the truth is, everyone on instagram (i'm @rachelgriffith) was making their own #sewtogetherbag.
i just had to have one for myself.
i went with the quilt as you go method (QAYG) for the exterior.
i used pellon fusible fleece instead of a thin interfacing.
i chose 6 different fabrics for my pocket linings to give it more of scrappy look.
i left out the pin cushion and needle landing.
and i did most of the bindings by hand. (old habit.)
all in all, i'm in love.
i think the bulkiness during construction was my least favorite part, but that's my fault because i used fusible fleece.
and get this, i was freaking out over the zippers (remember this post?) but the zippers were actually pretty easy.
and here's the truth ... y'all need a this bag, too.
it holds EVERYTHING.
go and tell your husband i said so.
