Notions Bag

As a break from knitting, I worked on my Sashiko. Then I made it into a little zippered notions bag.

One square of fabric for the back, two for lining and a matching zipper.

Inserted the zipper.

Layered right sides together and sewed with a quarter inch, leaving an opening to turn.

The zipper was closed when I sewed the front and back together, but I needed it open to be able to pull the lining through to the bag and then the wrong side of the bag to the right side. It was sort of like working inside a double pocket!

I like to use a pointed chop stick to help gently poke out the corners.

A light pressing and away you go.

How pretty! In the photos, it almost looks like beadwork.
