Well done Toogie. Ashley will be pleased with them I am sure. There will be lots of toys and stuff for the kids to pull out on Christmas morning. My 2 eldest Grand Children had Santa Sacks and I had to go visit to watch them un-load them. Things used to be flying everywhere with lots of squeals and laughter. Hugs
I don’t get to see them when they get up Christmas morning because I’m busy getting lunch ready for all of them. They do usually call and tell me Santa came & what he left them.
Kids make Christmas fun.I'm glad you have nice memories.
One way I put the boxes made it look like a chair-lol- picture especially for pennyhal2- could really fool them😉😂🤣
How did you make the sack please .I keep looking at it lol
I didn't measure anything. I used the whole curtain. It had 3 panels or width of fabric, sewn together. It had a wide hem at the bottom and grommets at the top. I kept the top as is and so I cut it above the hem. Sewed the length of the panels together forming a tube. I wanted a full width panel for my front so I laid my huge tube so I would have equal distances, for the seams, near the sides. Then I sew the bottom straight across, right sides together, where I had cut the hem off. I then pressed flat at the bottom and sides, not the whole big bag. I wanted a pressed line, since I had no real side seam, to match to my bottom seam to make my corners. Make corners the usual way by matching & pinning the bottom seam to the side. Next I measured down 9 inches from the point, then stitched 18 inches across forming my miter or boxed corners. Do other corner and That is is!
"I wanted a full width panel for my front so I laid my huge tube so I would have equal distances, for the seams, near the sides."
This means there were only 3 panels or width of fabrics sewn together. So no matter how I put my tube, right sides together, I wouldn't have sides seams. Front is one width, plus guessing maybe 8 or 9 inches of 2nd and 3rd panels at sides. The back has a seam down the center.
Using this fabric is very forgiving as the seams don't show much. I don't know if it's because of the color or the texture of the fabric. The fabric is thicker than unbleached muslin but not as thick as a painter's drop cloth. I'm not sure the fabric content.
Thanks Very Much :):)hugsxx
Wow that could take a lot of green backs to fill this sack lol Awesome job toogie:):)
Now Carolyn we all know big things ($$$ jewelry) come in small packages, so it may be opposite for small things ($ toy) to come in big packages. I don't know what they are getting but Gus will be happy with anything.
That's great :):)
What a great idea! Do you have a place to "hide" them so the kids won't see them before Christmas morning? The children are going to absolutely love getting their bag!
Your post makes me think about all the boxes I get from Amazon...Just wrapping up empty boxes and stacking them would make a room decoration!
Oh, this is not for me, but for my daughter's house. She will put the Santa gifts inside, Christmas eve night when Santa comes. Until then, everything stays hidden in the attic.
Good job! I see now - your daughter just wanted one very large sack!! Love the tags! Hugs, Laura
Yes! Like Santa carries on his back.
Toogie as ever great work
Thank you, it will serve the purpose and look a whole lot different after Ashley decorates it. I just hope she takes a photo & sends to me!
One step closer to Christmas. Are you pacing yourself and not wearing out?
Yes, I’m good, thank you. I wanted to give the girls quilts this year but not to be, although I have several made I don’t have Ashley’s King quilted, because haven’t been to shop for backing. I hate to give some of the girls and not all. I don’t know, may change my mind. I’d like to have given Taylor (Caleb’s wife) the Cottage Joy - Double Slice but Ashley said it would be good for Avery. I don’t think Avery needs a queen size but it would look good on her tall bed.
Perfect, Toogle...the will love them!
Something special this year, always like to make those memorable moments but not my idea, Ashley’s. Thanks!
Great job to Santa's helper on these sacks. It is a great idea to have made 2 for each just in case too. I know Mom, kids and santa will be pleased with the sacks and with the tags.
It will be a fun Christmas morning but then having little ones always makes it fun. Just glad I didn’t have to make Avery & Mason one! At their ages, and I can hardly believe almost 15 (dec) & 17 (Jan), Santa doesn’t pass for them anymore.
Well done they are a good size.
She wanted Big! I have one big box Averys diapers came in and several smaller boxes inside just to see how it would look. Some of kids toys are hard for me to wrap because the box packaging doesn’t cover the front of the toy. Toy companies leave it open for kids to touch & see. Makes it hard for people to wrap.
Lovely, what about one for yourself. "G"
No fabric left!😳😂🤣
Well good for you on finishing it. It sure will hold a lot of goodies, love Chris
It’s big enough for Santa to throw over his shoulder onto his back!-lol- when she said use all the fabric to keep them big, I listened. I did box the corners but you can’t tell except it sits well.
