I Drank The Koolaid
And it's not the first time and probably won't be the last time.....I am sure many of you have seen the Sew Together bag all over blog land. At first it didn't strike me as something I HAD to make. The more I saw it the more I NEEDED it. Is it the wear down effect, or am I easily influenced?
I love all the compartments to hold all kinds of sewing things. This will be perfect for getaway/retreats where you need to bring a million things and they are all in one place.
The best part is picking out all the fabrics! The pattern calls for fat quarters but I was able to use a layer cake and get all my pieces cut. For the exterior I chose to piece mine, but if you went for one fabric you would have to use a fat quarter.
I love the polka dots on the sides, they make me happy! Those nasty edges will be covered up with binding.
The zippers on the inside were not hard to do at all. Just some patience and slow sewing got the job done.
All I have left to do is the big scary zipper on the outside, yes I am procrastinating......
I will do another post when it is finished and give you more details about a tutorial and some places to find tips if you are thinking of making one. I already have some other fabric combos in mind.....
