Tips & Tricks for the Sew Together Bag

A couple years ago, my sister put a fire under me and I finally purchased the pattern for the Sew Together Bag.  I was honestly quite intimidated by this project, even before I read the pattern! There are 4 zippers in this bag and it just looks very complex! The only way to try something new is to jump right in!

I decided on my fabric, for my first bag, and followed all the cutting instructions. Here are the items you will need to make your own Sew Together Bag (plus some tips & tricks)!

Basic Sewing Supplies Needed

sew together BAG – CONSTRUCTION

The first bag took me about 2 days to make. I would have finished it sooner, but finally stumbled upon a great tutorial. This helped immensely, as I am a visual learner.  I love pictures!!  Go check out the tutorial by Quilt Barn – She breaks everything down for you!


These take a while to make, but are completely worth the effort!  I had to keep one for myself and I use it everyday!  Every now and then, I have several available in my shop.  Usually around Mother’s Day and Christmas!
