One of the things I love about being a blogger is that I have an excuse to sew more often. I love working with my sewing machine. Not only are these little zipper bags adorable, they are fun and easy to make. This bag is literally 7 seams! I made them today as in inspiration for zipper bags that kids might use to hold their school supplies. The oilcloth is a perfect material for little hands as they are easy to wipe clean. And who doesn’t love to have something monogrammed? I am including a template for the alphabet of the letters I used in the contrasting oilcloth. My daughter is no longer in school, so I am imagining using these bags for either my own art supplies or for little travel bags. Below you can see my step-by-step tutorial for this project. If you have any questions, shoot me a note. You can make your bags any size you like, just use the full width of the zipper including the fabric ends as your starting point. Enjoy! ~ Lia
