More Project Bags Done!

I managed to finish 2 more vinyl windowed pouches on Friday before I had to pack for our Vancouver trip.

I started with 3 – 14.5” x 22” pieces of muslin to make my outside blocks.  I did two with strings and one in a wonky block format.  It was fun to just be impetuous and put them together in no unplanned way.

I had fun with the Tula Pink scraps and absolutely love the blue and brown scrappy strings together.

Once the outside pieces were finished, I sandwiched them with a wool/cotton batting and my inside fabric panel.  I then did some in the ditch quilting on the blocks with a neutral beige thread in both the top and the bobbin.

I put a binding strip on the top side of the vinyl and then added the vinyl to the sandwich using my clips.

I used a 2” binding and once it was pressed in half, used more clips to add it to my sandwich.  I sewed the binding to the inside of the pouch and trimmed my corners.  When the binding was flipped over to the outside I machine stitched it down, metering the corners.

I then then added a clear vinyl window pocket to put my project label info in.

I’m happy to get more projects finished.  This quarter should be a productive one!

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.
