What are you most proud of? Figuring out how to sew on the zipper - it's been a long time! I could not understand the directions so went to YouTube and quickly found a demo that worked just fine!! I had to go back and make the zipper tighter and fix a few things, but I like the final product. I'm making one for each of my two sisters. My younger sister liked the colors in the little cell phone holder I posted some time ago, so I used the same ones for her bag. Also like that the directions called for using denim for the batting to give the bag some heft. I cut up an old pair of blue jeans and recylced the cloth.... funny to think of them in this pretty little bag!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I did not do the quilting the way they suggested because I could not figure out how to draw the lines. So I just started with a good angle and then used my pressure foot as a guide to judge the distance between the quilting lines. It's not perfect, but I like the look.

I posted a new cell phone cover in purple with directions - just search for it and should be able to find it!

Ah, I think the pattern was part of this page before Craftsy changed the format and it got lost. This can be found in the book: Modern Log Cabin Quilting: 25 Simple Quilts and Patchwork Projects on p. 135. I purchased it - probably on Amazon - and then found out that my local library had a copy. It was worth purchasing - lots of good things to make!

Where is the pattern for this? I thought I bought it and I cant find it to download. Thank you.

Hi, I did not post this pattern as I found it in a book. See the comments above where I give the book and page number where this can be found. Basically, you create four log cabin squares. Then you sew two together so that you have two sides of the bag. I think the size is for a 9" zipper so your rectangles at that point are about 9" by 5". After that I put the fabric on batting and did some simple quilting. Then, follow the directions for putting a zip bag together using this online tutorial on YouTube: Hope this helps!
