Geometric Bliss Sew Together Bag
Wednesday, February 25, 2015
Happy Wednesday! I have a fun project finish to share today. I made another Sew Together Bag! This is my fourth one, (first, second, and third) and I think for now my last full size one. I would still like to try shrinking the pattern by 50% and making a mini one. Maybe one day!
Sew Together Bag Pattern by Sew Demented can be found here.
Since I made two with Dreamin' Vintage and one with Nordika, I felt like I should make one with Geometric Bliss. I used nine different prints from the collection for this bag. I also used four different zipper colors, which I hadn't done yet. They're all from Zip-it!
Every time I make this bag it gets easier, and I end up with a nicer bag. I was paying closer attention while making this one, so there was no seam ripping, woo! For this one I decided to quilt narrow straight lines on the bias. I will admit, it did stretch it a bit, but I still had plenty of room to trim it down. I like the finished look of it. I also split the exterior piece into two and pieced it since the tulip print is directional. I used Aurifil 50wt #2024 thread throughout!
I love how colorful these bags are when you use lots of different prints. I think the resulting bag is so bright and cheerful. This is a welcome change from our current weather. The winter here is so dark and dreary. I needed this pop of color!
I am pretty much obsessed with using the black and white polygons print with that fuschia purple. It is such an excellent combo. Still loving the black and white.
I hope you'll try this bag pattern if you haven't already. It's a fun challenge, and you get a great sense of accomplishment when it's finished. I use mine to take my sewing tools and notions to class or retreats. It's the perfect size!
