Half Square triangles will TRAVEL!

I used some Leftover blocks from this quilt to make a bag!

Well....truthfully...it's still a QUILT TOP!!!
One of these days...
it'll be quilted!!!
I hope.

I WAS going to make this gift a potholder gift
like the ones I made last week.
My daughter recommended making a little bag instead.
I'm GLAD she did!
I love it!

I first quilted the outside with some diagonal lines.. 
and then...
added the zipper and lining.

Very simple.
Very sweet.

My orphan blocks DID it AGAIN!
I was also able to use some Orphan batting... LOL!!!
I sure have a LOT of little pieces around here!!!!

I'm imagining these half square triangles traveling
FAR and WIDE with their new owner!!!
She just returned from a big trip to AFRICA!
Who knows where she'll be off to next????


  1. What a lovely gift! It's such a great feeling to be able to use up those orphan to make pretty things.

  2. this is such a cute little bag! beautiful work as usual

  3. How cute, just clip the keys on the outside tab and your good to go.
    Nice job :0)

    Happy sewing

  4. It's the fast little projects that ar sometimes the most satisfying!
    Our children do seem to get around the world these days don't they?

  5. What a great little zipper bag! Makes me want to go raid my triangle tub....
