Project Bag Tutorial
This large project pouch will easily hold the fabric and pattern for your next project, or your works in progress. Why not make several because let’s face it we never just work on one project at a time! I’ve designed the pouch to showcase some of your favourite scraps, but if you wanted to you could just use a single fabric front and back and show off a large-scale print instead.
1/2m of fabric for the exterior. I used a grey linen.
1/2m of lining fabric. I used a grey blender.
A selection of scraps cut to 4 inches high by 2.5 inches wide, you will need 16 in total. I used Makower’s Stitch in Time fabrics which I fussy cut.
1/2m of light or medium fusible interfacing. I used Vlieseline F220
A 15 inch zip (or larger cut down to size which is what I did as I never seem to have the right size zip to hand!)
Cut 4 pieces 16 inches wide by 5.5 inches high from the exterior fabric
Cut 2 pieces 16 inches wide by 14 inches high from the lining fabric
Tip – If you want to make your exterior from 1 single fabric instead of patchwork cut 2 pieces of exterior fabric the same size as the lining pieces
Cut 16 pieces of 2.5 inch wide and 4 inch high scraps for the centre strips of patchwork
Cut 2 pieces of interfacing 16 inches wide by 14 inches high
Cut 2 pieces 1.5 inch square from the exterior fabric for zip tabs
Seam Allowance – ¼ an inch throughout
