Modern Sunbonnet Sue's Musings

Musings from the mind of a modern day Sue:
Zippy Strippy Bags

I've finished three Zippy Strippy bags to give as gifts for my staff at work. I had planned to do a different  pattern, but chose to do this one instead. It was a lot quicker and I needed to finish gifts quickly. The pattern is an Atkinson Designs and you can probably find it at your local quilt shop or online. They have tons of patterns that provide some different ways to put items together. This pattern uses their technique for putting in zippers that makes the process very simple.

I embellished two of the bags with rickrack and one with a yo-yo & button. My Groovy Girls club gave us patterns for additional ideas, but I chose to do my own. The rickrack on the green bag was my own design addition.

Here's a better look at the bag.

Hope everyone has all their Christmas stitching done. But, for those who don't, I'm still working on a few gifts. And, I have baking planned for Friday. I made plans with my granddaughter, Emma, to bake Christmas cookies. She's only two, almost three, but loves to climb up on a chair and help in the kitchen.

Merry Christmas!
