Yesterday, in class, some of the students, including myself, opted to learn some new skills by making a strip bag.
Some people used part of a jelly roll, some students shared a jelly roll; I cut my own strips from my ever-growing stash (and to think that just twelve months ago my stash consisted of ten fat quarters!)
In class we had to choose six strips for the front and the back of the bag, and another four strips for the sides. By the end of the class, I had this:
Now I just have to make another matching piece.
I’m looking forward to the next class when there will be pockets and interfacing and possibly even quilting!
