Sew Together Bag

Ok... I usually am behind the times as far as new, inovative
things go.  It takes me a while to get up to speed with the
latest and greatest, and by the time I buy it or make it
or whatever, it isn't the latest and greatest any more.

WHY did I wait so long to make one of these bags??

I've had the pattern for probably two years.
I have seen so many completed bags on the web,
but I hadn't pulled my fabric and made one....

...until yesterday.
A friend is having a big birthday and I decided to make
her a "Sew Together" bag.

She's a huge beach person and I had the perfect fabric!

The cutting, fusing and sewing began.
I quilted a piece of fabric for the outside and trimmed it to size.

I found a blog with a step by step tutorial and
breezed right through the construction.
(ok... my seam ripper was used a few times!)

It's going to be fun to find little treasures to put in all
of these pockets for my friend!

I learned some things making this first one,
so the next one should be easier.
Yes... I'm already planning the next one (or two or twelve!)

Please visit Patchwork Times to see what others are creating.

Happy Quilting!

Congratulations on a job well done. I have been wanting to make one for a long time. I've even bought the zippers!

I love it! The fabric choices are perfect. I have the pattern and have not made mine yet either. Guess I need to dive into it.

Me too! I've had my pattern for ages, keep looking at it and not sewing it up. Now I want to pull it out and get busy. She is going to love it.

Love that bag! Looks a lot like the "Bionic Gear Bag" on Craftsy. My friends and I have been making that one. Love the fabrics you chose!

Great bag and great fabric choices! I think it will be a hit with your beach lovin' friend! I made my first one last year for my SIL and am very surprised I haven't made another one yet!! Will have to remedy that soon!!

Cindy Quilts said...

Love your fabric choices for the bag. I waited a while before making one too. I love mine!

What an excellent job! I'm really impressed with the matching zippers and the choice of fabrics was so put together. What a lucky friend...not only for the bag but to have you for a friend.

What a great bag! I've only sewn a few zippers, ever.
