I think I've "finished" this runner 3 times but now it's really finished. Here it is all stitched and "finished".
Then I decided it needed some surface stitching. Here it is all embroidered and "finished." Much better!
And I thought it needed a bit of big stitch quilting around the center. So here it is quilted and "finished." And now - it's REALLY finished.
Then I moved on to bags. I agreed to do a demo at my guild meeting on putting a zipper in a bag.
Of course - with a zipper comes a little bling. I do forget sometimes that not all quilters have a garment sewing background. Zippers scare people? Really?
Putting a zipper in a bag is SO easy when you do it with 2 flat pieces of fabric. Much easier than inserting one into a garment.
Sweet Zip if you want to know how to do the zipper. But don't limit yourself to HER measurements ... play around and have fun making bags!
