Rag Bags

So the new craze is using the big shot with fabric to create the rag bags. Here are a couple that I made for a fabric swap that I participated in. I used the scallop square die to cut the fabric. I used to do a lot of quilting when I was younger and I do have to say, this does cut down on the cutting time for sure! There are plenty of blogs with directions of how to make these bags, so I will spare the details here, but if you need directions, please let me know. The first picture shows two bags I made, one with the seams out, showing the scalloped edge, and the other with the seams in, for a cleaner front. I used Certaintly Celery 5/8" grosgrain ribbon for the handles.

Here is another one I made with different fabric and using Basic Black ribbon for the handles.
