Sew Together bag- a win!

In my last post, I was rather down about sewing. But today I report a win that I am very happy about.

I got the iconic Sew Together pattern from Sew Demented. I feel really comfortable making zippered pouches, so I wanted to give this a shot.

Although there were some parts that took some thinking, this must be a wonderfully written pattern because I was able to follow it quite easily with very few mistakes.

It also served as a great skill builder for different sewing techniques. It didn’t take nearly as long as I thought it would- I imagine if I did it all in one go a second time around, I could do it in less than 2 hours.

I used essex linen on the exterior, cotton and steel for the binding, and thoroughbred on the interior, and more cotton and steel on the pocket linings. I love love love it. I am probably going to have to make another. šŸ™‚
