Plain Cotton Bags?




I love seeing what people have done with our unprinted cotton bags so i was really happy to receive an email with pictures from a lovely lady Gina who bought them for her group to decorate. The bags were designed by members of the Fat Quarters Patchwork & Quilting Group that meet in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire. They took a break from making quilts, wall hangings, patchwork bags, etc., to decorate cotton bags mostly with stamping - but one member has sewn 2 patchwork 'log cabin' squares on hers. I love the groups name i am reliably informed that fat quarters is the way patchworkers buy their fabric - a metre cut into 4 squares makes 4 quarter metres.





These eco friendly cotton bags are really great value for money as well as being reusable and enviromently friendly, the perfect viable alternative to the plastic bag. They can also be used for promotions, as a craft activity or for your child to decorate and give as presents. Knot Just Jigs also sell fabric wax crayons at a very affordable £1.49 for a pack of 8 different colours!
