Bonus Easter Bags for The Grands

I can’t remember the last time if ever, I purchased a pre-made Easter basket.  This year, however, I decided to make bags for The Grands.

I used a reversible Trick-or-Treat Bag pattern by Kenzie Mac.  I fell in love w/this pattern several years ago after seeing it at the AQG Quilt show in Mesa, AZ. I especially LOVE the jute webbing handle!

I made the first bag for no one in particular, using the lovely Hidden Garden by Miriam Bos for Birch Fabrics .

After showing it to my middle son, (who is temporarily living back at home w/me), and telling him how it’s actually a pattern for a Trick-or-Treat Bag,  he suggested making the reverse side in Halloween fabric so The Grands can use it for trick-or-treating too. Duh! It doesn’t have to be Easter on both sides!  I can’t believe I didn’t think of that on my own!

So that’s what I did.

I love how they turned out. Now to fill them w/goodies!

Have a great holiday weekend.

WHOOMP There IT Is! #10

As some of you know I am a member of the Quilters Anonymous chapter of the Arizona Quilters Guild.  Tonight was our Christmas party and I had such a wonderful time.

This is where I sat. Our hostess did a magnificent job of decorating the table.

And she gave us all a bunch of goodies too!

It was a potluck party and there was a ton of yummy food however I was so concerned w/getting as much of that yummy food in my belly as quickly as possible, that I forgot to take a pic.

We played a gift exchange game. Whoever wanted to participate had to bring something handmade by them. This is what I made for the exchange. A pin cushion, thread/scrap catcher. I hope the recipient loves it as much as I love mine.

We sat in a giant circle and someone read a story over the microphone.  Whenever we heard the word “left”, we passed the gift we were holding to the left, and when we heard the word “right”, we passed the gift we were holding to the right.  It was a hoot! Then we went around the circle to show our gifts and tell who made them.  

I got this adorable tote bag with Christmas colored mustaches on it. It’s lined w/my favorite color and w/the same exact fabric I used to line a bag I made for myself!

Here’s a pic of all my goodies together.

Are you having any fun this holiday season?

Now it’s your time to share about whatever you want.
