well I promised a picture of binding....but its not on my quilt

had to finish a birthday present, once I learned how to make little zipper bag from here, I went crazy making all sizes and shapes, once you learn the basic technique you will love to make bags of all kinds, and you really don't need patterns. Sometimes I shop around online a famous makers to see whats out, they usually give the exact dimensions of their bag. Then I sketch it out with what I want and get to cutting. You can get a stash of zippers in a variety of colors from a couple of supply sellers on etsy, then its fun to go to your fabric closet and pull out scraps then get a funky zipper to match, its cheaper this way also to buy 10 at a time. So since i discovered binding my seams on Vera Jean I have been doing it ever since, on almost every project I make.I quilted free motion around the deer and put her name in for fun


  1. Wow! You sure are talented! I made a bag from one of those Amy Butler patterns and it was huge! It is so hard to sew over all those thick layers of fabric and backing.

    Nice job.

  2. which bag did you make? I have made a few of hers also and they are not always what you think. I have learned with her that you need to make a simple sample with muslin first then figure out where you want to cut it back.

  3. Super cute! Love the name. Perfect use of that fabric.
