Sunday Finish: 80s Sew Together Bag

I'm enjoying the swap-culture on Instagram, for the most part, and I really had a great time making this Sew Together Bag for my partner. She said she specifically wanted one, and it worked out beautifully.

I chose bright colors for the inside of the bag because, well, everything about the 80s was pretty loud. And I'm totally crushing on that purple heart fabric. Did you doodle big puffy hearts on your folders too?

I've got one more little project to include with this - a Beastie Boys mug rug. I'm really excited about that part of it!

The stats (what I know!):
Pattern: Sew Together Bag
Outside fabric: Geekly Chic Cassettes by Amy Adams for Riley Blake (but you can also get it on Spoonflower)
Inside fabric: assorted stuff
Zippers: ZipIt on Etsy (she even has a listing for the Sew Together bundle - an 18-inch zipper and 3 9-inch zippers, all in a range of colors! I don't even bother going to Joann's for zippers anymore.)
Cassette Charm Zipper Pull: JulepTulip on Etsy

Checking this girl off the 2QFAL list.


  1. LOVE!!! I really must try one of these this summer. You've been rocking the sewing recently!!! Way to go!

  2. Awesome! And yep! I doodled hearts (and daisies) on my papers. :) I just bought the pattern and will be making one soon.

  3. fabulous! I love the fabrics you've used, perfect for the 80s, and that charm really finishes it off!

  4. Hello Jennie - wow what a great make! I've seen these bags, now I think I should make one for myself!
    I'm sure your partner will l-o-v-e it...
