Zipper Box Bag Using Prequilted Fabric

Zipper Box Bag Using Prequilted Fabric


Prequilted Fabric  (Quilt sandwich)

Zipper  12" 

Rotary cutting wheel

Cutting Mat

Lets Start!!!

Cut out the 2  6"x10" designs (Their actual size is about 5.5" x 9.5")
Turn over 1/2 inch of fabric along the long edge of each piece to the wrong side. Press.   Place zipper along this edge. Pin in place. Sew the zipper in making a 1/4" seam.

Sew in the other piece the same way.

Fold the pieces together, right sides facing. Stitch along the long edge 1/4" seam.
Press the seam open
Open the zip into the middle of the bag. Do this before continuing.
Stitch the two short ends closed 1/4" seam.

Trim away any excess zip. Now open the short seam as shown in the photos below. Wrong side facing out. You may need to open the zipper further for this.

Using a ruler, measure an inch from the point. Pin in place and mark measurement. Sew along marking. Using pinking shears, cut away the corner leaving a 1/4" seam.
Do this with the other corners.  When done, turn right side out.
And that's it. Your Zippered Box Bag is ready to be used.
