Fat Quarter Gang - The Jeni Gym Bag by I'm A GingerMonkey


It's Katy from I'm A GingerMonkey here with a new tutorial for the Fat Quarter Gang.

My project is really simple drawstring back pack. You can download a PDF to keep on your desktop and print whenever by clicking here.


Jeni's first line for Art Gallery Fabrics is absolutely perfect for so many uses. I love the retro feel of the prints, and the bright colours. I knew I just had to use it to make this project.

The Jeni bag is the perfect size for a child's backpack, but it's also a good size to pop your essentials in for a trip to the gym, or if you're not much of a gym bunny, use it as your everyday bag.

I've already got more planned - I'm thinking of using them as laundry bags for my kids' rooms, to use instead of wrapping gifts for birthdays, and for Christmas wrapping as well.


They're really simple to make, and don't take long at all. There's nothing complicated, just straight line sewing and some bashing of grommets for the ties.

If you make a Jeni bag, I'd love to see it. Upload to the Fat Quarter Gang flickr group
