Monday Morning Star Count - Gift Bags and Week 3

I decided to use some of the orphan hexies I had to make some unlined gift bags. They could be regifted or repurposed by the recipients.  The bag fabric is kimono fabric.

I am reporting the high temperature each day.  My Year Four temperature/color (Fahrenheit) scheme remains the same: 

100 + Brown

80-89 Orange 

70-79 Yellow  

60-69 Green  

50-59 Blue

Great idea to use up those orphans and the bags look so nice. I'm using up orphan quilt blocks for some of the masks I'm making.

What a clever idea for the bags to adopt those orphans. They look good together. I can spy some kimono silk I have seen before!!!
