Clicker Bag




 




I took a class the other day at our rec
center and learned to make these clicker bags.  It's actually about the size of a make up bag.  Its called a clicker bag because it clicks at the top when you open it.






                This is what makes it "Click"...


We cut two pieces of tape measure
and sewed it into the top of the bag.
I rounded the edges with scissors and
then wrapped the ends in duct tape so the
 sharp edges wouldn't eventually
poke through.  Yesterday I picked up more
fabric to try and make another one.




Hopefully I'll be able to follow the directions and figure it
 out on my own...we'll see about that!  If anyone wants
 the directions, leave me your email address and I will
send them to you!

Those are really cute. I wish I knew how to sew. Maybe it's a good thing I can't because I would be at the sewing machine all day long.

went to a quilting meeting the other night and they showed us the clicker bag. Of course they said to google for the pattern, so here I am.
I would love to try it out before I visit my daughter in Montreal. Won't she be surprised.
Thanks so much.
