Even More Fabric Scraps Bags

Here are the rest of my fabric scrap bags using scraps to make the outside of the bags and storing my fabrics inside the bags.
Purple Bag filled with purple fabric scraps.

White and off-white bag. Looks elegant in all white and off-white like something for a wedding. I chose an elegant looking font for the label too.

Since I was making scrap bags already, I made this one using all selvages. I chose mostly selvages with blue on them. Side one above.

I also have a lot of men's neckties leftover from a quilt challenge I participated in years ago where you had to make a quilt using men's neckties (I won too with the most votes, yippee). Some ties are all silk and others are polyester. Here is one side of the bag.

Here is the other side of the necktie bag.

I made another bag using neckties and this one is slightly taller than the one above.

"Family photo". Smile girls, you are all so colorful. Here is the whole family of fabric scrap bags that I made. Some are large and some smaller. If I would have planned this better, I would have made them all the same large size. As you can see the smallest bags are stuffed full. But using the fabrics I had on hand as the foundation fabric, I ended up with various sizes. It was fun to make the bags and now easy to use as whenever I need a certain color I can grab that colored bag. If you want to make your own bag, check out my tutorial. (P.S. I will be adding an updated way that I do the zipper in the next day or two)
