WiP Wednesday - Bags for Drake House

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I'm linking up with WiP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.

Monday was guild night, and it was our annual charity work meeting.  All throughout the year we collect small items for the women at Drake House, a crisis residential program for women and children in our area.  Sharon assigns us a different item each month - pocket calendars or sewing kits or travel mugs or small umbrellas - and then in August we make and stuff the bags.

I finished one bag (the striped one in the picture above) and got another one partially finished.  I brought this one home to complete, so that's what I'm working on today.

Here's the finished bag:

Please don't look at my dirty windows. 

I'll check and see if I can share the pattern.  It's pretty simple and makes a nice size, neat looking bag.  This one was made with quilter's cotton, but we've been making most of them with upholstery fabric on the outside and they look even better.

What are you working on?


  1. My friend Lora and I decided it was time we stop sending each other emails of pins we want to try and to just craft already! We had a craft night last week and decided it should really be called "Wine & Design" carrier bags


Thanks for joining the conversation!
