Island Batik Ambassador's It's in the Bag Blog Hop

I'm excited to share my newest Island Batik Ambassador Blog Hop project!  It's called the Flipped Out Bag and it's a pattern from By Annie.com.




By Annie was amazing in sending the ambassadors the pattern, stabilizer, and all the accessories we would need for our bags!  Thank you so much!  I chose the Flipping Out bag because it looked like a great way to store some of the supplies on my sewing desk and an easy way to take them with me when I go out and about with my sewing machine....or when I will again.  I made the large size so it would fit my tall tools.

All By Annie patterns have these fabulous little labels you copy and cut out and then use to label all your pieces.  They were certainly helpful in knowing which piece was which!


The pattern also had me premake the little binding rings.  What a good idea when the binding is so small.  There were videos to go along with my bag called Add-On Videos that were well worth it!  Since this was my very first By Annie bag it was really nice to be able to see some of the steps I wasn't quite sure about.  I highly recommend the videos.  When you purchase your pattern a coupon is included for you to log into the By Annie website and get the video for free.  It was really easy to do.


Here's my bag all zipped up!  This fabric is from Island Batik's new Buttercup collection.  It's a range of soft blues and yellows and I'll show you more next month!


All done!  It will hold my spray bottle and magic wand when it closes too!  It's just what I wanted and it already sits on my sewing table.

Be sure to check in with all the other Island Batik Ambassador's as the blog hop continues!

I hope you get to quilt today!

  4. That flipping out pattern is interesting. The pandemic has made me look at more zoom connections and more ordering online than I have done before.

  12. Love this! I have a Sew Together bag but it's not big enough for taller stuff, like the spray bottle. I just might have to do one of these!

  18. I have looked at these bags before but I never realized Annie's patterns were so good as you explained to us. I will definitely reconsider making this bag. I know it comes in 3 sizes. Thank you for your explanation! Blue+ yellow are my favorite color combo. I would love to win this.

  25. The pandemic has affected my quilting life in I'm using more scraps, less shopping. Also I never thought I'd be Zooming so much in my life. So grateful for my guild, LQS, and TAS groups for figuring out how to do Zoom meetings & classes!

  34. I am sewing more during this pandemic, including making more bags. I love these batik fabrics. I've been a fan of Hoffman for years and now need to add these Island ones to my next purchase order. This inside out bag is stunning and so clever. It's one of the more interesting bags I've ever seen. I love that it looks like a pencil case that stands up, then can be zipped to go. Brilliant!! Thanks so much for sharing.

  35. That looks like a really fun and useful bag!
    The pandemic has given me more time to see but I find it more of a challenge getting supplies. There are some things you just can't buy online.

  36. This Flipping Out bag is a very unique idea! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Your bag is beautiful, and I'm surprised by how much it holds! It's so easy to see and find everything too. This is perfect for sewing supplies, or many other things!

    ReplyDelete
  38. What a great bag. Thanks for the details. They definitely make it seem less intimidating.

  39. During the pandemic I have been using what I have. I sure miss having people with like interests to talk to in person.

  40. Hello Suzy. Your bag/organizer is super cute! It sure looks handy. Have a fabulous day.

  41. I lost my sew-jo when this mess all started. It's starting to come back, finally.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have had much more time to make quilted pieces!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Like someone else said, I was surprised by the amount it could hold. It is a cute way to handle the things we like to have by the sewing machine, keeping the area neat and the tools close by. I have spent the time making masks for neighbors, friends, and family, but I think I have run out of steam. I need to finish a few more masks, and then I want to put the blocks together for the quilt I am making for the Youth Detention Center. Nancy A: SewingGranda@gmail.com

  44. The only difference is I am outside in our garden much more and loving the summer months. When not outside I am in my sewing room more.

  45. What a sweet bag with beautiful fabric. Since the pandemic began I have been quilting so much more. The only thing that is different was ordering fabric online instead of fondling fabrics in store. I also wound up working with my stash a lot more.

  46. Neat-O bag. Very useful. The pandemic has made me not be able to focus. I want to focus & sew & quilt. This year has flew by. Hopefully I can get fabric soon & focus to sew & quilt with it. I really hope so. Pray for me to be able to focus please. angielovesgary2 atgmail dotcom 🌻

  53. The pandemic has me using more of my stash and stocking up on battings and essentials in advance of the dreaded "wave 2". Enjoying the outdoors as much I can while the summer is here - indoor quilting will happen soon though!
