Finish Friday - Mini Drawstring Bags

Maritime Modern Quilt Guild is having its first retreat!!  Woo hoo...a whole weekend of uninterrupted sewing.

We decided to have swag bags.  Everyone makes or brings a little something to put in everyone's bag.  Who doesn't love a goody bag???

I decided to make little drawstring bags (with chocolate inside).


These photos were taken on the weekend when the weather was good.  Today...not so much.  We woke to a snow and ice storm that caused school to be cancelled.  And now it's raining.  I'm still looking for Spring.





My Q-Squared bee mates are participating, so I did a little something different for them.

Man you are one BUSY bee! Don't know how you do it and work full time...I know I've said that before.
Sounds like spring anywhere north of oh maybe the Kentucky/Ohio border!! Snow in Colorado yesterday or today too I heard. Love all those sweet bags made by one sweetiepie!

Such a cute little group of goody bags! Hope you have a blast at your retreat!!

KaHolly said...

Very sweet! Everyone will love them! They come in handy for so many things! I know you're having a really good time at your retreat. Can't wait to hear all about it!

Not to make you jealous or anything, but I have roses blooming and we're about to pick the first vine-ripe tomato here in Louisiana! Of course in about two months we'll be crying about the heat and you will be enjoying perfect weather! I've said we need to migrate with the geese, but hubby doesn't seem to think we can afford it. lol
Your bags are adorable. It's going to be great fun to exchange pretties! I have a retreat in two weeks and can barely (barely) wait!

You are a sneaky sneaker. Good thing I didn't read any blogs on Friday night! :)

Linda said...

Such cute little bags you made. I love mine! Our swag bags were just plain fabulous, weren't they!

Julia D @ Jada's Quilting Adventures said...

Very cute! Love the bags and the added bonus of chocolate is fantastic!

Dena said...

I love my little bag, just wish it had chocolate in it all the time, lol.

Those are adorable!

I saw Jenn's photo of a swap bag. What a good idea. You two are giving me all sorts of ideas to share withour retreat organiser. The only downside is that all those cute, tiny bags look like a lot of work for you.

Awesome! Did you use the Drawstring Bag pattern from Jeni at In Color Order? And if so, are your bags the snack or the tiny size? Thank you.
