Candy Cane gift bag

At the beginning of the month I was part of a blog hop called SEW SEASONAL.  I made a set of bauble hot pads with Ornament #8 for my day on the hop.  The patterns - bauble ornaments and paper pieced patterns - were free during the hop [now available for sale on Craftsy] and I really wanted to make the candy cane into something.  Being a practical soul, I decided to make it into a gift bag, an item I have listed on my 100 Day Hustle list!  Woohoo - two birds/one stone scenario!


The candy cane pattern is one by Quiet Play and the bag pattern is by A Quilting life.  I've made this bag before and LOVE it so I am pleased to make this festive version.  I like the crisp back against the red and white peppermint candy cane - all Kona fabrics.


I donated this gift bag bag (full of chocolate too) to a charity raffle at my workplace.  I hope whoever won it last night was pleased with it!  I love re-usable gift bags!  You will notice that my candy cane didn't quite match up at the top section but hey that's ok - it shows that it was handmade!!

Check out the other items being made from the Sew Seasonal blog hop Flickr group and if you have made something from the patterns - be sure to link it up [there are prizes!!].
