Let's say the talis bag is worn out and needs to be replaced. The tefillin bag is fine. Do both need to be replaced at the same time so they match? (Let's say you don't want the same style again.)

it's a machlokes rishonim. :p
"Spiritual wants and instincts are as various in the human family as are physical appetites, complexions, and features, and a man is only at his best, morally, when he is equipped with the religious garment whose color and shape and size most nicely accommodate themselves to the spiritual complexion, angularities, and stature of the individual who wears it."

"The despotism of heaven is the one absolutely perfect government. An earthly despotism would be the absolutely perfect earthly government, if the conditions were the same; namely, the despot the perfectest individual of the human race, and his lease of life perpetual. But as a perishable perfect man must die, and leave his despotism in the hands of an imperfect successor, an earthly despotism is not merely a bad form of government, it is the worst form that is possible."

-Mark Twain

I really cant see why it would matter at all if the bags dont match. More an aesthetic issue, I would say. Would it bother you if they were not alike?

I made both for my husband. While they are both cross stitch, they are two totally different designs.

Funny enough,it is the tefillin bag that has 2 small ducks in the bottom corner!

Honestly, the tefillin bag was the first big needle work project I ever did- if I look back at it I am NOT particularly proud of my "floral" motif. I have offered a number of times to do another one for him, but he keeps saying no. I made it when we were dating. The tallit bag I still love. The math in getting it even took forever!

Both are backed with double soft good quality velvet and lined in satin. A friend sewed the bags for me with the cross stitch on the front. At other times I have also done a tefillin bag with a set of tefillin on it as a bar mitzvah gift for someone, and a tallit bag with a modern looking Jerusalem skyliny for my FIL.

doesn't a tefillin bag have to go in shaimos?

Does it?
The inside lining of the tallis bag was completely ripped and had to be removed, and now it's just sitting on the dresser until I figure out what to do with it.

I dunno. But it's hechsher kedushah as opposed to a tallit bag that is hechsher mitzvah.

what's the distinction?

How many other items are on the dressed until you figure out what to do with them? Right now, I cleared off the pileS yesterday and condensced into one pile.
