SEWING | project bags and zipper pouches

 I've been busy making vinyl front project bags!

Find them in my shop

I found that these are super handy to keep your stitching projects organized while traveling or even at home.  I use them to keep projects in at home too so that I keep my threads and supplies all together.  It's so easy to grab a project to work on that way.

This turquoise, vinyl front, zipper project bag is X-large to hold an 11" Qsnap frame.  This works great for those large Sampler cross-stitch patterns or for EPP projects.  It's in the shop at a great price for this size bag... $58.00 plus tax and shipping.  I ship using USPS and always provide a tracking number and insurance and have had no problems with delays so far.

This bag is super special.... It has hand-stitched Dresdens on the back with big stitch hand-quilting.  I love for my project bags to feel like a vintage quilt when you pick them up.  I also put a tiny gingham ruffle around and topped it with a lemon stripe binding. 

The next bag I have in the shop is my country cottage goose.... 
I hand-appliqued the goose and some willow branches on the inside panel of the bag .... the vinyl front is super sturdy sparkling stars.  There's a 12" YKK zipper with a handmade tassel.  It's bound with a large country gingham in a strawberry color.  My absolute favorite part though is the flying geese across the bottom... they are super scrappy and hand-quilted with a perle cotton 8 thread in black.

Of course I didnt leave the back plain.... I put a sweet country cottage with some appliqued trees and bushes... even a HR kitty is resting by the front flowers.  I hand-quilted the back panel too with perle cotton and embroidered some flowers.

This little zipper pouch is perfect for carrying your EPP project about with you.  It's 8" x 8.5" and has a hand-quilted nine patch on the front with a gorgeous strawberry and rose pink stripe on the back.
The YKK zipper gives a bright pop of pink and a turquoise bauble.

I made this little zipper pouch as a gift.  I love the color of the blue birds and the delicate line drawn clouds... I used a turquoise YKK zipper with a red bauble and some tea-dyed eyelet for the bottom.  It's hand-quilted with a perle cotton 8 in pink.

Happy sewing!
