Ideas for Bingo Prizes




  • All these pattern links go to free designs or tutorials. 

  • Obviously, any Google search with images will turn up zillions of other ideas (these just happen to be links in my own personal archives). 

  • These links are offered in no particular order!

  • Don't forget that fabric selection makes a difference in final appearance. :) Don't overlook the idea of using holiday prints ... or 'masculine/girlie' prints ... or rainbow palettes ... or color wash arrangements ... or plain old scrappy good-ness. :)

  • Make prizes you would appreciate winning! If each guild member makes one item, we'll have a plethora of wonderful choices. :)

  • If you have other suggestions, please leave it in a comment!
