I just wanted to make a quickie post about sewing project bags! I’ve made 5 so far in my life, 4 of which have zipper pockets inside (and I’m very proud of this, thank you very much). I’ve been using this tutorial for the bag and this video tutorial for the interior zippered pouch.

Fun fact: I haven’t bought any fabric for these! I’ve been able to use leftovers from previous projects (husband’s bow ties, our duvet cover) and household fabrics that weren’t living up to their destiny anymore (pillowcases, sheets, shower curtains, etc.).

I’m a big proponent for not letting things go to waste & reusing things. For example, I love the yarn I bought that was recycled from a thrift store sweater and I even bought a turkey roasting pan from Goodwill to dye yarn in!

I have a lot of ideas for bags in the future. I’ve been using some metal zippers in fun colors, and I’m enjoying playing around with fabrics and bag sizes & shapes. I think I’d actually like to sell them eventually. I need to work on professionalizing a lot of my work, but these bags are a lot of fun to make.

What say you? Do you like repurposed items getting a new life? I sure do!

Weena helping.
This went to my latest FibreShare partner. Hi Karissa!
I’m obsessed with these neon zippers.
