One of the things I love most about the blogland and instagram is all of the amazingly talented people who love to share what they make. One item that kept popping up was the sew together bag. I was really intrigued, but totally scared of the idea of 4 (FOUR) zippers. But the bag was calling my name. I was up for the challenge.
One of the most enjoyable parts of making this bag is choosing fabric. You know I love happy scrappy, so I started pulling thought ALL of my Bonnie and Camille scraps. Bliss, Ruby, Vintage Modern, Marmalade, Happy Go Lucky and Scrumptious are all part of this bag.
The zippers had to be scrappy too!
The pattern design is very clever, but to be honest, without the sew along by The Quilt Barn, I don't think I would have been able to finish this. I am a total visual learner, and the pattern had very few diagrams and photos. The pattern is called the Sew Together Bag and you can purchase it on Craftsy.

I enjoyed making this from start to finish, and I am no longer afraid of zippers. I may or may not have made another bag, and have one more in the works....
