    Addicted? Who's addicted?? Not me! I can quit at any time... well maybe just one more. You see, I have this fabric... Oh! Addicted! I get it.

    Snap bag? I need to go look that one up. I've not made one of those. Yet! I do have a Simplicity pattern to try out this week!!!

    I think the draw of these bags, for me, is that they can be made in a day or so. I spent several months completing several UFOs and needed a break. This is a great way to do that. Your still playing with fabric but it's almost instantaneous satisfaction with a completed project. Great fun!

    For all of you that haven't jumped in, hurry! It won't hurt a bit! I promise. You'll just have way too much fun. Trust me!

    Thank you for all the sweet comments!

    I just sent a new order to Connecting Threads and it's almost all bags. I've been bitten by the the bug too.

    The Potato Chip Bag pattern is by Paula Hughes of Quilt Country, 701 S. Stemmons #60, in Lewisville, Tx. 75067 The phone number listed on the pattern is 972-436-7022

    I picked my pattern up in a kit at one of our local quilt stores,
    http://scottiedogquilts.com.qtrop.net/
    I know she has the pattern but I don't see it on her web site.

    Hope this helps.

    Hey! I just tried googling "potato chip bag pattern" and there are several sites that are selling this pattern. Of course there were several listed that were making purses out of actual potato chip bags! Choose carefully!

    I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one that is loving this slight change of pace in the world of quilts.

    Very nice selection! I have not made any bags yet, but my quilting friends are just getting started with making them. So far I have resisted. Don't think I will hold out much longer, though.

    Oh my gosh!! You go girl! They are all so pretty, but I want one like the front blue striped one. Dang it, you are getting me in the mood again. I guess you are just as guilty as we are now... LOL!

    I'm so sorry! (NOT!) I'm afraid I am an "encourager!" Go for it!

    That front blue bag is a Bunny Hill pattern. It's her jelly roll bag and is so simple to make. I love it. Plus if you do use a jelly roll the fabric choices all go together. No ugly combinations! It's a no brainer, which I love!

    Oh, yes! I think you must make one. It's gonna happen. Why fight it??

    Thank you very much for checking out my totes!

    Yvonne, Those bags are really lovely! I am into making bags, also. I recently did one in red,white, and black Oriental print trimmed with black and I quilted the whole thing. I really enjoy this project,along with making quilts. Dot

    I don't know what to tell you. I picked up the Bow Tucks and Potato Chip patterns at the LQS. I ordered the Bunny Hill pattern from the Bunny Hill web site. I hope you can find them.

    Thank you again everyone. I've managed to make three more totes since I last wrote. This way my girls can have one of each pattern. Meanwhile, I still have none! Isn't that just the way?? I'll make mine once we get home from the wedding. That way there'll be no girls around to claim it at theirs.

    I have also caught the bug. This board is dangerous.

    This board is very dangerous or I'm very weak. I am always ording books and patterns and have no idea when I'll ever make half of them. Then the ideas at the LQS too!
    Your bags are beautiful, the girls will real enjoy them.
