scrap duffle bags for mission work

When the church group goes on Mission trips they purpose their 'checked luggage' for items that will be used by the local church that they are going to.  I wanted to figure out how to re-cycle donated fabrics that didn't make it to the 'quilting' stash into bags that could be useful.

Marci just let me know that these first two arrived and worked how we hoped they would.  Hard to believe that each bag is holding about 50 lbs of items.  This set has 30 baby size quilts and a lot of school supplies.  The nice thing is the bags can be left at their destination for use later.

Trips are scheduled for 3 or 4 a year, looks like I am going to get to bust a bunch of  material in 2016!
