Crafting - Altered Muslin Bags

I don't do much creating these days, but give me some great inspiration and I jump right in. Jackie recently inspired me with her samples for an upcoming Bags and Tags class (see a tiny little peek here.) The class was postponed, but I couldn't wait and had to make a few sets. 

Here are my bags and tags, made from bits and pieces within easy reach on my worktable. The two above are my favorites. Low tones are usually much easier for me to work with.

But I do love the brights, too. The little aqua print hexagon is one I saved from a batch of quilt pieces I sold recently - just couldn't let it go! The tag in the bluebird bag will probably be changed out or added to as I'm not totally pleased with it yet. 

Have you tried altering some of these little bags? They're a great size for a quick project and a fun way to use a few favorite bits and paper scraps. 

I'm looking forward to Jackie's class because I love her style, and she provides such a unique stash of embellishments for classes. She always shares new techniques, as well as her fun-loving personality and amazing homemade goodies! If you're local and would like to join in on a class, watch Jackie's blog or the Paper Crown blog for upcoming dates.


  1. I've never thought of doing this. What a fun idea! Love your creations!
