This guide is about making Crown Royal bag quilts. A collection of these soft bags can be made into an attractive quilt.
I made a pillow using Crown Royal bags. I couldn't find any cool patterns online that utilized the unique Crown Royal signature logo, so my mother and I designed our own pillow. I would love some feedback. Thanks.

I used two Crown Royal bags and took a side out and sewed the two together. I had to work a little to get the pulls to work, but once I did, it fits our little laptop just perfectly.

My son gave me quite a few Crown Royal whiskey felt bags, hoping that I would make a quilt for him. My crafting/quilting skills leave something to be desired, and I found a handy alternative use for the bags. They are the perfect size for rice warming bags! The felt helps the bag stay in place, and there is little to no skill required.
Fill the bag with a decent amount of rice, and sew the top shut. Toss into the microwave for 90 seconds and enjoy 20 minutes of soothing warmth wherever you need it! I made a few for family as Christmas presents, they were such a hit, I'm thinking about making some throughout the year to sell at the local craft fairs!

I would begin by sewing all the fabric together as much as the widths you need. And then add pieces as follows. Just position the design in the directions you'll be using for whatever part of the dress you'll be designing. Good Luck, Kathy~ Lake County, FL. You just need enough to cover your bodice areas, arms, waist, and so forth.
I cut up my Crown Royal bags and forgot to wash them first. Will it be okay to sew them together or should I wash them first?
Wash first. If you are using a backing or lining that material may have a different shrinkage rate
I would wash them first.
All depends on what you are going to use your Crown Royal bags for.
If it is to make a quilt then I would suggest to wash them first and then iron flat, this way each piece will be the same size and easily
Also it is possible the dye will run and if you are using other materiel with the bags then it will ruin what ever you are making.
Maybe use an overlock stitch around the edges to prevent fraying before washing?
I would suggest placing them in lingerie laundry bags and wash on gentle cycle with some white vinegar or even salt and rinse well.
Lay on flat surface and smooth out to dry - or press while still a little damp.
i really dont know how big this bag is, but i would suggest. using the wording on the front of the pillow...with the 2 gold bars on each front side... maybe make 4 gold tassels for the corners?
Thank you -that is a picture of the large Pouch- that answer will help-
I have seen Royal Crown pillows for sale on eBay but never tried making one - sounds like fun.
I would like to share a very good video site that I found on how to cut and sew these bags:
