Crown Royal Cloak

Added Oct 31, 2009

Seattle, Washing...






Commissioned by a friend who is a bartender and had been saving these Crown Royal bags for months. Once he heard I sewed, he asked me to make him a cloak for Halloween. The bags are made of flannel and I found the same material in black for the lining. First time doing a bagged lining! Turned out really well.

I sewed it all together in a way that, if he wanted, I could take it apart and make a quilt or a blanket out of it. It’s nice warm flannel, so would be perfect for it.

Material Notes

Crown Royal whiskey bags, flannel, polyester tie for neckline




Garment Type
Cotton, Flannel, Polyester

    Sew cool, I did not think anyone else made things out of these bags! Two years ago, I was commissioned to make a quilt for one of my bar patrons. I had never quilted before but it tuned out brilliantly. It took just under 250 bags. Needless to say, you did fantastic work!
