Completely happy Thursday buddies! In right now’s video tutorial, I’m displaying you easy methods to make the Sew Collectively Bag by Sew Demented. This bag has been on my “to-do” listing for some time now, however I’ve to say I used to be a bit intimidated by all of these zippers! Nevertheless it’s a brand new yr, and I made a decision to kick it off with a bang!

I’ve made three of those baggage now, and I’m hooked! The paper sample could be difficult to comply with, so I contacted the designer and received permission to do a video tutorial for you! I’ll be sharing all of my tricks to make this bag simpler, together with a step-by-step tutorial that can assist you by way of each step!

My Ideas and Methods!

TIP #1: Have enjoyable with the skin panel! You will get artistic right here! I don’t have a proper sample for my outdoors panels. I simply had enjoyable stitching! I sewed collectively squares making a panel that was a bit bigger than the ultimate piece within the sample, then reduce it right down to measurement.

For the bag within the picture above, I used (28) 1-1/2″ squares, (16) 1-1/2″ x 4″ background strips, and (2) 2″ x 4″ items for the corners. I sewed the rows collectively to create the on-point patchwork, then trimmed the ultimate part right down to measurement.

I used Sew-In-Foam for my outer panel. It offers the bag some nice stability, and it offers your quilting stitches nice definition! It’s fusible, so that you don’t must quilt in the event you don’t wish to. However I feel it provides to the fantastic thing about the bag!

For the interior pockets I used a Fusible Fleece. It’s a bit thicker than common interfacing, and in addition has slightly “squish” to it, making your bag good and smooth!

TIP #2: Its necessary to press your items as you go. That helps hold every part wanting good as you sew them collectively and creates a a lot nicer completed product as properly. For this venture, I used my new Laurastar Titan for this whole venture. The dry steam is ideal for bag making, and made attaching the fusible interfacing a breeze!

TIP #3: For those who plan to quilt your outer panel, I like to recommend making it 1/2″ bigger than the sample requires. (So a 1/2″ wider and longer.) The quilting attracts the material in and shrinks your panel a bit. For those who aren’t going to quilt it, then simply make the panel the dimensions known as for within the sample. In case you are making a number of baggage like I did, I like to recommend making all of them on the similar time. I made all the outdoors panels first, then sewed all of them collectively going by way of every step on the similar time!

TIP #4: The bag requires exact-size zippers. I want working with zippers which can be longer than wanted so I can reduce them down! Within the video, I’ll present you ways to do that! The one zipper I received the precise measurement for was the outer zipper. However after placing them collectively, I feel I would like a bit longer zipper for that outer one. The sample requires an 18″ zipper, but when I make any extra of those I’ll most likely go for a 20″ zipper. Be aware: For those who get an extended zipper, you have to to regulate the size of the binding strips as properly.

TIP #5: As you possibly can see, these baggage can get a bit cumbersome with all the layers. In case your machine is having a tough time getting by way of all the layers, I like to recommend making an attempt a denim needle in your machine, a stitching stiletto instrument to assist push the material by way of, and going gradual!
