up with a flat piece that you then shape the sides and make a channel for the handles to go through. The pattern instructions are very easy to follow.

    Joysewer - If you used warm and natural, did you use a spray glue to bind the batting to the strip? Or did you just lay it on the strip and fold it in?
    Thanks everyone for your input, I appreciate it!

    The Crafty Gemini, Vanessa, has a tutorial on her youtube channel showing how to make a basket using the cording (like a thick cotton rope) and wrapping strips of fabric around it and stitching together similar to this method. Cutting all those strips of fusible batting would drive me nuts. The one that Vanessa makes uses up scraps as opposed to buying an entire jelly roll to make it. One of these days I'm gonna try it.

    What do you think the difference in weight and softness would be? I.e.: would the rope one be heavier and less soft? That might be a consideration for me if I were to make one.

    I made the large bag, which is very useful. only problem is it is heavy. Before you begin filling. I used scraps of batting. We are visiting the vet. I have 3 dogs they love the bag to sleep on.

    Ive made several bowls etc. using the clothesline method which IMHO is much easier and less steps, too much fussing with the fleece and and am wondering if it ends up too soft.
