I had an epiphany.....These are the bags I use for my shows when people buy my stuff.....I had them imprinted for time and epiphany is why don't I put my designs on the blank side of the bags and it gives the customer a sample, plus saves me money buying testing fabric......the last pic is the imprinted side, the 3 designs here are Stuffed Dog, Penguin Winter and Merry Mouse......these will be up on my website tonight........

Brilliant idea from a brilliant woman!

Very clever idea! Your lucky clients will be thrilled. What we would call "Two flies in one fell swoop". I might steal your idea for a number of small gift bags - saves me adding to that ever growing 'one day I will turn you into a quilt'-pile.

If using for test stitch outs, I'm all for it. You have to try it on something. Where do you buy the bags? Kay

Yep! I got a daily deal at and I just got an order of yellow ones with a different logo.....will use up the green ones first though......I only use these bags for customers that buy $40 or more....

That's thinking out of the box and onto the bag! Brilliant.

This is the Disney Plus It Up concept that you can learn at very expensive seminars. Giving the extra and unexpected, to far exceed your competitors. I first learned about this at Anita Goodesign digitizing seminar. Just google "Disney plus it up" to read more.

So clever and I'm sure they make your customers very happy.

I was thinking I am sure there would be a market for the TEST designs on fabric. This way it would cover your costs of fabric.
I am assuming you give the carry bags away for free with a purchase?

basketkase by basketkase 05 Nov 2017

Yes, I do........I have tested the market at some of my shows and sell very few of the test samples.....I try to give people ideas what they can do with them......

pennyhal2 by pennyhal2 06 Nov 2017

I think people are so buys nowadays that they simply don't have time to utilize the test ones.
