Three Little Projects

As mentioned yesterday I showed the ASG retreat group three projects that are fun and easy. Here is the back story on each:

Five Fat Quarter Grocery Bag - If you go to and search on singlet you will get fully illustrated construction instructions. My intial attempts are posted here. The differences between those instructions and mine are:
  • I use a fat quarter for each outside and inside piece.
  • the fifth fat quarter is divided into four pieces and each is added to the 18" side of the other fat quarters to give extra length.
  • I use the scraps to make the pocket.

Overall Apron - This inspiration was in the January/February 2008 issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors however you can probably figure it out from the last photo in this post.

Japanese Market Bag - This was taught at the Quilt Festival in Houston by Nancy Hinds during Bag Lady Day. I outlined the construction steps in this post.
