"Fabric Origami Bukuro aka Japanese folded fabric bag."

Hello,

I made this bag in less than a hour this morning using up the two fat quarters I took out of the Tuesday's Treasures parcel.

Fabric Origami Bukuro.
It was very easy to make and the good thing is it fits a coffee/tea mug perfectly. You could make them up in Christmas colours and include a mug and some chocolates etc for a Secret Santa present. I found it best to press your fabric after each step as this kept the fabric in place. I found the instructions for this bag at the Brother Sewing Site.

Have a lovely weekend.

Happy days.
Bev C

Your bag is lovely Bev. The fabric is so pretty. I've been making those fat quarter bags for a long time. They are great for all sorts of things.

I think I bought one of these bags and the pattern at my local quilt store a few years ago. Forgot I had it! Looks like a fun way to use 2 fat quarters, especially with a fast project.

Hi Bev ... that bag is just delightful -- thanks so much for sharing. Yes I can just see it made in christmas fabrics with some choccies or homemade treats inside or maybe a little fabric bundle for a sewing friend . . . the mind boggles :-)

I just made one these for my daughter for a mug bag. Easier than I expected and quicker too. Thank you for pointing me in the direction of the pattern.
