The 4 fat quarters are cut into 10 1/2 inch by 9 1/2 inch rectangles. They are all joined together and folded in half and you have the bag and the lining in one. On the front half I ironed some iron on pellon. I quilted the rectangles just from corner to corner. With the 5th fat quarter you make the handles and the binding. You then bind the top of the bag and the 2 sides. You fold the bag till you get the shape you like and stitch up where the ends of the bag meet, making sure you leave enough of the top layer to fold down and sew the button on. The bottom of the bag is then sewn accross and about 4 1/2 inches from the bottom corner of the bag, make a triangle and stitch accross to shape the bottom of the bag. Make the handles and stitch on. A very quick and easy project. I think I will keep this one as I usually give away the things I make.

Disorderly Threads. These little bags are so easy to make. I made this one for my Grandson, Cooper for his Birthday. I filled it with colouring in pencils as it makes a great pencil case. I have been told that he is the envy of his class mates, The bag was done in two hoopings with the tail and fins done in the first hooping. The bag is finished off in the second hooping and just a little bit of hand sewing to finish it off when the bag is turned inside out.

It is an embroidery machine applique design and I bought the design from Kidz Applique. I will do the other design if I can find a yellow T Shirt. I think this Minion is so cute.

It was a very interesting idea and the blocks could be put together in whatever pattern that you liked.
We cut the corner out of the blocks and than stitched them to a different coloured block with a 1/4 inch allowance. We did this 3 times on each block and the corner of each block had 3 different colours on it. Just something a bit different. It was a very enjoyable day seeing all the different ideas that the ladies came up with.
