Dreamin' Vintage Sew Together Bags
Wednesday, June 18, 2014
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!
