I was hoping that someone who has the Humbug Bag pattern handy could tell me what the fabric requirements are for the different sized bags.

I am planning on making these as Christmas gifts and going after work this afternoon to pick out fabric. Well of course my pattern is sitting at home 25 miles in the opposite direction of the fabric store!

I seem to remember that the largest bag could be made from a fat quarter but I am not 100% sure. If someone could let me know that would be so wonderful! Thank you!

Great minds think alike I just had this pattern out to start working on some Christmas bags ..

From the back of the pattern, the requirements are:

Fabric

Small: 7 1/2" x 10 1/2" (1/4 yd 44" fabric yields 4 bags)

Medium: 9 1/2" x 12 1/2" (3/8 yd 44" fabric yields 4 bags)

Large: 11 1/2" x 15 1/2" (3/8 yd 54" fabric yields 3 bags)

Notions

Small: 9" zipper, 11" ribbon

Medium: 12" zipper, 12" ribbon

Large: 14" zipper, 13" ribbon, webbing, or twill tape

HTH!

You've got me interested. I looked at the reviews of this bag and they are so cute. I would love to make some for gifts but don't know where to buy one. Can you help. Thanks so much. Peggy

Is this the same bag that was featured in Threads magazine a while ago? The pictures look similar.

Oh my gosh!!!

I am such a spaz! I forgot to click the track this thread button & didn’t even realize that I had gotten replies!!! I am sooooo sorry & thank you so much Patty for the info! I was not able to make it out to the fabric store that day, but we had not power at my office yesterday so I was able to get to the fabric store. I think that I got all the fabric that I need to make all the ones I will need for gifts. Now I just need a boat load of zippers!

Peggy I am sorry that I left you hanging! Here is were I got my pattern from Sew Thankful They are really neat little bags.

I also had a thought yesterday. I am going to try sewing some beaded trim on the top & bottom seam to give it a little fancier look. I haven't had a chance to try it yet but I think that it will be really cute. Unless my calculations are wrong this should take less than a yard of trim. So still an inexpensive little gift.

Patty,

I don't know if you know this or not but you can get at least 2 bags out of a fat quarter (18"x22"). I stopped JoAnn's yesterday & loaded up on fat quarters (on sale for $.99). I know that might not save any $ compared to buying yardage, but it is so much easier to pick up a fat quarter & match it up with another to make a sew of bags.

See my plan is to make everyone a set of 3 bags. The large & small from one print & the med from a coordinating print. Then I am going to use a matching solid for the lining. I wanted to make every set one of a kind. I have a huge family on my dad’s side & we are all getting together for the holiday this year & with that many (close to 20) I wanted everyone’s to be unique.

Just wanted to pass that bit of info on about the fat quarters incase that helps anyone use up a stash or in my case prevent adding too much to the stash that is all ready threatening to take over the house!

I just happened upon this thread and had never heard of a humbug bag. What a great idea for gifts. I've noted it for next year (or whatever may come up in the meantime).

I just started making these myself, and immediately realized I needed lots of zippers. I have some of that zipper on a tape where you cut off the length you need, but they are in boring beige and black. Since the zipper tape shows on the outside of the bag, I wanted to use that to add a dash of color. And they only come with 12 pulls so I would have to buy more and I didn't remember where I got the tape in the first place. Then I read somewhere of someone who had bought a bunch on ebay. Eureka! I just won an auction for 100 zippers in various sizes and colors for about $25 with postage. So if you're planning on making lots of these, consider ways to get lots of zippers really inexpensively.
