I want to make some zippy bags.
They just give me a quick rush, and you get to see poetry in motion as the fabrics that you love together can live together, without waiting for the next decade to pass so that they can be turned into an actual quilt. Because that's how long it takes, around these here parts.
And I've always wanted to neaten up my zipper ends, so Flossie Teacakes, Come On Down!
I was going to make a whole stack of these babies, we all know things speed up when you get into the rhythm.
Ha ha. This here is what I now call my Mountain' o' Dreams (you'll see why in a minute), a stack of pre-measured, pre-matched-with-zippers, pre-ready-to-ROLL, fabric.
And in case you wondered about roomy workshops and airy studios, here's my desk in action. We call it cozy.
I made my zippy bag, according to the directions, and I do like me those zipper ends!
Then I got to sewing it all up. See how nicely I used that Height Thingamabob so I could more easily glide over the tricky zipper bit? Ha ha again!
A broken needle.
I took a moment to recover from my loss.
Replaced the needle.
Got the cameras rolling for Sew The Zipper Bag Together - Take 2! Woo-hoo!
Can you believe it? I couldn't.
Broken needle number 2.
But I persevered in the face of adversity. I showed that sewing machine who's boss. (In case you were wondering, I turned the hand-crank manually as I stitched over the zipper.)
Check out the pretty bag!
Check out the pretty, pretty zipper end!
Thank you, Flossie Teacakes!
PS I have every intention making a whole stack of these from my Mountain'. But first, I have to figure out a solution to the Zipper Conundrum. If you have any answers, just let me know!
