Yikes! Is it cold here in Michigan…something about a Polar Vortex.  Don’t really understand it, but hope it moves along soon. The cold and blowing snow kept me in all day.  I didn’t mind because I played in my sewing room!  What fun.  I’ll show you pictures later this week when the light is better for taking pictures.  Today I want to show you these project bags.  I love these bags.  Chris will be teaching a class at the Attic Window Quilt Shop  on how to make them on Thursday, Jan. 9th from 6-9.
I believe these bags above are what someone else made a couple years ago on Craft Day.  I know they are not mine because I made orange lining (no surprise there).  You can use any fabrics you want, or choose from one of the many kits that Chris has at the shop.  It just seems that a few of us loved this fabric!
My project bags get regular use.  The smaller one I use to carry my mini tablet.  The larger one is for carrying various projects to and from class or a doctor’s appointment, etc.  Now my daughter and DIL each want one, so I hope to take the class on Thursday.  I find I don’t procrastinate when I take a class.  You can easily get all three bags done during class time.  Call the shop to register.
