This guide is about making Crown Royal bag quilts. A collection of these soft bags can be made into an attractive quilt.
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?
I would suggest placing them in lingerie laundry bags and wash on gentle cycle with some white vinegar or even salt and rinse well.
I really don't 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?
How do I re-thread a Crown Royal bag with the yellow string at the top?
I have this tool called Re-Stringit and its great. www.amazon.com/
The Re-Stringit is a great tool but it is kinda expensive ($29.95) on Amazon but if you have a lot to do I feel sure it would be worth that price.
As cybergrannie suggested, a safety pin will do the trick. If you have a large one - not too big to fit inside the top of the bag, but large enough you can actually feel and manipulate it - you can do without the paperclip.
That is expensive! I paid nowhere near that price.
