 Before I tell you about this bag, I have an important announcement.  There are two Craft Days scheduled this year at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  This has always been a popular event and in order to accommodate everyone, Chris added an additional Craft Day to the calendar.  Originally the two events were scheduled for Friday, November 21, and Saturday, November 29.  However, things have snowballed.  There are far too many things going on right now and the Craft Day scheduled for Friday, November 21, has been moved to Friday, December 5.  If you prefer, there is still room in the Saturday, November 29 session.  Just call the shop and let Chris know what you would like to do.  I’m looking forward to this fun event.  You can see what we made last year here
And what we made in 2012 here.

About that bag.  I made my first snap bag.  I can’t find the tutorial that I used but there are a multitude of them on the internet.  Tutorials by Sew We Quilt; Just Another Hang Up; Sweet P Quilting; and Tattered Garden, are just a few.  This is such a fun bag to make I’m definitely going to make more.  
  • The Jingle Bell Hop is Nov 14 through 22.  Mark your calendar now.  With the purchase of your $5 passport you will receive a free pattern.  Each participating shop has designed an exclusive ornament that you may purchase as well as a table topper kit designed to compliment the free pattern.  Participating shops will have extended evening shopping hours for your convenience.
Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Those craft days sound like so much fun!

I, of course, love your bag. I've made a few of those in the past. Yours looks a bit more involved than the ones I made since your outside looks pieced. Looks great!

Generosity has no bounds. Above are the women in the Quilts For Kids group at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Left to right, Henrietta, Phyllis, Nancy, Carol, Karen. These women donate their time, fabric, money once a month to make quilts for kids who have cancer.
