It’s a Quick and Easy Project; we were finished in a couple of hours. And that included time for some show and tell, a few stories, and some treats.
All you need is an orphan block – one that is all alone in the world – a square of batting, a square of backing and some zip lock plastic bags.
You make a quilt sandwich and sew the plastic bags into the middle and … see the Resource tab for PDF instructions to print out.
Purse Pals are really handy; you can fill the pockets with:
- safety pins
- headache tablets
- lip balm
- wet wipes
- finger nail clippers
- [insert your idea here]
These are great as a “man gift” for a pickup truck glove compartment.
Or you could make it bigger use gallon bags to carry hand stitching projects with you.
The results were as diverse as the quilters who made them.
What a light hearted time with these warm hearted stitchers who shared the afternoon with me!
There’s more information (class instructions) on our Resource tab if you want to gather some friends to stitch together. My friend, Neville, suggested that this would be a great project for the Guild Boutique at our Quilt Show next spring.
I think she’s on to something there! What are your favorite boutique projects?
