Sew Together Bag

The Sew Together bag is a fantastic little bag that can be used in so many ways.  You can use it to carry your sewing supplies; it will hold a rotary cutter, 8” scissors and lots of notions.  It is also a perfect bag for travel or just a day- to-day bag that will hold your phone, keys, money/credit cards and so much more!  It has 3 zippered pockets and four open pockets that are all held together with one long zipper that forms two side handles.  Finished measurements are 10” x 5” x 5”.   You will learn techniques and tips that make this bag fun, fast, easy to make…..and addictive!

Class level is intermediate.  You will need basic sewing skills; experience inserting zippers is helpful but we will walk you through it!

  • Fabrics

  • Bag Exterior:          1 fat quarter (18” x 22”)

  • Bag Lining:        ½ yard x width of fabric

  • Pocket Lining:        1/3 yard x width of fabric

  • Binding:        1 fat quarter (18” x 22”)

    • ½ yard of fusible lightweight interfacing

    • 1 – 18” x 22” piece of fusible fleece

  • Supplies (note: we will not be adding the optional pincushion or needle landing in class)

  • 1 – 18” zipper

  • 3 – 9” or longer zippers – I like to use a longer zipper and cut it down – it prevents accidentally sewing over the metal zipper stop!

    • Scissors, seam ripper, pins, fabric chalk or marker, thread and bobbins to match your fabrics.  

    • Narrow zipper foot - important

    • Optional:   Walking foot if you want to do free motion quilting on the bag exterior.  A regular foot is fine for basic quilting and looks great!
