Eeeekkkk!! I popped into Fiona's Fabrics a couple of weeks ago to buy some more zippers, and couldn't resist a few of these gorgeous "Spark of Happiness" fabrics! They were perfect for my latest project - this bag has been popping over the past 3-4 years on several blogs that I follow, and I thought it was time I made one myself. It's called "Sew Together Bag" and the pattern is by SewDemented - you can download it as a PDF file from her website...
...gorgeous fabrics, bright coloured zippers, and a selection of Aurifil threads in matching colours made this a really cheerful project to sew! The pockets are all lined, and once the zippers have been stitched into place a smart row of top stitching finishes it off...
...a long zipper keeps the bag closed, and inside there is plenty of storage place for just about EVERYTHING!...
...this was on my work desk today, and holds a huge selection of stationary - stapler and spare staples, pens, pencils, post-it notes, and just about everything else you can think of! It received lots of admiring comments from my colleagues, so I may have to make a few more for my office buddies!
