Pants Bags galore :)

Over at Crazy Mom Quilts, Amanda Jean's Friday Finishes are made from scraps so I feel like I'm in very good company this week with my little finishes!

This afternoon, DH met Mutter (my mum) at the train station to hand over the 7 ... yes, the 7!! Pants Bags she is taking to Germany on Sunday: they're for my German Aunts and cousins. Here are the last two, which I finished last night:


And all seven:



I love making these - all different designs and fabrics, created in the moment, mainly from scraps with the occasional Fat Quarter (from my stash) used for the borders. They're so lovely to make and even lovelier to give away (though I was seriously tempted to keep the green one!) and now there'll be Pants Bags in Germany too ... I'm taking over the World ... LOL!

Also linking up with Sarah:

  3. While I wouldn't swap mine for anything, I do love the green one! Which country do you plan to take over next in your plan for world domination?!?

  4. I hope you succeed in your aim, they are all delightful. Also, a thought occurred to me - if you plan to take over the world with Pants Bags, then it follows that those of us who are lucky enough to already own one of your bags must be world leaders !!
