See Giveaway below!
I had a lot of the fabrics left from the Ruffled Apron Swap, and a friend had asked me to make a grocery bag dispenser for her daughter. I love the bright, cheery colors of the fabrics I'd used, and they were handy, so I zipped on over to Moda Bake Shop because I remembered they had a very pretty patchwork, quilted grocery bag dispenser recipe there some time ago. I easily found the recipe, and whipped one up. Then I quickly made three more - sometimes when I make something I like, I just can't stop making more of it! My DIL, Autumn, was laughing at me because I showed her the first one I made - ok, actually, I MADE her look at it...I tell my kids they HAVE to look at my sewing stuff as part of the "rent" haha (since they don't actually pay any). She said "Is that going out the door?" I said yes...and she giggled and said "Umm...so YOU are going to keep using the grocery bag dispenser you have? THE PLASTIC BAG FULL OF PLASTIC BAGS, hanging on the pantry doorknob???"
|My...ahem...grocery bag dispenser...|
Red face, here....I guess maybe I should designate one of the other three to keep for myself... At any rate, I LOVE the way these turn out! Years ago, I made the "regular" ones - one fabric, one layer...but these quilted ones have so much more form, and of course, being able to use more than one fabric is a quilter's bonus :-)
Start with a stash of fabrics OR a Charm Pack...
Create a quilted, patchwork/batting/backing sandwich...

Now, here's the Giveaway - I cut WAY more 5" charm squares than I really needed for this project, even for FOUR of them! So I am giving away a 60+ pack of coordinating 5" squares from more than 30 different fabrics, PLUS a finished grocery bag dispenser!
