It's what you make of it

I have a VERY large fabric stash.  It's got skirt lengths, blouse lengths, patchwork pieces and bits-which-might-be-useful-one-day in every colour you could imagine.  Among it I found a panel printed for making a cushion.  And quite honestly although I like the pattern, there was no way it was going to be made up into a cushion for this house.  I didn't want to sling it or give it to the charity shop so it sat in the stash and glowered at me.

Over the past few weeks I have been doing some decluttering (rather more than I have reported on this blog) and the cushion panel popped its head out and mocked me again.  That was when I decided, Enough Is Enough.

So my cushion panel is now combined with leftover tape from another project to make a rather nice ragbag containing the remains of various garments which weren't good enough for the charity shop.  I've never had a rag bag before having just kept rags here and there and everywhere.  But I'm very proud of my lovely new ragbag.
Spiffy New Ragbag


  1. I'm going to make a knitting bag as a present something I've never done before. Your bag is super.

  2. Way to go, It is good to have a big stash to rummage through, there is always a surprise to be found. I have a Christmas cushion panel, it is too small for a cushion but a bag would be perfect. I can pop a present in it as well.

  3. That looks a very posh rag bag, mine just an old pillowcase hanging up in the garage :-) My next project is a quilt using a printed panel for my grandaughter.

    1. Ah, but it didn't take you until you were 63 to get a ragbag, did it? Mine had to be worth waiting for!
