“Sew TOGETHER Bag” is this awesome bag from “Sew Demented” that anyone can sew up in a day for first time using the pattern…Well it took me 5 hours for this one. Really had to think what it is telling me to do next in the pattern…and not rush into sewing sections together.
So I took my time and looked everything over twice before I cut or sewn the sections together..
and It worked out pretty amazing I think…This bag is perfect for Knitting or sewing notions. I’ll make a view more for sure…just need more zippers and some fabric…but guess what? SMILES……I am working Friday and Saturday so I have that alllll……right in front of me alllll day…smiles. Ok If you like I can show you too where we have the pattern and help you with selections for the fabric ….looking forward to see you then. Really love this Sew together bag…..
I had to replace a zipper on my hubby’s winter coat. I guess I could have taken it to the local dry cleaning place that will replace zippers at $30+ ….nonono I have a good sewing machine and I am sure I can do this too.
So I cut the top end of zipper off. Then took the piece I cut off reversed the teeth into the ends of the zipper so they now are interlocked with each other. As I needed a stopper at the top so the zipper-pully doesn’t come off zipper end.
I had a wood burning iron around the house from my kids that thy don’t use anymore. Took this and melted the two teeth that now are interlocked together. Voila I have a stopper on each side now…Sooo easy and perfect. Just needed to cut off the fabric part now and kind of melt the zipper fabric that has been cut so it would not fray
but this time I followed the instructions!!! Have a look “River Stones”
Though my “WOF” (width of fabric) was not 45″ like I think it should be for the instructions mine was a standard 42″ so I seem to not have enough of some fabric length as I needed to make a 8 1/2″ block. So good thing I had lots of fabric to sew up another strip.
Oh don’t use a directional fabric if the direction of some strips run in a different direction does bother You….I love the fun part of this though…
This could be the pillow see last pic in this pic bundle
one side that woul dbe folded over for the pillow
Pillow!!! with batting and backing too…kind of questioning this part but will find out why soon…
I now have one table runner and possibly a pillow or I’ll make it into a second table runner…just so I have another one…..LOL :-)))) Or I can give it as a Gift to someone I care about. ;-) That sound good to me too!
All I have to do is quilt the edges and some stitch in the ditch I think but will know better by tomorrow…The first Table runner I quilted much more, and I truly enjoy that part of quilting.
Happy sewing to you too… perhaps I will see you at my work place getting fabric just for this kind of quilting…
