Hello, friends, and happy Monday! Today I’m super excited to finally be sharing a video Patchwork Project Bag Tutorial with you. We filmed this about a month ago and are so happy to be releasing it in time for some last-minute Christmas (or first project after the holiday) sewing. You’ll definitely want to watch the video for this one because I share some very helpful tips for putting this together. I’m also super happy that I now have two of these favorite bags to use! Keep reading for more details and materials required for these bags from my book A Quilting Life Home & Hearth: Quilts and More to Cozy Up Your Decor.
Patchwork Project Bag Tutorial
The pattern for the Patchwork Project Bag is included in my Home & Hearth: Quilts and More to Cozy Up Your Decor book (find more details on the projects included in the book here). This super versatile project bag finishes at 10 ½″ x 11 ½″ and features a see-through vinyl front, a quilted backing, carrying/hanging handle, and curved edges. This bag is perfect for carrying and storing small handwork projects, notions and tools, and even make-up, beauty, and toiletry items. It would also make a great coloring crayon and coloring pencil/marker case for any budding artists. There are lots of uses for this terrific bag. I’m using mine to carry English Paper Piecing projects for now.

Project Bag Video Tutorial
The Project Bag Video Tutorial walks you through each step of making this project bag from start to finish. I’ve got some extra helps for installing the zipper that aren’t included in the book. Watch the video above, or go here to watch on our YouTube channel.
I hope you enjoyed this Patchwork Project Bag Tutorial. I hope you’ll enjoy making several for yourself and for family and friends.
Happy quilting, and thanks so much for stopping by!
This is my first time watching one of your videos, and found it to be very helpful making a bag.
Thank you for doing this.
Have a wonderful day.
