Cut out and made these bags today, however no embroidery :( so I hope you don't mind looking. They are lined with the Baby Dry, so can be useful for cosmetics, medicines, etc. Do you recognize the outer fabrics? Have a great night or day, wherever you are-Toogie

Love, love, love the bags and fabric choice. am not sure if I can get baby dry here in germany but i sometimes use shower curtain material for cosmetics bags and pencil cases, I only make them for friends and family members. But you do such an excellent job in sewing, still need more practice. Thank you for sharing. Hugs, Mary

Mary, I have been sewing for years and that's why you think it looks so good. I've had a lot of practice, just keep sewing. I am sure yours look fine. I know my first things I made weren't perfect by any means. I am sure what you are using is fine, too. I had the Baby Dry left from other projects, and since it was suitable for this, I used it. Thank you for looking.-Toogie

I think I did these 9 1/2inch x 10 1/2 inch with the zipper going the 10 1/2in seam, but you can do them any size. I made a 2 inch bottom corner.

I love, love these--I would carry them like a wristlet!! Want to show off those beautiful fabrics. What is baby dry fabric? Is it what they call PUL [what they sell for making changing pads etc?? I've found that at Nancy's Notions online.

1 comment
toogie by toogie 11 Aug 2015

No, it is not PUL. It is a bonded fabric, one side flannel feel and the other a rubberized vinyl, bonded together. I had some PUL one time. Didn't use it for a while. When I did the backside was stuck together, when I tried to pul it apart it 'peeled' in places. I like Baby Dry a whole lot better.

WOW, your bags are super nice and especially well made. For sure, Love the owl an hearts...I made pencil cases , this week ( only 2 ....) and they are not pretty as yours. I had trouble with the zipper on a bag, on an other bag, I embroider an owl appliqué ( 25 steps). And I could not work a lot ( only 2 pencil cases...grrrrrrrrrrrrrr). In short, I will not be proud to show my pencil cases...I hope to make a new one today, with several owl embroidery.. lol I spent my life doing industrial sewing, but I sewed especially sweatshirt, zipper not often

Very beautiful work Toogie, love them

Hugs and thanks for sharing

I'm glad you like the owls. This piece was left, from the 2 fat quarters I used, on the #2 birthday dress. I haven't been too busy sewing, but I'm hoping to get back in the swing of things, thank you.-Toogie

What a great bunch of zip bags!!! That's a good idea to use the baby dry fabric. It will make the bags useful for many purposes.

1 comment
toogie by toogie 01 Aug 2015

The baby dry was mostly pieces I had left on the edge from other projects. I may not use it so freely, until I am sure I can get more. I did contact 'people' so hopefully will still be available for me.
