One more Sew Together Bag

Here we are yet again! I've made so many of these, I could almost make them in my sleep!

I changed up my normal interfacing combination for this guy. The green fabric is a home dec weight. With the heavier fabric, I tried using less interfacing. I opted to only interface the outer bag cover with two layers of shapeflex. I didn't use any other interfacing. With the home dec fabric, this made for a really nice bag weight. The bag is soft, but holds it's shape well. In the past I have used CraftFuse which makes for a stiffer bag. The CraftFuse still seems to be the best option for quilting cotton.

I love the metal zipper. They are becoming my new favorite. I use 20" zippers on these bags rather than the 18" called for in the pattern. I think they are easier to work with, and I like that it allows the bag to open slightly larger. 

This bag has been gifted, and I'm once again done with these bags for a very long time...


  1. Love that fabric. It makes a really cute bag.

  2. This is awesome fabric for this bag. I love these bags. Have made more than a few myself. I keep saying "enough" but gosh they make such great easy gifts. ;)

  3. I Am Sure The Recipient Is Grateful For Your Labor Of Love!

  4. I don't think that I ever get tired of seeing these! I like the fabric on this one! :)

  5. Haha - until you make another one! I love this one. I always use zippers longer than called for in a pattern. I find it much easier to install them if I don't have to worry about the ends being precise.
