Zip-It Up: Bendy Bag

The final project of my Zip-It Up class is the Bendy Bag, an adorable little bag with zipper casing and faux piping.

Up first is fabric selection. I'm using a fat quarter from the Paper Obsessed collection for the outside of the bag that I had left over from Snail Mail, and a neutral fat quarter for the lining. I'm pairing it with a bright yellow zipper, and I just love that color combination.

I'm not sure why this bag didn't need to be quilted, but that certainly saves time on the construction process. Constructing this took quite a bit more work than the other ones. Though my sewing skills left much to be desired, the finished bag is actually very cute, and the two features I love most about this bag are the faux piping and the grab tab made from leftover zipper tape.

With this bag completed, I'm done with this class. I'm happy to report that it did help me get over my fear of zippers. I already signed up for Joan Hawley's next class on Craftsy: Zippered Bags With a Twist. I'm excited to make those projects soon.
