I have a small group of girlfriends from high school (that was a long time ago, 1974) and we try to get together at least once a year. It was time for a get together and I always like to take a little something to share, so it was time to make a few more Sew Together Bags. Only five of us will be getting together this time and we are headed to one of the girls place in Northern Michigan sitting on a great lake (not one of the GREAT Lakes, but still a great lake).
Thankfully I have some zippers in my stash from Zipit Zippers. And I my first two bags made are just hanging around the house waiting for a home. I only need to make two more bags. Just need to find some fabric that goes with my zippers.
Here is the fabric I ended up using.
Now that I have made a few bags, it doesn’t take to long to get one finished. I have looked many places for tips on making these bags. The printed directions are directions and for someone like me (sometimes pattern reading challenged) pictures help. The Quiilt Barn- Sew Together Bag Sew Along is the best. Her pictures and breakdown of each step makes this bag easy.
Here are the finished bags.
I still need to work on my binding sewing by machine.
Here are the four bags that made the trip.
I also brought each a book, The Girls from Ames, it is about a group of girls from Ames and their friendship over 40 years.
We had a great weekend.
