Embellished reusable bag swap

I actually came up with the idea for this swap! The challenge is to take a ready-made bag (I bought this one at Joann's for $1) and embellish it in any way you like. My partner's favorite colors are purple and green, so I used fabrics in those colors to make quilt blocks to cover the Joann's logo on each side.

Log cabin block with stacked buttons at the block center:

Irish chain block with a string of beads at the center (I should have used a darker purple fabric for better contrast in this block):And a couple of note cards to send along with the bag, just for fun. These are soooo easy to make, and they're a great way to use up little scraps of fabric.
