July OMG

It is late in the month and I hadn’t even started my OMG for July.  So this morning I got started.  Decided on a NoodeHead – Wide Open Zipper Bag

This appeared to be such an easy pattern and my sister had bought some cute fabric, wanting a few bags.  Off I go to do my bags.

She had bought the material when we were down in Shipshewanna, IN last month.  It is very cute and they vendor had added the vinyl to the fabric.



Here is my bag.  It was a bit bulky in the lining, since I lined it with vinyl fabric too.  Too much bulk for the inside seams, along with the interfacing.  Maybe I should have tried without the interfacing.

I am modifying my July OMG from 3 bags to 1.  I need to decide if I want to use the remaining vinyl fabric for bags or thread catchers or something else.

    I love the fabrics and good for you for making a pouch with a zipper. Maybe if you make more, it’ll inspire me to make some too.

    I like the fabric colors of the bag. I’m not sure i’d enjoy using vinyl fabric for the bag either. However, I have no idea what else you should use the fabric for!

    The fabric you used for this bag is terrific. Can’t wait to get back to sewing. Maybe a little while in Maine. I have fallen behind with my projects due to a downsizing move that went on an accelarated schedule. All good, but hard to sew!
