Today's Introduction: Little Jellies
This is one of our mini Fig Tree Threads patterns which if you haven't already tried… well, being of course a bit biased, I think you really should. They are our small, sewing or quilting projects that are usually fairly straightforward, simple to construct and don't use a lot of fabric. Oh and one of the most important parts is that they are a bargain at anywhere from $5.95 to $6.50 depending on release date. Bargain telling you!
Making these little "doo hickies" was definitely one of those cases of "can't stop and just make one", or two, or three or five. I think I have them in 6 different sizes, both pieced and out of one fabric. Made with fabrics that have been quilted by me, by my quilter and with pre-quilted fabrics. They are definitely really fun to make! Even better when you make a bunch at a time.
Once you have made a couple of these and realize how easy and fun it is to use up scraps to make these… well I think you might get a bit addicted. Like me. Just saying. You might. So don't blame me.
…the little pouch variation made from Fresh Cottons.
… the pouch and the long skinny made out of Breakfast at Tiffany's.
… the little box version [this might be my favorite shape in the lot…. at least for today it is] made from Fresh Cottons.
… just a little "jellies" ensemble.
… another pic of the pouch variety. No reason really to have another shot in here. I know I am torturing you all with so many pictures of the same little scrappy bags. But I really love them all so much. And they are making me happy. Right now at least. They say I am a little fickle though. I don't really know who "they" is by the way.

Fabrics used: These are all made with jelly roll leftovers. You know when you are done making a jelly roll quilt and you have a few strips that you didn't use & they just go in your ever growing scrap pile? Well, now use them for these instead. Cut your strips in half lengthwise so you get long skinny strips and you are well on your way!
Any leftovers are fine of course.
Talk to you soon.
