MORE ON THE BLOG BAG CHALLENGE

You might remember reading a post earlier this year when I shone the spotlight on JANOME  customer, Ann Bown, in Campbell River, BC. She had been doing a whole lot of sewing for Rose Harbour House. Click on this if you missed that post.

WELL…..the 2 new owners of THE QUILTED BEAR in Ladner, BC (Dawn & Carol) and their customers had a special sewing event where they made a bunch of bags for the janomelife bag challenge. I am happy to say that all these bags have now been filled with the donated toiletries & toothbrushes etc and are on their way to Rose Harbour House in Campbell River for distribution before Christmas.  Thank you so much to the staff & customers at  The Quilted Bear who made such lovely bags.  Here are some pics to inspire you:

About half of these bags were made by staff & customers at THE QUILTED BEAR in LADNER, BC. The rest were rustled up by me during a bumper bag sewing frenzy during the summer! As I can make a bag in about 15 -20 minutes (not counting the embellishment) it does go pretty quickly!

isn't this a lovely bag design: has a zipper about 2/3 of the way up one side & a little ribbon handle to carry it. Thank you to the ladies at THE QUILTED BEAR  for these bags.  And what fun fabrics!

More bags by Liz: regular style zipper bags and humbug bags. All these humbug bags were embellished with rows of machine decorative stitching in a variety of decorative threads before being trimmed & sewed up into the distinctive HUMBUG candy shape.
