I was recently in an online swap run through Instagram, this swap's focus is on Bonnie and Camille fabric. I made a mini quilt and filed the rest of the package with some cute stuff like stationary, taffy from the east coast of North Carolina and some chocolate of course. So what better to put all those goodies in than a bag?
This is called What's in Your Bag. I have made a few of these a couple years back and I remembered I really enjoyed them. They come together easily, take very few supplies and are a quick project for some Saturday afternoon sewing!
Don't worry, the directions are easy to understand, the vinyl is an easy technique so you don't fight with the feet on your sewing machine and the installation of the zipper is a breeze.
The zipper installation even has those cute little tabs, makes it looks so professional don't you think?
I quilted the back of the bag with straight grids, it was just enough quilting to give it some stability to stand on its own.
I really do love how easy these are to make. I also don't think I mentioned you can cut out two at the same time! Two fat quarters makes two bags! So I made one for the swap I was in and one for my secret sewing sister for the Charlotte Modern Quilt Guild.
We have plenty of fat quarters to choose from, if you need any help I'm happy offer advice on which two I would put together! In fact, if you like the fabric I used, you can buy the What's in Your Bag kit; it includes the pattern, fat quarters, zippers, fusible fleece and vinyl for two bags.
