Finally finished!

A couple of years ago I decided I was tired of buying wrapping paper at Christmas!  I decided to make some quilted bags to reuse each year.  I cut squares, sewed disappearing nine patches, quilted the bodies and added canvas handles and bottoms.  Today I finished up the little hand work on all ELEVEN.  I made one for each member of my family, however I think I might have been a little over zealous in my desire to  have the bags large enough!  Here they are:
Had to move Simba off of them, he apparently approves!  About the over-sizing, I folded ten of them and put them into one bag--
I think these should hold any and all gifts!  But I probably need to make some smaller (and less involved) bags as well.  If I ever need extra laundry bags or bags to hold king size quilts these should do the trick!

Big To Do off the list!

Oh that is a funny post. But you have them done! I thought that is what they were for. I would not make any smaller, as you can always put two or three gifts inside if need be.

Lovely work. Love the crochet blankets too.

Excellent gift bags! I would so love to pull my gift out of one of them. :)
