More Sew Together Bags

My mom, aunt and I got to sew together recently and we each made a Sew Together Bag. The pattern is from Sew Demented and the bags are amazing. I made my first one and immediately began pulling fabrics for a second. Now, I have a third planned. They’re totally addicting.

I mentioned in my post about the first one I made that the pattern is good, but isn’t perfect. My mom and aunt were skeptical of being able to follow the instructions themselves. They are both amazing quilters and sewists that I was sure they’d be able to do it, but it always makes it easier to have somebody there who has done it before. My friend, Jaime, was there when I made my first one and I’m glad she was.

So without further ado…

That’s my bag.

That’s mom’s. Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture of Aunt Cathy’s because she started hers later in the day and couldn’t quite get it finished. She was pretty close though.

There’s another shot of mine. I love the triangles. I pulled that fabric from my stash first and built around it.

That’s the inside of mine. I used solids (and one tone on tone) for the pockets and then chevron fabrics for linings and side panels.

Here’s the inside of Mom’s. I love the cute novelty print. Her pockets are all lined with that elegant cream lace-looking fabric.

This time I hand sewed the side binding, but couldn’t hand sew the top/zipper binding because of the zipper. I’m more pleased with how it turned out though. Mom and Aunt Cathy did the same.

Of course, now everybody we were sewing with wants to make one of these bags. We plan to make more at our April retreat!

 

***UPDATE***

Aunt Cathy sent me pictures of her finished bag!

I love how those stripes match up!

The pink/mauve/dusty rose color palette works sooooooo well together. These are leftover fabrics from a quilt she was working on.

    I have been searching everywhere on the websites for this Sew Together Bag and finally found that it is no longer available. Is it a possibility this pattern can be shared by you or someone? Or a suggestion as to now to acquire one? Love the bag and would make wonderful gifts for quilters, knitters, & scrapbook friends or just a cool bag to keep all our “stuff”. Please email me with any help.

    Many thanks,
    Diane
