Last Minute Holiday Crafts

I've been fighting a sore throat and a cough all week. But for some reason when I got off the bus Friday night I was inspired. I went straight to JoAnn's and bought some supplies for the project in my mind. Over the summer I made some triangle bags. For some reason I thought they would be really cute and work great as notions bags in clear vinyl. For some reason - I did not write down the dimensions this summer when I made them. This is a little long and not really wide enough - but it's being gifted anyway. Horrible - eh? First I inserted the ribbon using a reinforced zig zag. The I sewed the end seams with the wrong sides together. I stitched them also with a reinforces zig zag. Then I pressed some wide ribbon in half and stitch it over the seams with a reinforced straight stitch. The little bag is clear - making it easy to see which notions you have.
