On yet another occasion when sleep has evaded me, I got to thinking about sewing projects. I recalled that I had some leftover sheets of vinyl from when I made the Sew Sturdy Organiser Case (posted 31 December 2016). Surely there was away that I could use them up? I often have part-completed projects piled up at the side of my sewing desk, how much better it would be if they could be stored in project bags – and how much better if those bags had a clear vinyl window so that I could tell quickly and easily what was in the bag.
I had a few pieces of the quilting cotton left over from the small Maggie bag project and decided to see if I could make up a window project bag. The sewing machine was threaded with the correct coloured thread and I had a spare zip in Bright Pink that would compliment the colours in the printed cotton. Within 40 minutes I had completed the project bag and I am delighted with it. I will keep it on hand and as soon as I have another ‘window’ (see what I did there?) in my sewing schedule will write up instructions on how to make these decorative and useful bags.
