We're Zipped!

Project bags!  We had a sewing morning but this is the results of our labors! 
It is about 10" tall and 12" at the top and 9' at the base.
I've seen so many of these on different podcasts, I wanted to give it a shot myself. 
It was fun to construct them together!
Since we have several projects on the needles right now, this would come in handy! 
It didn't take us long to fill them up!
Before you can do any sewing, you have to do some 'figuring'! 
Then we drew the pattern pieces, cut out our fabric pieces and then we interfaced each of them.

What fun!


  1. Wow...I'm so impressed! I've watched lots of tutorials on making zippered project bags but the zipper part scares me to death. I think the last zipper I put in was in Home Ec class back in the 70's!

  2. Oh my gosh they came out amazing! The yarns you put in each one are perfect too! Someday I'll sew

  3. Great idea! And beautiful bags!

  4. A green bag and a blue(ish) bag... I don't have to ask whose is whose! ;) It's nice when a project is pretty and useful, too.
