If you don’t have leftover quilt squares, you can create the same look with a panel of fabric, or you can just use any piece of fabric.
When I quilt, I always have leftover squares. Sometimes squares are from a new technique that I tried, but never made enough squares to add up to something. Some squares are extras I made while making a quilt (I like strip quilting which makes creating a couple extra squares easy, and it is always nice to have a couple extra on hand just in case). In any case, I end up with a stack of ziploc baggies that have random quilt squares in them.
I decided to make little draw-string bags with the squares. These bags will make great gift bags! I wanted the bags to be lined (so that all the raw seams from the gift bag wouldn’t show), but I still wanted them to be super-easy (and super-quick) to make. I think I succeeded on all fronts… here is the tutorial.
