Have you heard about this fantastic thing called the Sew Together Bag? This bag has been on my to-do list for months now, and when I saw that Heather from The Quilt Barn was doing a sewalong I knew this would be just the kick in the pants that I needed!
So I joined in, and bought my pattern and zippers that afternoon.
Then came the hard part – deciding which fabrics to use for the main bag and the linings. Let’s just say that I made a big mess of my closet as I dug around to find the fabrics to use.
So this is what I decided on – I think.
And this afternoon I started on Day 1 of the sewalong. I’m a few days behind, but it’s one of those things that you can join at any time. That means that YOU can join in today and make yourself one of these awesome Sew Together Bags. You know you want to.
You can get the pattern here. I recommend buying your zippers from Zipit on Etsy. Great prices, fast shipping and an amazing selection of colors and sizes.
Being the overly practical girl that I am, I just chose very neutral zippers. Boring ol’ white, gray and vanilla. But check out this card – these are the gorgeous colors of zippers that Zipit offers. Now I’m kicking myself for not choosing something more fun like “Monster Snot Green” or “Mango Smoothie”.
