Quilt as you go bag

Free sewing pattern for this cute quilt as you go zipper pouch.  I've made a ton of these and they are a big hit with everyone I give them to.

I know that a lot of people who enjoy sewing bags also enjoy other aspects of sewing, and especially quilting. Even if you don’t and have never made a quilt, you can still enjoy sewing this bag using the quilt-as-you-go method (QAYG) to make these pretty panels.

A Zipper pouch comes in so handy…especially during the summer time. I find myself in the car a lot. Having this little pouch around, I can stuff it with a sewing project, a snack, or whatever. A quick grab and go pouch.

With this pouch, I thought I would try something new. By the time you are finished with the quilting and piecing, the back is finished at the same time. I love that! It saves a lot of time and I am all for time savers. Using this method, the inside or lining of the bag has a quilted look.

Materials Needed:

  • Batting– 9″ x 15″ & 7″ X 4″
  • Lining- 9″ X 15″ & 7″ X 4″
  • Fabric– can be scraps, strips, or chunky sizes
  • 9″ zipper
  • Bias Binding– 2 1/2″ X 66″
