MEASURING TAPE SNAP BAGS

Once again......

Barb is doing things that she has no business doing....

Not doing what I should be doing.  (you can find the pattern here)


I guess in my defense.... sometimes a gal just has to take a break from the have toosssss.

to the want tooooooossss

. and I wanted to.

and....I had fun....

and...I couldn't just make one.

. I have actually made eleven of these....

Aren't they Purdy????



I only quilted one.

I found that they were just as nice without the quilting.



They close with a measuring tape.....I love these and they are sooooooo fast.

Jean was making these over at her blog
and she did say that she couldn't stop making the.....I understand...I understand.

they are really cute! I have never seen them before. If you find something you love, I have noticed that you will make a lot of them. and all of them pretty!

Those look fantastic, Barb! I am going to try to find that pattern somewhere and make a few of my own.

Fiesta said...

Those are cute Barb. What do you mean by they close with a measuring tape? Who carries the patterns.

Terry said...

They're adorable! :0)

Carol said...

You had fun and that's what matters! They are really cute!

Barbara said...

Wow, cute and clever and useful. Hopping over there now!

Gene Black said...

Hmmmm. I need to make one of those in a "manly fabric" to replace the small change bag I carry in my pocket. Is the measuring tape easy to work with?

Wacky Woman said...

Aren't they great? The dollar store measure tapes are just fine btw.

Jean said...

These are adorable! You must've ripped that package open when you received it and started right in on sewing. See how addictive they are? At the quilt show the other day, I saw more designs by them....watch out!

Julianne said...

Ok so now I want one... I have seen yours and Jeans.. Looks like way to much fun..

barbara woods said...

mesureing tapes? how does that work?

Mary said...

I agree. I had to buy a tape measure at the dollar store, so I could keep making them. They are fun and easy. It is great to do something you have no business playing with sometimes!

Cindy said...

I actually have this pattern, Barb, and have never used it. Bad Cindy. Yours are just too snappy and cute. Hugs

Teresa said...

So, how expensive is the measuring tape you need for these. I've been wanting to make one myself.

Lynn said...

I too have made more than my fair share of these. Like so many bags, they are addicting to make.

They make great gifts too! Make up a set quick as a wink, tie them up with pretty ribbon and you are a gift genius! Would be easy to modify to fit cell phones, iPods, readers, tablets, cameras. So fun to make these!

I have always wanted to make one of those too. Love your bags. Guess I'll have to get busy and make some too!

Brown Dirt Cottage said...
