We are dedicating 2018 to our favorite little precut, the fat quarter! We are doing this to celebrate our 15th anniversary as a company and because a fat quarter has 18″ x 20″ of usable fabric (too perfect!). Every first Friday of the month, we will be featuring one of our wonderful quilters and the project they make with their Year of the Fat Quarter Bundle!
We are sew happy to have 9 wonderful bloggers making projects out of each of the Year of the Fat Quarter Bundles with us! Be sure to check out their blogs to see the details of their projects and keep up with the Year of the Fat Quarter fun on with #fqsyotfq on Instagram!
We’re shaking things up on the Jolly Jabber! We are bringing life back to our old projects with Blog Remixes! Every other Thursday from today until November 15, we will be throwing it back to one of our tutorials with new fabrics, notions, tips and tricks to inspire you to make your next project. Whether you’ve seen this project before or it’s your first time, there’s a remix project for everyone. This week’s remix is the Simple Zipper Bag we did with Sherri McConnell back in 2016! This project is a great way to use your Mini Charm Packs since you can make 2 Simple Zipper Bags with just one Mini Charm Pack!
Sherri did a video tutorial on the Simple Zipper Bag with Kimberly when she came to visit us in 2016! Grab your materials and follow along with us as we make this fun and handy project:
We even had some awesome quilty friends make their version of the Simple Zipper Bag:
Quilty Staffer Bev made her Simple Zipper Bag using Harmony by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics. She says “The front of the bag and the lining are sandwiched for quilting , no need to make a separate lining!”
Angela of ALC Creates (@spicyredhead) made her Simple Zipper Bag using Best. Day. EVER! by April Rosenthal for Moda Fabric. She says “I made 2 zipper pouches. For the first one I used a mini charm pack that I’ve been holding on to for a special project. The second pouch front is made from EPP hexies that I hand stitched together and then cut to size. I absolutely love how it turned out and can’t wait to use it!”
This project is easy to make, scrap friendly and perfect for your own home or as a gift! Be sure to share your projects using #SimpleZipperBag and tag us (@fatquarterhsop) so we can see and share your work!
