Valentine’s day is right around the corner and if you’re looking for a treaty for your sweetie (or treat yourself, we won’t judge!) then the Red Heart Fancy Zipper Bag is an easy and quick project that is simply bursting with love! Nothing says love like a handmade project, so treat someone special in your life to a fantastic new bag to show your love!
Two 1/3 Yard Cuts of Contrasting Fabric
Even if you’ve never worked with Bosal In-R-Form before, have no fear! This project is as easy as they come and creates an adorable free standing back that makes the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day. Cut both of your fabric choices into 12″x21″ rectangles (you may even have enough to make two bags)! Once that is complete, you’ll also need to cut your Bosal In-R-Form into the same 12″x21″ rectangle. Lay the Bosal In-R-Form down first, followed by the first fabric facing up and the second fabric facing down. Add some straight quarter-inch seams on both short sides of this stack and be sure to use some pins to keep everything together and even.
Open on both sides of the fabric and flip right sides out, at this point both fabrics should be facing out with the Bosal In-R-Form in the center. Hold this in place and press to activate the adhesive. Looks at that! You’re almost done! Fold both sides of your fabric sandwich in and add a Missouri Star Fancy Zips to create an open ended box that will take form once you box everything up and work on those corners. Now that you have the basic ideas of this project (we told you it was SEW easy!) check out Misty’s full tutorial complete with instructions to bring this project together in time for Valentine’s Day!
