Before I get to the quilty stuff, I just wanted to say that last night I walked by the mirror (yes, nothing strange about that) but the person looking back at me looked like my mother. If my mother was around, I would have had a nice conversation with her.
Instead the conversation was with myself.....and it was Woooahh....you look like your mother......almost scared myself. As I got to thinking about it, my mother is 73 (sorry mom.....for telling your age...you don't look it you really don't....I have to say that because when I turn 73 I don't want to look 73...so me being her....nope, not a bit over 60)..... Anyways, I saw my mother on Mother's Day (I truly hate that day but that will be for another post)....but she looked wonderful. On my drive back to Texas I couldn't help but think how awesome she looked and if I look like her now, man, I am going to be one hot granny.....(are you laughing).
So....Sherry from Manicurist by day, quilter by night, emailed me with a zipper bag....she knew I had all these zippers (oh yes, who is laughing at all my zippers now)???? You can click on the zipper bag and it will take you to the tutorial.
So this is the light side......
This is the dark side, we all know we have a dark side....fess up....
Now this would be a fun bag for someone who likes to zip.....and unzip...I think it would drive a teacher crazy. I did change it up some to where I top stitched the zippers after sewing them together so it was not so poofy. But....sad to say, I did not enjoy doing this...you might.....we all like different things. No one is going to come and take my sewing toys away are they for saying that????
Now I forgot to take a picture of the strips but I sewed 9 strips together from my island jelly roll, sandwiched it and started swirling...oh how I love to swirl, with the machine and a hoop skirt.
I made these bags........yes, used four more zippers...that is a total of 18 zippers used...so now how many zippers do I have left....ha!!! You can click here
for the tutorial.
