Project Ninety Four: Playing Around with Ruffles and Pleats and Gathers
I’ve been experimenting a little lately, with my fabric, to give me bags a little more character, and have made a few pleated zip up bags successfully like the one in the picture with the red spotty fabric strip across the middle. I’m really pleased with how this turned out actually, and it was surprisingly simple to make. It’s nice to have a new design for little zip up pouches, as I am getting a little bored of making my standard prism pouch! I also tried gathering a long strip of fabric up and stitching it to the front of a simple lined zip up pouch. The gathering was actually quite time consuming, probably because I am doing it all wrong and professionals have an easy simple way of gathering fabric strips like this! 🙂
I am going to make some of the pleated pouches for my stall I think.
