I took a Craftsy class called Zip It Up: Easy Techniques for Zippered Bags. This class is taught by Joan Hawley of Lazy Girl Designs. She teaches 3 different zippered bags in this class. I've made 2 so far. I made and blogged about the Runaround Bag in July. This time, I made Nickita!
I machine quilted the top fabric, batting and lining fabric. I used a simple meander.
I attached one half of the zipper to the quilt sandwich. I love matching up the zipper color with the top fabric. It really adds to the total look of the bag.
Joan walks you through the process of getting a professional looking zippered tote!
In less than 2 hours, my tote was finished! My daughter loved this bag! Looks like I'm going to have to make another one for myself!
