Like all good addictions, once you make one Sew Together bag, you want to make 2 or 3 or more. You realise how handy they are, for keeping stitching, knitting, or even makeup together! You start a list of all the awesome people in your life that you want to make one for, as the perfect gift.
I have been planning this one for the very special Sharon from Simple Things for a long time, but things kept on getting in the way of making it. One day I realised that things were always going to be getting in the way and it was time to just DO IT.
I made the outer from all different scraps of green fabric, quilted onto some scraps of batting. If I was to use this process again, I wouldn’t trim it to size until after it was quilted, as there was some width lost in the process.
Of course, the binding had to be in green as well. Can you guess what Sharon’s favourite colour is?
I used this gorgeous blue and green baroque style print for the interior, paired with three vintage zips and some cute patterned zip ends to add a little bit of pop.
No green scrap was left behind in the making of this awesome bag.
I was sorry to see it go in the end, but I know that Sharon loves it and that she will find it super useful for Hexagons on the road, so it is in great hands! Now who else can I make one for?
If you have yet to make one, I posted some great hints and tips with photos HERE.
