Yesterday I coached Sue and Shelley through the process for making the zipped project bags with the vinyl window.
They had saved time by pre-cutting the pieces and ironing the interfacing onto the back of the outer fabric.
This pattern was one I had deconstructed from a bag Jeanette had been given and I'm not confident that my written instructions are adequate so being there to coach them through worked well.
After a minimum of muss and fuss, they both stitched their first bags.
Sue's . . .
Fray check or clear nail polish on the clipped ends prevents the ribbon from unraveling.
Sue had a remnant of an adorable fabric which she used for the second one.
Sue's craft room is fabulous. Like most crafters, she does a variety of crafts - card making, quilting, stitching, knitting, sewing, etc.
