|Block 5 - Friendship Star|
A few weeks ago I had picked up the Bridget's Bagettes kit from Heirloom Creations. The kit had enough included to make 3 bags, one in each size. You probably could have made a few of the same size if you wanted but I thought I had better just try them all for the first time. These bags are just awesome and Terri is able to prove once again that zippers are not scary! I had thought that working with vinyl would be difficult but with a walking foot and some tissue paper it ended up not being a deal at all.
I also made myself a make-up bag this week using one of Atkinson Designs older patterns. The Cash and Carry pattern was the first time that I learned to put in a zipper. I had taken a class on it from Heirloom quite a long time ago but the directions made much more sense this time around :) The dimensions of the pattern were obviously made for a wallet or classes case of somesorts. I needed a larger bag so i just adjusted the measurements as I saw fit. I got a couple of fat quarters of fabric and the zipper from Heirloom and had this cute little bag a few hours later.
This week will be busy with both guild and Sewtopia meetings but I am working on a few other projects that I hope to post about soon!
Have a great week!
