Project 25 Another Bag

I started my third Sew Together Bag last week.

I purchased this fabric from Hawthorne Threads  

Before I started to piece the bag together, I reviewed the step by step instructions from Amber over at Studioarblog.  She has so many great pictures and breaks the bag down into 5 days, so nothing feels overwhelming.

For those of you that aren’t trying this bag because of the zippers, take it from a beginner.  The zippers weren’t bad.  Amber’s step by step instructions make the a breeze.

Here are the links from my first bags, First Bag and Second Bag.

Putting the bag together wasn’t a problem.  The zippers went in with no problems too.

I ran into problems with the binding.  It was a pain.  I had skipped stitches all over the place.  I know that it is a lot of fabric to go through, but it was more than frustrating.

Good thing this was my third bag.  If it had been my first, it may also have been my last.

I tried new needle, re-threading, new thread, refill the bobbin, walking foot, no walking foot.  I think I tried it all.  Finally, I got it done.  A few minor skipped stitches, but it is done.

So don’t look too close, but here it is.

I think I’ll be putting this pattern away for awhile, but don’t fear the zippers.
