Today I am over on Ellison Lane– sharing this Quilt as you go zipper pouch. This is part of A Patchwork Summer Series. It runs from May 12- July 30th…and it will be FULL of fantastic tutorials, ideas and things to get you sewing during the summer. I was one of the lucky gals to be sewing along and sharing something.
Before you head on over to find out how to do it….how about I share a little bit.
A Zipper pouch comes in so handy…especially during the summer time. I find myself in the car a lot. Having this little pouch around, I can stuff it with a sewing project, a snack, or whatever. A quick grab and go pouch.
With this pouch, I though I would try something new. Quilt as you Go techique. I have become a big fan of this method. By the time you are finished with the quilting and piecing, you, the back is finished at the same time. I love that! It saves a lot of time and I am all for time savers. Using this method, the inside or lining of the bag has a quilted look.
All the raw edges or seams are covered by continious binding. It’s a little bit tricky to get on, but I love how it borders the fabric and stands out. This would be a great way to add a little bit of color pop and fun to the bag.
Are you ready to sew your own quilt as you go zipper pouch?
*fabric is from Andover. Love it!
