Happy June! It seems summer is officially in full gear once the calendar turns to June! This is a busy week here at my house and especially on the blog…I have a lot of things to share with you. First up is a tutorial for my Simple Zipper Bags!
Back in March I went to Fat Quarter Shop and filmed a video tutorial for these bags–I promise that even if you’ve never sewn a zipper, you’ll be able to make these fun bags!
I love that one Moda Mini Charm pack (Moda Candy) will make two bags; the directions in the video are for the larger bag, but by leaving off one row you can also make a smaller bag.
These bags are great for so many things…I’ve used them for travel, for sewing retreats (lots of sewing supplies fit), and they are also wonderful for keeping kids treasures in on car trips! They also make great gifts for family and friends. I’ve used Soft and Stable in my bags which makes them good for keeping phones and tablets safe while traveling, too.
The ladies at Fat Quarter Shop have made some really fun versions of the bag, and they’re also doing a sew along for this pattern. Some of the very talented people sewing along are listed below!
If you make the bag, please let me know…I’d love to see them! You can send me a photo or post on Instagram with the hashtag #simplezipperbag
(you can find me at @aquiltinglife on Instagram).
I’ll be back later today with our Popsicle quilt parade…thanks so much for stopping by!
