Dilly, SCQuilter, Cuppa, Embroidery Bags

Margaret in Spain creates some very lovely "Dilly Bags". Dilly Bags official definition is a "Traditional Australian Aboriginal String Bag" made from twisted bark fibers used to gather foods. But us stitching ladies have many uses for them. I use mine to place my many array of stitching items into for safe keeping. I told Margaret I had many lovely "Dilly Bags" and the best part is that they were all given to me by my "Very Dear Friends" from Australia and the top right one is from my friend in St. Saint Marie, Ontario, Canada. The one in the center is called a "Cuppa Bag" which you can place your tea cup into to carry with you to retreats, stitching meetings and on and on. vbg In my humble opinion I think only "Creative Australian Stitcher's" would think to do make a bag for their lovely tea cup!!! VBG In the bottom right corner I call this bag my Southern Cross Quilter's (SCQ) Bag because it is made from our official SCQuilters logo pattern and colors of blue and yellow. The top middle "Dilly Bag" is made from all lovely Australian fabrics. Everyone of these "Dilly Bags" are used and cherished.

What a lovely collection of bags and they must have great sentimental value, too, since they are from friends. How lucky to have so many people love you.

How wonderful, I had never heard of dilly bags before. Those are really nice. I know you will treasure them.

Dilly bags are great for so many things, I have one I use when travelling to keep jewellery in and my mother uses one for her medication when she travels, so not only for mugs, cups sewing bits and bobs they are multi usage,
