Sew & Sew Sew Together Bag

Hi Everyone! I know today was supposed to be the next step of the Weekender Bag sew along, but I'm going to be honest and say I am still in the planning stages!  Between work, pool weather and watching the Cleveland Cavs finals (WE WON!!), I haven't done much with my bag. Sorry. But I wanted to share something that I did sew!!

Have you seen the new cute adorable fabric from Chloe's Closet for Moda called Sew & Sew? The colors are just so fresh and summery and lovely, and I knew right away that I wanted to make a sew together bag with cute patchwork print.

This is my first time making a non-patchwork exterior for a bag, and it took almost half the time to put together. Look at that cute tape measure print!! So fun as a binding!

I ordered 5 different half yards, and have enough fabric to make a few more bags. A tote bag might be in my near future.

I promise to get started on my Weekender Bag, and I will post on Wednesday with the cutting and sewing the panels part of our sew along! I think Chrissy is way ahead of me :)


  1. Love this fabric! The words, the measuring tape look - perfect!

  3. I am going to have to get some of this fabric! It is lovely and I like what you did with it and I like the idea of a bigger bag. Wish it was out now!

  4. OMG I just went to look and it is out now! Yippy Skippy!

  5. Oh my goodness this is too cute!! Your STBs are always perfect but I am really loving the feeling of this one - and now I need to go order some of that cute fabric NOW ;)

  6. I will be making the weekender bag with the group and have a question. I want to use soft and stable instead of all of the peltex and interfacing. My question is whether that can be used in all places calling for the interfacing including the top zipper section? Please provide some advice. Thanks!

  7. I am just wondering if there is a pattern available for the bag you have posted above with all the separate zipper compartments...
    Thanks, Cheryl
