Sewing Notes



So I knew I needed to make a gift bag for Mary's shawl, and I also had the baby quilt that I finished a while ago kicking around without a gift bag.     It being the last day of a random four day weekend, I decided to tackle that today.   (I had the shawl up on my bed drying and two gift bags done before 10:30.    It was a good morning.)

The top bag was simpler, with a fold over channel for the ribbon.    I experimented a bit with the shawl bag.   It's a got a folded channel in the middle.   I like that, but I don't think I like how little I folded over the edge - the inside of the fabric's going to be pretty visible.    This is did end up being a rather wide bag, so I think that was part of the problem.   If it had been taller, I think I would have sewn down a wider hem for the top.    Food for thought if I try this again.
