So, it seems that I am now of the age where the AARP is trying to recruit me as a member   Grin This summer, I went to a free AARP-sponsored shredding event, and they gave me a coffee thermos and a string bag. I gave the thermos to my stepdad, but kept the string bag. Since I don't often like to wear things or carry things with a logo, I wanted to cover the logo up.

First, I measured the area that I wanted to cover up, then I cut a piece of fabric, some batting, and a piece of backing fabric.



Next, I did some FMQ practice to quilt the panel (I definitely need more practice!), and cut some strips to make binding. I stitched the binding on (I just folded it over and machine stitched it) to make the completed panel.


Then, I pinned it to the bag, and stitched right around the edge to finish it off! Since everything was from my stash (I even pieced together 2 scraps of batting to make the piece I needed), this was a totally free project, and I really like how it looks Smiley Win-win!

I love this idea!  Might try with some of the bags I've acquired over the years.  I might even sew a zipper pouch to it instead of just a panel so it has an outer pocket.  Cheesy

Thanks, gozer!

That's a great idea! I wish I had thought of that! Next time I get a string bag, I'll try that out Smiley
