qayg drawstring bag

Yesterday afternoon, completely out of the blue, I decided to dump the contents of my two full to the brim scrap bins and start making quilt as you go blocks. I love this technique as I greatly enjoy turning scraps into lovely new projects, and I also find all that repetitive stitching super relaxing.

This was my first block and I was super pumped and started thinking that maybe I should make enough blocks to make a quilt. Yes, definitely an overly ambitious thinking, especially since my quilting mojo is nowhere to be found these days :(

So, not surprisingly, after making just four blocks I was pretty much done and accepted the fact that the qayg scrappy quilt was not in my future at the moment.

I trimmed two of the blocks to measure 10'' wide x 11'' tall and turned them into a simple, but totally adorable drawstring bag. (click here for a free tutorial if you'd like to make a drawstring bag as well)

I love how it turned out and will definitely find good use for this cutie.

Have you tried qayg before? Do you enjoy this technique? I'd love to know.

Thanks for reading friends. Hope you have a fun and creative day.
