Bags from bits and bobs

I wanted some bags to hold various craft items - my selvages, buttons, zips, bias binding, tags, ribbon...... I finally got around to making a start. I made two bags on my recent retreat. One for buttons which I have decorated with various antique and found buttons and the other bag for my selvage edges. They both started with the same base, the sleeve from the 100% linen shirt that I made the cushion from. So that shirt is now used up completely.

These bags are not big but are perfect for the use I wanted. Fully lined using left over bits of quilting material. Not to sure about the handles though.


  1. Those are really cute bags. I made a pillow cover from selvedges and it's one of my favorites.

  2. I love your button detailing, very cute!


Thanks so much for stopping by. I love that you took time out to comment on my blog.
