Divide and Conquer progress

Do you remember my small Divide and Conquer bag I made for the Island Batik challenge?  I'm sure I mentioned that I'm also making this in the large size.  It had to go on the back burner for a while so I could finish up a few other projects, but I had some time to work on it one day this week.

Disclaimer:  The products used to make this project were given to me by Island Batik and industry partners.

This is one of the side strips for the bag.  You can see the the beautiful Autumn Wings butterfly fabric here.

Here I'm sewing one of the side strips to the bag.  This pattern was my first experience sewing with clear vinyl.  The trickiest part for me was seeing what I was cutting when I cut the pieces out.  It's actually really easy to sew.  Sew with the vinyl against the machine bed for best results.

Binder clips are essential for sewing ByAnnie bag patterns.  Here I'm adding the binding that covers up the inside seams.

Clipping the second side strip to the inside of the bag in preparation for stitching.

And clipping the binding onto that section.  This is as far as I got during my sewing session. It's very close to finished.  I'm excited, but I was just too tired to complete my bag on that day.  Sometimes I just run out of energy.  Hopefully I can find another free sewing day to finish this up soon!

  1. It is a lot of of work! I just did a little wallet, and had to redo the zips. I think the instructions were not as great as they could have been - it used a leather and foam which made turning things on the corners darn hard. Annie's patterns are a little better I think.
