The health kit bags for 2016

I've probably mentioned these before.  Every year, my church collects towels, washcloths, shampoo, and other assorted health items, fill bags and give them away to the homeless.
This year I decided to give them a challenge and made 90 bags.  Here they are.   I know they are greatly appreciated and I love using my talent for something like this.  The fabric I've been using lately is the cotton quilt backing found at  It's a good sturdy cotton and comes in a wide variety of colors and patterns.

Happy New Year sewing!

I did a fair amount of sewing over the new year's long weekend.
Found this pattern online:

And made it out of some heavy cotton that used to be curtains in my last apartment:
Enjoy!  The pattern is pretty quick and easy, and makes a nice bag.

Here's another picture, with the bag stuffed with THREE of my jackets!  It's HUGE.  I love it.
