Sew Together Bag (with Video Tutorial)

The path of this project began with a tree skirt. Random right? I made this bombtastic Hexagonal Tree Skirt this year and had enough excess from the trimmings to create a 14″ x 16″ rectangle. So naturally, I stitched everything up and quilted it without having any idea what I was going to make with it.

Preparation Complete

After what seemed like years but was more like a couple days of me staring at it on my WIP Wall, I realized that it would be the perfect size for the exterior of a new Sew Together Bag.

And as soon as this was decided, I contacted Michelle of SewDemented to see if I could do a YouTube tutorial and she said YES so yaaaaay!

So here are the finished pictures of my bag. I’m obsessed and plan to make another one super soon.

For those who are curious, these are the fabrics that I used for the interior of the bag.
