I changed gears a bit this week.
You might remember that I have been
doing a little bit of cross stitching.
By following along on several flosstubes
found on YouTube you begin to realize how
obsessed X-stitchers are with their project bags.
One bag for each current project, a bag for
each WIP, seasonal bags, cute bags, small bags
and big bags.
So not wanting to feel left behind out, I have
spent the week making
vinyl project bags.
13" wide x 11" high
I found an excellent tutorial on
Her directions are easy to follow,
the zipper is quick and painless,
the backing becomes the front binding,
and they are super fun to make.
I like to order my zippers from Zip It
which you can find on Etsy. It's a time saver and
an affordable way to get a great assortment of colors
I did change the size of the bag from
Jenn's directions. I made it an inch wider
(you would have to change the measurements
of some of the other fabric pieces).
Let me know if you're interested.
I also used a 16" zipper.
Fabric, inside and outsider pieces, vinyl, fusible interfacing, zipper
These vinyl front project bags are additive like M&M's.
I have made about 20!
You'll find these perfect for any stitching project,
not limited to x-stitching.
Here's something else I did.
I had a vintage tea towel.
So I'd like to share my current obsession with
3 of you. Just leave a comment on this post
and you're email if you are a no reply blogger.
I'm sorry to all my friends outside of the US, but due
to current mailing hassles, I have to make this for
the US only, but now that you have a
tutorial, you all can make lots of these.
Springtime print (Di Ford fabric), Patriotic, Subtle Halloween
I'll randomly pick, 1, 2, and 3
Drawing closes February 18th.
Thanks as always for stopping by and taking the time
to comment on my posts. It's nice knowing
there are is a community of stitchers who
encourage and inspire each other.
Until Next Time-
