Join me today as I show how to make a vinyl zipper bag. The large vinyl window on the front is perfect for seeing what project you have inside. The edges are all self binding, so no separate binding is needed. Grab your fabrics, a zipper, some interfacing, and the PDF and you are ready to make your own vinyl project bag!
So, what sets this vinyl project bag apart? It’s the self binding edges. This means the back fabric wraps around to the front for a nice bound edge instead of needing to use a separate bias binding. I’ve also added a fusible fleece between the back layers. This offers extra structure and the opportunity to sew some quilting lines.
I say cross stitch bag because that’s what I use my bags for, but feel free to use the bags for any use you have.

I was scrolling through Instagram a while back and saw a zipper bag that had a curved top and what I thought to be a curved front pocket. I realized later it was not actually a front pocket, but was... Continue reading →
Last week I mentioned dreaming up a unique zipper bag while laying in bed too sick to sew. As soon as I felt better I tested out my project idea and it turned out EXACTLY how I wanted! The bag... Continue reading →
Last week I got sick…Bleh! It was the kind of sick that leaves you with 0 energy. I spent 2 days straight in bed, exhausted and coughing. While I was in bed I had plenty of time to think about... Continue reading →
When it comes to homeschooling we have a LOT of items that need to be organized. Buttons, beads, magnetic letters, game pieces and much more! A few months ago I started making “cheater” zipper bags to hold everything. I call... Continue reading →
