Humbug Bag is a twisted tote that makes a perfect "little something" gift--for teachers, grandkids, neighbors, babysitters, etc. The shape is based on a traditional 19th century English candy, from which the bag takes its name. These are exceptionally quick, easy, and fun to make (make one in less than an hour).
This is a terrific pattern for someone just learning to quilt . . . but great, too, for experienced quilters who just can't seem to find time to work on a "real" quilt but crave a quick quilting fix! This small project also makes a great canvas for embroiderers and beaders to practice their skills.
Your "something extra" with this pattern: A sheet of gift tags, ready to photocopy. Simply cut them apart and sign to give your gift a very professional polish.
Three sizes are included but it's easy to adjust dimensions for your own purposes.
