I went to my twice a month qilting group in Luxembourg at the AWCL on wednesday and we are making bags for christmas to sell for charity. Normally we make quilts for the soldiers but as we have so much donated christmas fabric to use up we thought we would make some bags. I helped Jean who runs the group make a template for a bag and sew it up but I thought it was to flimsy with quilting cotton. So when I got home I got out some home decor fabrics someone gave me and tried to make it again. A lot harder to sew as it is much thicker but it is a much sturdier bag. I am quite pleased with it.
