Hey! I actually sewed something!
I’ve had a heck of a time getting my act together on any and all crafting projects lately. Part of it has to do with my unpredictable newborn schedule…and part of it has to do with the fact that we cleaned everything up for guests to come and I’m not quite sure I’m ready to bust out all my sewing supplies yet (madness and messiness will certainly ensue).
But before guests came, I had the pressure of coming up with a Mother’s Day gift for my mom which lead me to finally sewing this bag that I’ve had my eye on for quite awhile.
I don’t remember where I first saw this bag, but the moment I saw it I knew it would be perfect for toting around the pieces to my La Passacaglia English Paper Piecing Project. It’s been in the back of my mind ever since.
See? It has so many pockets! Perfect for all the teeny pieces associated with EPP! The bag is called the “Sew Together Bag,” and I got my pattern here from Craftsy.
This was my first time making any sort of bag so I was a little bit nervous. The pattern instructions themselves were mostly pretty good. Some of the steps were a bit confusing. But luckily someone in the reviews had commented that there is a step by step sew along on the Quilt Barn Blog (find the sew along here) which helped a TON because it has pictures!
I made this particular bag for my mom for Mother’s Day (she’s not doing the La Passacaglia, but she has some other EPP projects going on) but I’m really excited to make one for myself! It didn’t take too long to complete and I really love how it turned out. If only every sewing project only took me two evenings to complete…
