Batting scrap at least 10 X 10 inches
Choose 9 strips from your honey bun. Cross cut each strip 9 1/2 inches. Your strips will be 1 1/2 inches X 9 1/2 inches.
Arrange them and sew the 9 1/2 inch sides together. Square up the ‘new’ fabric piece as shown.
Layer the lining wrong side up (I used muslin), batting and the stripped fabric right side up.
Using a walking foot to quilt in the ditch of each strip, then zig zag the entire edge.
Stitch close to the zipper thread. Yes I used my walking foot instead of a zipper foot…use what you are comfortable with. I also used an ‘invisible’ zipper but any style of zipper will do.
Repeat the same steps for the other side of the zipper, resulting in a tube.
Turn the tube inside out and match up and pin the sides.
Once the sides are sewn, pinch open the bottom corner and form a triangle. It measures about an inch from the point. Sew across the triangle, zig zag and trim or serger.
Turn out your corners.
One lovely lil zipper Bag that is 8 1/2 X 3 1/4 X 2 inches, plus many other fun projects. I am currently planning several…all from one honey bun!
