Top Zip Quilted Bag done ITH in one hooping using an old pair of jeans...lined with no raw edges...it was a bit tricky to figure this one out....I am pleased with the results. I will now digitize for all my hoop sizes with the largest being 8" x 14"...Thanks for looking!

Very nice! I don't digitize, but I would really like to try a zipper bag. Would be lovely for gifts.

Well you should...it is amazing to watch your embroidery machine stitch out an ITH design and a zipper...go for it!

Thanks Maria...Yes, you noticed...there are zipper tabs on each side of the zipper that match the lining...small but effective...

Great job. I would love to know how you did a top zipper in a lined purse in just 1 hooping. You must be magical!

Thank you...it did take me a bit of doing to finally figure it out...and the process is a bit different than "normal" ITH projects...

Nice bag! I love the jean usage...have some of that lining fabric. Another great job!

Thanks, Tonya...the jean fabric was a bit heavy which I really noticed when I turned the bag....but it did work...it will be better with the larger sizes.

Wonder how they would look done in leftover bridal fabrics!!!! I still have left from both daughters weddings as I did all the bridal party dresses. Gorgeous bag either way!

sewtired by sewtired 06 Sep 2017

Bridal fabric might make a lovely quilt top with embroidered designs and decorative top stitching. There's a name for this type of quilt which totally escapes me now.

How would one go about buying this ith design? I have made many ITH bags but have not found a design for top zipper.
