Dreamin' Vintage Sew Together Bags
Happy Wednesday! Decompressing after a big event like Quilt Market can be tricky for me. I've just spent a large amount of time sewing like a crazy person all day every day, and then there is the event itself.  I come back home and usually feel like I don't want to look at my machine for weeks.  This time however, was different! I immediately got a new machine and I think that helped get me back to the machine a lot faster.  The first project I tackled was the Sew Together Bag. I purchased the pattern a few months ago, but didn't have time to make it until now.

Of course once I made one, I had to make another! The pink one now lives with my Mom, so I'll probably have to make another soon! ;)

The first bag I made, I used the Merry Berry colorway of Dreamin' Vintage. I paired it with straight line quilting using 50wt Aurifil thread, and purple zippers. I used an extra long zipper for this bag, which I will do from now on. I didn't realize how big it was until I made the second one, using the recommended zipper size.

For the second bag I used the Tickled Pink colorway from Dreamin' Vintage. I love how these prints all worked together in this bag! It's so cheerful, and I hope my Mom is able to get lots of use from it! I used 50wt Aurifil thread to quilt this one too.

I absolutely loved making these bags. They were fun, a good test of my new machine, and they turn out adorable! I cannot wait to make more of them.  I am able to take all of my tools and notions that I need when traveling, which is great. I feel so organized!

  2. Totally adorable, of course! What new machine did you get? I just splurged on a Janome 8900QCP and am still a bit intimidated by it.

  4. This looks so fun! The pattern calls for an 18" zipper. What size did you use? I think that is a great tip!

  8. This comment is not about the bags but just a short note to say that my box of your aurafil thread arrived today and it is lovely. Having the thread in the plastic storage box makes it special and the colors are beautiful. They are bright, but somehow muted--if that makes any sense. Sometimes bright colors have a sort of Acid Color look to them--but these are lovely.
    My shipment arrived promptly and was well-packed to arrive in good shape. Thank you. Sandra W.

  12. What length zip did you use on the longer one? I like the bigger handles, & it looks like it opens up wider as well.
