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 Kimberly’s Sac Project by Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts! Joanna designed this bag so that it’s very beginner friendly and easy to make! The pattern for this bag is very Layer Cake friendly and you can make up to 4 bags with one Layer Cake.
Here is what you’ll need to make this project:
- The Kimberly’s Sac Pattern
- 1 Layer Cake (or 9 Fat Quarters)
- 1/2 yard bottom/scrap fabric
- 1/2 yard lining fabric
- 1/2 yard batting and/or fleece
- 2 D-ring & Swivel Hooks
- 1 Button with shank
Joanna did a video tutorial on the Kimberly’s Sac 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 Kimberly’s Sac Bag:
Quilty Staffer Elva made her Kimberly’s Sac Bag using Dear Mum by Robin Pickens for Moda Fabrics. She says “I like to use a thick satin stitch to sew the side tabs on. I think it looks really good and it definitely reinforces the seams!”
She also made a second bag using Panda Love by Kelly Panacci for Riley Blake Designs. For this bag, she decided to switch it up and use a magnet to close the bag rather than button and loop. Now it doesn’t matter which way you put the bag on, it’s always right!
Quilty Staffer Lilly made her Kimberly’s Sac Bag using Dot Dot Boo! by Me & My Sister Designs for Moda Fabrics. She says “I used two layers of batting instead of one because I wanted it to be more sturdy. I also put the button a little higher than the pattern says so I could fit my books in there. #bookworm”
Quilty Staffer Nancy made her Kimberly’s Sac Bag using Floral Splendor by Cathy Nordstrom for Andover Fabrics. She used a 1″ Polypro Strapping instead of batting to give more stability and durability to the strap.
Quilty Staffer Deborah made her Kimberly’s Sac Bag using Autumn Vibes by Maureen Cracknell for Art Gallery Fabrics. To make her bag, she used canvas for the outside and did not use batting.
Ange of A Little Patchwork (@alittlepatchwork) made her Kimberly’s Sac Bag using a selection of denims and linens from Robert Kaufman Fabrics. She says “I practiced my hand stitching using Aurifil floss, especially because the patchwork panels are perfect for adding stitches to.”
Jessica of Skein and Hook (@skeinandhook) made her Kimberly’s Sac Bag using Flower Sugar by Lecien Fabrics and Moda Denim & Chambray by Moda Fabrics. She says “I decided to skip the outer assembly using the layer cakes and I chose one solid print for the front and the back. I think this pattern is pretty versatile!”
Ann of My Wanderign Path (@mywanderingpath) made her Kimberly’s Sac Bag using Urban Cottage by Urban Chiks for Moda Fabrics. She says “In addition to the Urban Cottage quilting cotton prints that I used for the patchwork, I used a cotton slub (for the bottom) and a woven (for the lining) from the collection as well. I love all the different textures!”
Kairle of Kairle Oaks (@kairleoaks) made her Kimberly’s Sac Bag using Desert Bloom by Sherri & Chelsi for Moda Fabrics.
