Did You Want a Bag With That Quilt?!

DS informed me after dinner that he thought it would *be nice* if there was a bag to go with the quilt for his teacher...what?! excuse me?! I still had the label to do yet!

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy...

I had printed off a copy of Terry Ann's Fat Sack and thought I would try making one from the decor weight fabric I had *scored* at the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store a few weeks back. This was an incredibly easy bag and Terry Ann's direction were very user friendly. It took me about an hour to make this bag from start to finish. :) I had to fold the quilt a little on the creative side and while it is not a perfect fit~or match~it will work. DS was funny as I was trying to figure out exactly *how* to fold the quilt, he came along with the Glenn Beck Book and slipped it inside the bag, too. Now his teacher will have a book to read and a quilt to curl under and a re-usable grocery sack! How cool is that?! Going green in the gift giving :)

Well, at least it wasn't a costume he needed!

They are just never satisfied. They always want more. And we perform because we love them. LOL.

I think the quilt, the book and the bag are an awesome gift. I'm sure the teacher will love the gifts.

I love that bag - printed off the pattern so I can make one for myself. I'm trying to get in the habit of taking one in shopping with me to save on the accumulation of plastic bags. You did a great job, as always.
