Pink Ribbon Bags

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and my mom is a 6 year survivor and fighter of Breast Cancer.  Fabric City got in a few bolts of this fabric and I fell in love with the simplicity of it, but didn't know what I was going to do with it. I finally bought 2 fat quarters and a couple zippers and decided to make little cosmetic bags. My mom can use it to keep her meds in and I'll have one for my small sewing projects.
 Last night when I should have been working on samples, I reorganized my sewing closet and pulled out the projects I want to take to retreat. I even pulled out the wolf thinking I might work on it for Paul for Christmas, since he's been hinting that he'd really like it. I found my Sewline Pencil in it! I've been searching for that thing for 3-4 months and finally just bought a new one! I also found a project bag I'd been looking for. I couldn't believe my luck. I'm now much more organized and looking forward to cutting out some projects for retreat.
I quilted up the two fat quarters with warm and white batting and used Atkinson Design zippers. I love the zippers. They are cheap and so quick to put in!
A bag for me!
A bag for my mom!
The one on the right is a bit wider in the bottom, but they are basically the same size.
I love these quick and easy projects.

The pink ribbon bags are so pretty. And blessings to your mom as a survivor. My mother and 2 aunts also had breast cancer. It is a cruel disease!

Cute bags! I used the ribbon fabric for the Memorial and Survivor quilt blocks I made last month. Loved it! I was so glad to help with our local Breast Cancer event last month.
