friendship bag tutorial.

02 August 2009

need a little gift to send your quilty pals???
here's an adorable & quick 'go to' gift that will brighten any quilters day.

yall will need sixteen 1 1/2" x 5" strips of your choice.
{2 each of 8 different prints.}

i used honey bun strips.

sew 8 of your strips together to make a 8 1/2" x 5" piece.
press.

rinse and repeat.
{yall will need 2 of these pieces.}

attach a 8 1/2" x 5" piece of fabric in between your two strip pieces.

layer your pieced top on some warm & white batting.

quilt as desired.
it might feel funny to quilt without a backing, but yall can do it.

trim your excess batting off.

fold your quilted piece in half matching strips with strips.
sew all the way down on both sides.

we're gonna box the corners now.
fold your fabric down to make a triangle.
mark a line 1 1/2" from your point.

stitch on your drawn line.

cut off excess to make a 1/4" seam allowance.
rinse & repeat to do the other side.

turn your bag right side out.
see those cute little boxed corners???
adorable.

cut two 2 1/4" x 10" strips to make handles.
{if you don't want handles, skip the next few steps.}

fold your strip in half width wise, press.

fold the left side in towards the center, press.
fold the right side in towards the center, press.

fold both sides together, press.

sew down the open side.
{i used a feather stitch.}

pin the handles in place.
i chose to do mine on either side of the 2 middle strips.

stitch your handles in place using a 1/8" seam allowance.

your handles will look like so.
rinse & repeat to do the other side.

take a 14" x 8 1/4" piece {for lining} and fold in half and stitch down both sides.

box the corners on your lining just like you did the bag itself.

insert your liner into your bag, right sides together.

stitch around the top of your bag.

seam rip about 1" on your liner so that you can pull the bag through.

pull the bag out through the opening.

whip stitch that 1" opening closed again.

push the liner back down into your bag.

stitch around the top of your bag.
just make sure that you keep the handles out of your way.

and voila...you have a darn cute bag!!!
{you can even make it without the handles to make a cute little catch all bag.}

throw in a few charm packs to complete your gift.
{or maybe a few fat quarters & some rick rack.}
there's endless possibilities to what will make quilters happy.

hope yall enjoy.

toot your own horn!!!
if you make this, add the pic to my p.s. i quilt: sew & tell flickr group.

and for those inquiring minds:
fabric featured in tutorial=patisserie by fig tree quilts for moda.

Pin It!

Crafty Girls Workshop said...

Rachel,
This bag tutorial is awesome! Oh and how I love that Patisserie and I even have a honey bun of it at home! I have some teeny eensty weensty request, is there any possible way to put this lovely tutorial in a printable PDF format so that I can print it and have it close at hand when I'm making one? Actually, if you need help doing that I can help you create the PDF. I guess Moda Bakeshop really spoiled me with printable PDFs of their tutes. Thanks so much for the hard work you undoubtably put into the lovely tutorial!

Molly said...

Hi Rachel! Just made a bag for the swap, but my daughter has claimed it for herself! :) It's just the right size for her...it'll be fun to fill these with goodies for the swap! :) Thanks for the tute, super easy!

ozjane said...

Great tutorial.......I made up a bag with strips recently after looking at one in a blog somewhere and she had quilted in lines going down, fairly close together. I tried it and it looks good.
On another bag I make I quilt before lining and I quilt from the back...I use fusible fleece so know it is stuck down and find I can easily see what I am doing from the back. Works best with an all over print and no joins. But is fun.
I am itching to try this one......have to go out and post stuff.........bother.

ozjane said...

sorry wrong blog put in the spot. Had one on the cut and paste and thought it was mine.

Fabulous! Love it!

Kelly O. said...

Rachel--this bag is so sweet! I have been soooo wanting to do a swap but sooo scared (my sewing is coming along but I feel a bit out of my league with some of these ladies)
I'm scared to enter the swap but you make it look so easy! hmmmm...
cold feet...
but your bag is great!

boysmum2 said...

Have just completed a bag, not totally perfect but for a first time attempt I am pleased. Will post a picture soon. Do you use pinking scissors to cut your material, noticed the triangle edge on your material. Does this work better, easier or just what you choose to cut with?? Interested to know. Thanks for the tutorial, was simple and easy to follow.

Tania @ Larger Family Life said...

This is wonderful!

I'm off to dust down my sewing machine.

JRZ Jenn said...

oh my goodness! Too adorable. I'm going to see if I can make one before the swap because I'm not sure if I'll have time with an almost 8 month old who runs me ragged! I'd love to participate in the swap, but not sure about the time constraints. I love your tutorial though!

QuiteNice said...

You have made me a follower. Love your blog.

Cheryl said...

Rachel, this bag is adorable, just like everything that you do! Thanks for the tutorial, I'm going to join in the swap, it just looks so fun!

charlie said...

I just found you from Moda Bakeshop and I am so happy that I did. This bag is just precious and will be the perfect gift to fill for a certain sister-in-law and partner in crime. Thank you so much for creating such a terrific tutorial and sharing it with all of us.

I want to add how much I'm enjoying your music while I am here and look forward to many re-visits. I would so love to get in on your swap but feel I may be too late. How do they work???

Aida said...

i love the bag..soooooo cute! i'm joining the swap :)

charlie said...

I am new to this so just how DO I register for this swap?? Anything else I need to know??

Librarynan said...

Thanks, R! This lks like someting I could make - I've always wanted to do a bag... and I can do a swap, too! YYYAAAYY !

charlie said...

I poked around long enough and found the "obvious" on how to register. As I looked down the list of participants I got more and more excited. And when I only saw 2 entries from Minnesota I figured we needed to be represented better than that. This is my first time doing a swap so I am jumping in with both feet. I love bags and I am very much looking forward to see where my partner is from. How fun is this!!??

Miss Nancy said...

Great little bag. Wonderful tutorial. Thanks so much for sharing.

Wow, what a cute bag, I want one at once!

Dear Rachel,
Thank you so much for your tutorials.

Hi Rachel
I have just made your frienship bag for a Swap. Loved your tutorial was so easy to follow and real pleasure to make. Many thanks for sharing.
Luv Sophie xxxx

Denise said...

Oh my! This is a fantastic tutorial. I'm going to make one but enlarge it so I can take it to/from the library with all those books I get for the kiddos. Thank you so much!

Tina said...

I just found your blog and I love it. Actually, I just bought my very first rotary cutter today! I have been sewing for a while, but quilting not so much. I am going to give this project a try. Thanks for sharing!

Vacuum Queen said...

So...what is the final size of the bag? I'm thinking it looks kindof smaller than I want. I'll have to figure out how to make it bigger if it's small. Let me know...
Thanks!

Maeve said...

Rachel, is there any way you can post the tutorial minus all the comments so that it alone can be printed out (to save paper and ink)? I could keep my computer turned on and look at the photos while sewing, of course, but it would be so much easier to have a copy of it beside me as I work. Thanks. Maeve

nrnoodle said...

Rachel this little bag was so fun to make. This is the second project I have made from your blog. Your tutorials are awesome. I made this little bag with out handles and with batiks. I am going to give it to my daughter for Christmas so she can set it on her dresser to hold odds and ends. Thank you again. I will continue to follow your blog for your next burst of creativity.

Lisa B said...

I just made one of these to send to someone for a gift swap. Your directions were so easy to follow and my bag is so cute!!

Fairy Bread said...

I am meant to be finishing a quilt today, but I couldn't resist making this gorgeous bag to "wrap" my Mum's Christmas present. Curse you for posting such easy to follow step by step instructions, showing how cute this bag can be , and for making me believe I can actually make this with relative ease.

Just kidding. Your bag and instructions totally rock! Thanks for sharing.

Shlamoof said...

I always have wanted to make one, but they looked so comlicated and I didn't really feel like learning all the technicals to sewing. But this tutorial is practically idiot poof! Thank you so much!!!! These are the kind of turorials I need. I think I will whip up a few for Christmas :D I am so excited now. You made my day.

Kayren, Pink Daisy Girl said...

Hi, Rachel,
I made the original bag and goofed up the box corners, and then I altered the pattern to make it bigger, and made the box corners correctly. Here's the link if you want to check it out:
http://pinkdaisygirl.blogspot.com/2009/12/so-so-much-better.html
The one from the smaller bag I posted the day before that.

I'm going to try your disappearing 9-patch soon! I have it printed out.

Blessings,
Kayren

Zeralda said...

Absolutely stunning! I will need to try this. For clarification, could you please tell me what 'rinse' means in this context? It's not like rinsing dishes, I presume...

Dana said...

Just made this bag. I see more in my future. thanks for the great tutorial.

Hugs,Patti

Raweth said...

Hi! I read your tutorial recently and actually had a go at making this bag this afternoon. Two hours later and I'm so happy with the results! I tried adding some pockets into the lining, but they weren't as successful as I'd hoped. :) Overall, I'm really happy with the finished result, and your tutorial was so easy to follow! Thankyou! I think I'll have a go at making a slightly larger one some other time!

Danny said...

Nice tutorial. By the way what a bunch of video blogs related are in the web!

Elizabeth said...

I've been wanting to do this forever. I used a jelly roll, so I made my bag a bigger, and I've only got the outside done so far, but you can take a peek at it here (scroll down almost to the bottom of the post): http://emsewandsew.blogspot.com/2010/07/frolic-finishes.html

I just came across your site today and I am so glad that I did. I have been making quilt bags for a couple of months now and wanted to make one just like this. So now I will start making these lovely bags. Thank you so much for sharing. I live in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

SewLindsaySew said...

Hi Rachel,

Thank you so much for inspiring one of my first "real" sewing projects! Your step-by-step photo tutorial was amazing and has given me confidence to move onto more sewing endeavors. And it's left me with a product that I am actually proud to show off! (Not the case for all of my projects...!)

I hope it's okay, but I recently linked to your blog when writing about my experience with the project! I'm still learning about blog etiquette so I thought I'd let you know. :)

GCTink74 said...

~ Awesome tutorial...I used the main bag instructions and made my 7 year-old a bag for her birthday. The pictures and easy instructions made my first bag a piece of cake!! I lmost messed up...I didn't notice to put the handles in before sew lining in...that would have been disasterous...maybe could add that part in the tut =D ~

Vanilla said...

Hi Rachel,

I'm going to make your Friendship Bag and I just posted about it in my blog. Hope it's OK with you!!!
Thanks for this wonderful tutorial. It seems easy make, and it is very well explained.

I like the bag. I LOVE the tutorial! Thanks for explaining everything so well. Hope to make one soon. When I do, I'll send you a picture so you can see it!

Diane said...

I love your bag and your tutorial. I picked this bag to make for each one of the ladies at an upcoming retreat. So... I'm making 13 of them. The most amazing thing... ONE fat quarter yields EXACTLY the amount of pieces for a single bag. So, 13 fat quarters - mix and match the parts and sew 'em up! I used a collection of fat quarters I've had for years. Just Excellent!

Jamie Gupton said...

Aaahhhh!! Adore this! Perfect for my crafty friend who makes-everything-has-everything!! Pin, Pin, Pin'd! ♥ Thank you

Jamie Gupton said...

And Diane... Just ONE fat quarter, really?? Wow! Buy 10 of them and mix them up for 10 beautiful bags! Love even more, now...

Stephanie Durham said...

I just made this bag today. LOVED IT!! So much easier than I thought it would be. I am going to make these for teacher gifts and put different goodies in them. I am also going to play with the size to see if I can get them just a wee bit bigger.
Let me know if you want a pic and I'll try to email it to you.

Connie said...

Cute tutorial Rachel!

mmhb43 said...

I am new to quilting and I just don't understand what you mean by "rinse". Would you please e-mail me at mmhb43@cfl.rr.com to explain that to me. Thank you in advance and I appreciate your help in learning how to quilt. I want to make these bags for my granddaughters for Christmas and don't want to start the project until I understand what I am supposed to do. Thanks again.

I love this tutorial! I am just getting back to some sewing time, after a busy phase of life, and this tutorial inspired me to get in there and make something!!! I am in the middle of it. The instructions are fun and clear. :-) Sooooo many sewing instructions in books & etc. I can read three times and still sit there and say, "WHAT?????" But this one is awesome!!! Thank you!!!!!!!!

Unknown said...

Thank you so much for this tutorial. I made one in under 2 hours today and LOVE it. So satisfying.

Thank you so much for posting this tutorial! I am a new quilter and wanted to make a project for my Mom for Christmas.One that wasn't too hard, but also helped me learn something new too.. This was perfect! Your instructions were so easy to understand and follow. I'm going to make one for myself next! Thank you very very much!

Love the little bag. I do have a bit of trouble with the American language though. I understand that "yall" really means "you" but why do I "rinse" the bag. There is no other washing instructions given so I am a bit confused.
