Finish It Friday: The Sew Together Bag


Last month at my quilting retreat at Gruber's, three of us made the Sew Together Bag by Sew Demented. I had not come prepared to make this, but since I knew it was kind of tricky, I thought making it together with friends would be much easier.

So I walked across the parking lot from the retreat center to the quilt store and bought a fat quarter of each colorway of my favorite Kaffe Fassett fabric, Guinea Flower, along with multiple zippers.
 

I took lots of pictures during the process because already I have fabric combinations galore floating around in my head. The extra pictures will make it easier when I'm making another one solo.
 
 
 
 
 
Here are all three bags getting acquainted. I  know they wish they lived closer together, just like the friends who made them.
Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts and TGIFF.

  3. Your bag looks great in Kaffe fabrics, and the ones from your friends are beautiful, too. Just this week I made one, too, and blogged about it today. :-)

  11. Your Sew Together Bag turned out so beautiful! It was fun to make these together, wasn't it! I read through the pattern before our retreat, and I'm so glad I decided to wait until I had access to others to get help. I looooove how mine turned out too!

  17. The bags look lovely. I would very much love to have one of these, but I'm a bit intimidated. Perhaps, I should just put on my big girl pants.

  18. So terrific! (sew? terrific) Okay, it's on my list. Okay, I'm going to pull fabrics right now. Okay I first have to read another of your posts (I couldn't get to your blog the last couple of days and now I'm having lotsa fun!).

    Loved Afton's comment (above). I feel the same way.
