Yesterday I was shown how to sew a zipper into a little bag. I have one from Geniene and I love it to bits. The little "Spring Magic" Moda cupcake roll she sent me last year was begging to be used in something special and special is what the strips were used in.
Amy & Ben gave me some goodies in a pretty box for Christmas 2008 to help me out when I first started sewing. One of the items were some zippers. Never sewn a zipper before and so I was amazed how simple they are it pop into a bag.
Sides were already cut and sewn during the week, to make it easier on the day.
This is my bag, one of many I am sure I'll just go crazy making. Already I have ideas and designs floating or should I say spinning around in my head.
Inside I used yellow fabric with white shapes on the fabric for the lining. This bag will be used for carrying sewing goodies from my place to where ever I walk or travel.
Khris instructed me on how to put the sides, zipper and lining together. Then I made the second one by myself, just so I remembered the whole concept of putting it together.
This one is a stocking filler for Amy. She's a pink girl and I am sure she'll love the bag. The fabric its sitting on, Ben & Amy gave to me as a stocking filler last year for Christmas.
I used that as the liner for Amy's bag.
So glad I thought to make a second bag for me to make on my own. As I sewed it back to front on one side. LOL
Far too much laughing and talking at the table yesterday.
There is enough fabric left over to make another one.
I'm thinking of a blue zipper bag for Ben's mum, to go with her Christmas table runner.
You're only limited by your imagination.
