Papa's Got a Brand New Bag

What's your bag? Mine is Maggie and Maggie Jr.

I think they turned out very cute. I think Junior would make a great gift card holder.

I got fat quarters to make them with. Out of two coordinating fabrics you could cut out 4 Maggies and probably twice the Juniors.

When Cheri was over, she had a great suggestion for making the template. She suggested tracing it onto freezer paper. That worked great because I just ironed it onto the fabric and cut around it.

I made my loops out of the fabric using one of the left over fabrics, a 1/2" bias tap maker and fray check. I like the result.

I'd also recommend fusible velcro for the closures. The bag is small enough that it would be hard to sew on the non-fusible velcro.

Look for them at Glads at the next Scraptamers!
