Hipster Bag

It's Friday!!! Yeah!!
Today's project is the Hipster Bag.
Free pattern Here
We chose 3 fq's from the box and used strips of each of
these to piece the strap together, as it calls for
a 2 1/2" X WOF for the strap.
This pattern has a great technique for inserting the
zipper, and a unique method of stacking
the pieces together, stitching around 3 sides, turning
and then stitching the bag closed in the bottom
of the outside pocket.  Thus making the inside
of the bag finished with no raw edges.
We were able to complete this cute
bag, start to finish, in 30 minutes.   And that
includes cutting. It's a great project for
a sewing day or for younger seamstresses.
The only warning we have is to follow the diagram and
instructions for the assembly layout carefully.
It is correct, but seems odd, just do as
it states and it will turn out perfect.
Please tag us on your social media posts, we love to
see what you are creating with the boxes.
Have a great 4th of July!!
See you next week!
