    Some quilted shopping bags that I have made

    I made some quilted shopping bags that I have made.

    Some I put left over quilt blocks on the fronts of them

    with some other fabric left from the quilts made up.

    and the one is a maroon shopping bag with a contrasting

    fabric lining it........


    A great way to use your stray quilt blocks.

    thank-you for looking,

    Have a great day and happy sewing !

    All of your bags are beautiful. #1 is my favorite.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Good idea.... I use orphan blocks on my bags the stores sell for under $1. That way they are personalized and I know they are mine. The checkers often comment on them.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    Wonderful Bag's & so pretty too. I really like your idea of using your extra quit bocks in making them. I bet just about all of us could do the same thing, with what we have left over!! Thank you for sharing with all of us.
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!
