I found a great tutorial on how to make zippered bags - a free PDF on Craftsy - called "Ruffled Zipper Pouch". I modified it a bit and went goofy making bags….right now I'm up to four.
I've got to stop.
Here's the first one - cherries and a cherry charm attached to the zipper.
Here's the second - I found fabric called "Fruit Ladies". Here they are at the beach….with a sea shell charm attached to the zipper.
Here's the THIRD - witch hats, bats and shoes….with a purple witch hat attached to the zipper (can you tell I'd started to stitch for the Halloween Ornament exchange at that point??)
Here's the FOURTH - little black cats and pumpkins - with a black cat and pumpkin charm attached to the zipper. (Can you tell I thoroughly am enamoured with charms?)!
"OK - but what's the SURPRISE," you ask.
I can't possibly use all four. Besides, I've got more ideas for other designs and modifications for future bags…..so I decided to give these bags away to four followers. The SURPRISE is you won't know what goodies will be in the bags.
Here's all you need to do:
- be a follower of this blog
- place a comment on this post and select which bag you'd like to receive
- please make sure I can reach you via e-mail to confirm your mailing address (i.e., no "no-reply bloggers")
Drawing will be Friday, September 12th.
Keep yourself surrounded by stitches ~ Cheers ~
