Back in the sewing room.......finally

I've been wanting to make a zipper bag for quite some time but was a little leary because I really don't like to sew in zippers. But I was really surprised how easy it was. Much easier than putting one in the back of a dress. The patten for this was off the internet and it wasn't lined, just used iron on interfacing. Next time I'll line it for sure since I now know how easy it is now.

I call this a "free" quilt since everything I used was in my small stash. Several months ago I cut strips from fabrics and started trying to use them in baby quilts. This one is just 8 inch squares with a tiny white sashing. The pink polka dot flannel for the back was even left over from a larger quilt. Would you believe I even machine quilted it myself AND sewed the binding by machine too. Now it's ready for the next little baby girl born in our neighborhood.


Happy Quilting! Lynda

Well done with the sipper bag! I'm sure that's not the last one you've made ;). And the "free" quilt is lovely too. Good idea to get rid of those pieces of fabric, lying around taking up space!!!

I'm like you, I'm scared of zips. I keep telling myself I must have a go, but then I keep finding other things to do!

Your "free" quilt is so pretty.
