About a week ago, a couple of the SewMod girls came over for lunch and a sewing day. We worked on a few projects including these cute bags from Terry Atkinson’s pattern Zippy Strippy.

Love this pattern! It has 3 bag sizes and best of all, you get to use more scraps! Since the strips are only 2-1/2″ x 6-1/2″, I can even use some of those jelly roll pieces I have left over. And don’t be scared of the zipper girls. It’s super easy to put in. Terry Atkinson has her own line of zippers and can usually be found at your local quilt store in an impressive variety of colors.

I made mine using my scraps from the line Ginger Blossom by Sandi Henderson.

Andrea made her’s from fabrics with dress forms on it and added a gray flange to finish it off. I don’t know how I ever missed this fabric in the quilt shop…cute!

And this is one that Shelley had made Andrea last year for her birthday. Pretty fall colors and she went the extra step to quilt it.

Several of these bags could easily be completed within a day. So these would make great gifts for a sewing group, fill them up for a beginner quilter with all your favorite notions or a travel bag for the teen on your list. Make the small one for your co-worker to toss in her purse. Use one to tote around your latest hand project.

Rummage through that giant pile of scraps and make a day of it!

The Sweet Pickins’ club at Quilt In Joy is a year long club that features the This And That Pattern Company. They meet every month for a demo on a pattern taught by Laura, one of Quilt In Joy’s talented employees.

Meet Laura….and the pickins’ club

The projects they work on in this club are so darn cute. If I wasn’t already committed to a million things, I think this would be on my to-do’s.

They’re also working on a mystery quilt along with their monthly pattern pick. Kathy’s off to a great start with her 1st block.

Here’s a few of the projects. A cute wallet clutch, a basket for your desk, and aren’t those notebook covers adorable!

This month’s project is the Lazy Daisy bag. Laura made it out of the Bliss charm pack with some Michael Miller handles.

And Kathy is usingĀ  Max and Whiskers from Basic Grey.

Paige madeĀ  a pattern of the cute kitty in the fabric line for Kathy to applique on the front of the bag instead of the daisies.

Kathy, you’ve got to bring your bag into the shop when your done so I can get get pics. It’s gonna be seriously cute!

Have a great weekend y’all!
