Bagettes and Project Pouches.

Using Bridget’s Bagettes’ pattern by Atkinson Designs, purchased at Quilting Adventures, I made this bagette to carry supplies to my Liberated Quilting Group, which I attend at a different quilt shop, Blue Crab Quilt Co.

I couldn’t stop there. I bought a yard of vinyl ($5.50 a yard) and some more zippers. I made a Project Pouch to store my improv blocks and “parts” for the Liberated Quilting Group:

I'm using a charm pack called Sphere. There is one completed block in the pouch.

The back was made with scraps.

I had an idea for more storage — pouches in every color for my small scraps:

I attached them to my design wall with pins:

I like how they look on the wall –instant art.

WHAT I LEARNED MAKING THESE:

1. Don’t forget to pull the zipper into the middle before you cut off the ends. I did this twice.
2. You don’t need a walking foot but the seams might be a little wonky if you don’t.
3. I didn’t have fusible woven interfacing and used two layers of batting instead. This worked fine.
