I spent time going through all of the upholstery fabric swatches I got, rolled them up and displayed them in a basket...well actually 2 baskets. I found these cute baskets at JoAnn's for 70% off. How could I leave them? I knew I had a use for them. I just didn't know exactly what at the time.
I have so many swatches that I pulled 3 that I liked and decided to make more Zip and Go Bags from a pattern by Erin at Dog Under My Desk. The swatches are big enough for the front of the bag. I used a faux leather on the back and the adjustible straps.
Here is the first one.
I used a black and white polka dot for the interior.
I used a checkerboard fabric for the second one.
I used an orange for the interior.
The last one is some selfish sewing I did for me. My last few bags have been red. Unfortunately, they weren't for me. So this red zip and go is mine. I love this bag for quick trips. It holds just enough.
This is what the back of all 3 bags looks like.
I am getting ready for The Main Street Festival next month. The first 2 bags will go there.
