A few weeks ago I made myself a vinyl zippy bag. It was very large 18 by 18 or about that size. I love it but also knew I wanted a couple smaller ones.
I ordered this book by Svetlana Sotak and happened on to a really great bag pattern that I decided was the perfect plan for my smaller bags.
Since my original large bag pattern was a bit cumbersome I liked this new pattern much better.
Dealing with the vinyl was really easy. I never had to sew directly on the vinyl.
Very quickly the bag was ready to finish the handwork on the binding.
So much fun and so easy I had both bags done in an afternoon. I made the second bag a bit larger and paid a bit more attention to the strips on the zipper. My first blue print bag the stitches were not evenly placed due to my not paying attention to the sewing machine needle placement. A bit of an OCD moment, which I corrected on the second bag.
And an old UFO finished this week as well. This wall hanging has been hanging around for ages. I added more quilting on the appliqués and meandered the borders this past week and have since added the binding and sleeve to hang it.
