It’s Time For Sewing Lessons!

It’s Time For Sewing Lessons!

After my fun time sewing honey bun strips together for the “bloom” quilt I wasn’t about to throw them away!  I decided that the “lil zipper bag” featured on Moda Bake Shop earlier this month would be the perfect sewing project for my young sewing daughter :)  Ally was more than excited!

This is most of what we started with…100_02381

(This project would also go well with Natalie’s series of honey bun projects it only requires 9 -9 1/2″ long strips from your honey bun!)

This is Ally learning one of the most important skills of any seamstress…100_0243The art of the seam ripper!

This is Ally quilting the bags outer fabric layers… I’m so proud of her!100_0249

I helped with the zipper…

But otherwise it was pretty much all her!  ( I spurred a few helps and ideas :) ) But here’s the finished product!
