Another Zip Bag… With Scissors

I bought so much fabric last year that I can’t even remember what I have. My eyes light up when I see a piece I had forgotten all about. Like this burgundy “scissors” fabric. I knew I had the Moda scissors in white, black and bright orange.

So, when I saw the burgundy (Cranston Print Works) under layers of other fabric, you should have seen me jumping for joy. They would be my next zip bag.

This one is a little different than the first two. I added some embellishments.

  • Black polka dot grosgrain ribbon
  • Huge black/white/burgundy buttons
  • Ball and chains

I know, I know. I have said it many times. But I am loving this one too.

Can’t you just see a larger version of this. Maybe one with snaps instead of a zipper.

Do you like working with zippers? They are kind of pricey, aren’t they? Where do you get yours?

I am going to make two more little zip bags and then I will spend some time with my umbrella blocks. Need to decide on mini quilt, lap quilt or bed sized.
