Bag it a Dozen Ways

Quilted Bag

With this online bonus, we expand our series of quick and fun bags to a baker's dozen! This little zippered number, featuring a favorite outline quilting motif, is perfect for toting floss, toilietries or jewelry.

You'll find the basic bag pattern and general instructions in CME's November/December 2006 issue (click here to order this issue).


Showcase outline quilting motifs on the side or all over. Back the bag body with lightweight batting using temporary spray adhesive to hold the layers together. Or, opt for fusible batting and add the bag lining as the backing to the "quilt sandwich."

No stabilizer is needed when batting is used. The underside of the embroidery will show inside the bag, so use a coordinating thread color in the bobbin.

Hoop and embroider the quilt motif and trim the threads. Construct the bag according to the “General instructions,” finishing the seams with serging or zigzagging. For a more elegant finish, bind the seams.


Quilted bag: Husqvarna Viking, Disk #3, design 24
