A Fun Project for Free-form Patchwork and Orphan Blocks!
Turn pieces of patchwork into charming bags with this easy tutorial. The bags are decorated with hand-made tassels for charming finishing touches.
This is a great project for scraps. Create free-form patchwork in a favorite combination of prints, or start with an orphan block, then turn it into a quilted bag.
Create the tassels with Pearl Cotton Embroidery Thread and the Clover Tassel Maker. The designer also recommend metal zippers with donut holes in the pulls (like these) and the Ultimate Quilt n Stitch Presser Foot for evenly spaced quilting lines. Or mark off the quilting lines with tape.
The finished bags, designed by Kim Kruzich from Retro Mama, are 8″ x 5-1/2″.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
