    This guy sure did!

    I was asked to make a quilt for a warden at another crrectional facility here in New Mexico out of his Crown Royal Bags - all 45 of them. I sent him several links to pics of some & he liked one similar to this. :)

    There were a couple of unique bags like one made from synthetic gold suede, one from dark purple velour and the baby bag that I sewed to another square of the gold faux suede. It is now a pocket as I left the front top unsewn.

    Thanks for looking!

    Very cool...love the colours...Not sure what kind of bevvy Crown Royal is, but I'm sure the manufacturers would be keen to see your creation.

    Crown Royal is a brand of whiskey that is sort of expensive - at least I think it's pricey. The bottles come in a box and are in a bag inside the box. The bottle is sort of shaped like a flat crown.

    Haven't bought a bottle of liquor since I made my last Kahalua cake when I was in Wisconsin. The small bottle (don't know the amount in it) runs about $20 US. There are other kinds that come in the different bags and they are more. There is one "flavor" that runs upwards of $400.00 a bottle. I think the bottle that comes in the gold faux suede bag is about $80.00. Don't know about the purple velour bag's contents. There were also some black bags & I don't know what was in them, either.

    How unique - my daughter used to keep her crayons in a Crown Royal bag!
    Always brought a bottle (or two) to our dear friend in Prince Edward Island. He has since passed away - we toasted many a time!
