A couple of nights of sewing and I've completed two bags for gifts. I don't think the folks getting these even know about my blog so I'm safe posting about them here. I used a pattern from The Quilt Connection called "Sack It To Ya!" - there are two sizes, I went for the smaller size on these two and I am going to create the larger size one in the green/pink cat print as well. The first bag took me several hours to complete over two days since I didn't have dedicated time to complete it and it was my trial run on the pattern. The second only took about 2 and half hours to complete - not bad!
