Fat Quarter Shop Quiltalong: Mini Scrap Patch Bag

The Fat Quarter Shop is doing such a fun series called their Blog Remix series. They are rebooting, essentially, older, more forgotten tutorials and bringing them to light again. This Mini Scrap Patch Bag is one of them. Aren’t those tiny rounded corners sooooo cute???

Kimberly has a great video tutorial that shows a step-by-step process, which even as a veteran pouch maker, helped give me the confidence to know I was doing it correctly. I could stop, rewind, watch things again, etc. and in the end I have such a cute little pouch to show for it. I used all pink scraps from my stash and a bright pink zipper. There will be no question in anyone’s mind that this pouch is mine! 🙂 If you’re looking for teacher gifts, in-law gifts, neighbor gifts, etc etc for the holidays, this is a fun way to use up some scraps and make a fun pouch anyone will love!

Pink Sew Together Bags

Possibly the most feared bag for most of us is the Sew Together Bag. The pattern does not have many diagrams, there are a lot of steps, etc etc etc. However, there are many blogs out there that have tips and photos that make the process less scary. I have made several now and as long as I take the time to understand each step, it goes very smoothly and well.

One of my dear sewing friends had a birthday in September and I thought it would be fun to make her a Sew Together Bag. Much to my joy, she requested a pink bag! I looked through my pink fabrics and tried to pick few different ones with varying hues of pink. In the end, I was very happy with the outside (all of it, really 🙂 I made an extra one for myself as well!
