Have you had time to try the skinny insert strip technique yet? It will take a couple of times to get the hang of it but it has so much potential in your original design projects. Always remember to make the color high contrast so it will show since you are going to all of that work.
On our “sew day” Barbara decided to make her bag twice as large and just purchased a longer zipper. Look how the yellow insert shows up on her bag. Barbara’s bag is designed with larger rectangles and two lines of detail piecing. I really like the top-stitching that she did with the orange thread before the bag was stitched together. These are the small touches that you can use to personalize the projects that you make.
Have fun with the bag project!
