    Found these directions online and made one bag. Hmmm, then my brain kicked into gear. I put "chain piecing" to work, and boom, boom, boom... the sewing machine is just spewing them out. (I average 4 little bags an hour.) 2 Fat quarters make 4 bags. I'm finding it hard, though, to not eat the candy I put in them. Great little gifties for the piano teacher, neighbors, friends. At this rate, I might just start handing them out at the corner and wish everyone a Merry Christmas. :)

    Oh Kasmitty1, they are so cute!!! I too made a few but had difficutly squaring the bottom ~ thanks to a board member providing a visual tutorial I was able to finish them. They are very fast, inexpensive and fun gifts. Thanks for sharing yours with us.
