Please ... Help!

Oh, dear - this is no good! Maybe 13 years of quilting isn't enough to follow simple instructions and Girlfriend! is in Canada now, so she can't help!

This gorgeous little bag just needs to be stitched across the bottom and drawstrings run through to complete it! I have turned it inside out? because I know I can, and then the little pockets are on the inside!

Does anyone, please, have better instructions - my poor little brain is sooo strained!

Oh, it's all taking away from the pretty fabrics - I think the little penguins are just gorgeous and Miss Kitty talks for herself - all the way from Japan and just beautiful - I guess if you are a Miss Kitty fan, that is, which of course I am!

I have lots to be happy about this weekend, but not this! Hope your weekend is lovely!

Lurline, I made 20 of these little origami bags last year for our club retreatees. I can do it with my eyes closed but not sure I can descibe it in a comment box. Good luck

Hey Lurline, I've never seen this pattern before, but it intrigues me. I will try one out and see if I can figure it out. If I can, then I'll do a tutorial with pictures. Sorry to say that I probably won't be able to work on it this weekend though since my sister and family are coming to visit. I'll check in later and see if you've gotten help.

Love the fabric!

Hi Lurline. Love your blog and love your name, "Lurline". I can't help you with your plea. :(

Since we both love quilts, I wanted to share this post with you. It is from my blog. Take Care.

I did a tutorial for an origami bag just like this. Have a look on my right side bar and click on tutorial, it should come up. This one may be a little different in your instructions but it looks the same.

Never did this pattern, but I will try it.

Sorry Lurline - I always had trouble with this pattern and didn't try it after the retreat. It's meant to be easy - LOL. Will go and check out Janet's tutorial...
Big hugs...

Hey Lurline, I had fun working this one out last night and I posted a photo tutorial of what I did to make the bag. I hope it helps you!
