Assembly Line Sewing

I have been sewing a lot, there just hasn't been a lot of blogging or finishing to go along with it.  Until now, this is a big project that I finished up ahead of schedule.  Here are 132 bags in all their glory.  I was going through my fabric and I have so many large scraps, I needed a big scrap reduction project.  So I made these bags-they have a purpose, I'm just not expounding quite yet.  Anyway, first I cut out all the rectangles, about 8 1/2 x 11.  Then I stitched them together on my serger.  Then serged around the top, ironed a hem, pinned on handles, and sewed the hem shut and handles on at the same time.  At the beginning I made myself a schedule so as to have them all completed by the end of November.  The ironing and finishing went super fast, so I got ahead of schedule and finished up-rare in these parts.  Now that I have these done, I can move on to other things-phew!
