For Christmas, my mom gave me a class at my local quilt shop. The class was for these project bags. The pattern is for 4 different sizes, and the supplies make one of each size. (S, M, L, & XL) We did the large one in class, and I left with all but the binding on that one completed. I have now completed one of each size.
The front of the bags:
And the back of the bags:
The bags are quilted. This was my very first time doing a zipper, which was one of the reasons I wanted to do the class. I have now done 5! (Yes, I know, there are 4 bags. I made a mistake at one point and had to get a new zipper.) I had also never sewn with vinyl before. And I kept going back and forth between 3 different feet on my machine, so overall I felt very pleased in how I was adding new skills. I also had a lot of fun choosing fabrics to use up from my stash, though if I could do it over again I would not use that yellow binding on the small bag. I have decided to make more, as I have been doing a huge cleaning out and reorganizing of my craft space and I think it will help keep my half finished projects organized and contained. Three of these now have projects in them! I suspect the small one will be better for storing notions and such than projects, unless I pick up EPP.
