I took Joan Hawley's class on Craftsy called Zip it Up, Easy Techniques for Zippered Bags. I have made a few projects with zippers, but not too many! I thought this would be a good class for me. I got the class on sale and it includes patterns to three bags. I thought it was a good deal.
The Runaround Bag is the first of the 3 patterns. It's also the smallest. I think it measures about 7 1/2 inches by 9 1/2 inches. It's great to carry a few items like your cell phone, money and credit cards. It would be perfect to carry when going to see the fireworks!!
It only uses 2 fat quarters, a zipper and fusible fleece. I had everything at home but I did buy a different zipper. I wanted a beige one but I only had white ones at home. I had a few coupons for Joann's so I went shopping earlier today.
Here's a close up of the front.
Here's the back pocket. I used one of the decorative stitches on my machine when topstitching the edge.
The layers were all assembled in a certain order. I had to sew all around the edges and "birth" it through the zipper!! So fun! I think they'll make great gifts. The whole bag took less than 2 hours. I guess there's a reason I have so many fat quarters hanging around!!
