Another Zip Bag… With Scissors


Image Hosting by PictureTrail.com

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.

    I love your bag :) I buy my zippers from zipit on etsy. The last batch I bought ended up being about 34 cents a piece with shipping :) http://www.etsy.com/shop/zipit

    I’ve NEVER sewn a zipper into anything but for a bag that cute I’ll have to give them a try!

    The first one was cute, but I LOVE this one! This would make a great gift to someone who does hair I think.

      It would!!

      • Deb says:

        I think I am going to try to make one of these sometime in the next week or so. :)

      • don_mae says:

        You could make a couple with your dress fabrics. That would be cute.

        (I forgot to say, thank you) :D

        I was thinking of using some of the “posh” pieces I have that I bought from somewhere that aren’t big enough on their own for anything… I’ve got quite a bit of different satiny type fabrics in various earthy tones.

    Thank you, everyone. Love reading your comments!!

    I will have another little zippered bag to show you tomorrow. I have been experimenting with zipper insertion and have a look I am finally happy with.
