Bree is visiting today from My Crafty Crap. She’s just gone on blogger maternity leave after the birth of her beautiful little boy! I have been following along with her Amy Butler Style Stitches Sew Along all year, and it’s not too late to jump on the band wagon…in fact, September’s bag is the Blossom Bag (available to download for free!!).
Hey there, Sew Sweetness readers! I’m Bree from My Crafty Crap, and I’m so thankful to Sara for having me here today.
First & foremost, you need to decide what you’re going to make (I’m going to refer to a “pouch” to keep things simple). This method can be adapted to pretty much any pattern, or if you just want to wing it for a simple pouch. Any time I’m working on a bag pattern that requires putting in a zipper (except in the lining, for that method, this is my go-to tutorial), I skip all instructions for the zipper, do it my own way, then go back to the pattern to finish up whatever I’m making. I have yet to find a pattern where I couldn’t use this method.
