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.

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. :-)

I wonder how many of these have been made? And each one as pretty as the next!

How was it to make? I like it, but it looks like it could be a bear. Love your fabric choices!

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!

Wow, your bags really turned out nicely! I am currently taking a class for mine. I am so glad I took a class. Not sure how I would have done otherwise!

I LOVE your bag. How could I not since it's full of Kaffe. Now I want to make one too.

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.

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.

It is a good site post without fail. Not too many people would actually, the way you just did. I am impressed that there is so much information about this subject that has been uncovered and you’ve defeated yourself this time, with so much quality. Good Works! best wheeled backpack for school
