Ah, I didn't know that! I remember I made some fold-up bags for a retreat gift one year.  They ended up as a little pillow folded up on itself and tucked in, kind of like those quillow quilts that were popular then.I

Thanks for the information,

When I saw you post I knew it had to be a schlep bag. We made them at a VOS retreat many years ago. I was sitting across from Lindale Hoo. She decided to make a teeny tiny version for Zelda the stuffed zebra that was sent by a forum member who could not attend in person. I think Linda''s bag was about 2-3 inches tall....goes to show you can make them any size.

I'm glad you asked about this.  I have a lot of orphan blocks that I think will be put to good use as schlep bags.  I also need some bags as I don't have very many.

Thanks for the link whoever posted it!

Judy, thank you for sharing the link.  I was just thinking about making some shopping bags and this pattern will be great as well as using up some stash!
