Mail Sack Bags

Six Mail Sack bags finished!

A couple of weeks ago I did a fabric pull of canvas.  My cousin Brooke is legally blind, she can see about 10% of what she should, so she really can't sew.  She sent me a photo of a bucket bag, nothing special, and asked if I could make one.  I told her, Sure, but wouldn.t you rather have something like this:

I'd made these two for Sharon and myself.  So I made Brooke a Mail Sack bag, and when it was finished, I thought, "That was fun, I think I'll make some more!  In the last two weeks, I've made a total of six mail sack bags.

I've worn glasses since I was 8 years old, for 64 years.  This bag is for me!

All the bags have the same aqua and white polka-dot lining and mixed up pockets.  I think those have become my signature.  Now, I ready to get back to the Lawn Diamond quilt that I took a much needed break from.

May your bobbins always be full,


  1. Jan, how did you make the bag? Do you have a pattern you'd share? I LOVE it!

    1. Yes, I used the Mail Sack Cross Body Bag pattern from Pink Chalk Studio. You can do a google search to find it, but here's one link to an etsy seller.
