U-Pick Sewing Project Success – my Beautiful Garment Bag

Update: the free tutorial is finished! Get it here.

I’m so excited to show you this garment bag that I sewed this week… I think it’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever made!

In case you are just joining in – each month I readers vote on a project for a new sewing tutorial (or pattern). This month the winning project was a garment bag.

I started by quilting some large pieces of fabric and foam stabilizer together. This gorgeous print is Anna Maria Horner’s newest quilt backing fabric Honorable Mention (Large) – it’s 108’’ wide. I bought 2 yards and used some of it for the back of a quilt. I had enough leftover for this entire garment bag!

The front of the bag has a nice long zipper (I used ByAnnie’s Zipper by the Yard) and I bound all the edges with easy DIY Bias Binding that I made myself.

You gave me so many awesome suggestions for this project – like a tie to secure the tops of the hangers and keep them from slipping down inside the bag.

And a nice large pocket on the back!

I found some lovely Anna Maria Horner ribbon (from Renaissance Ribbons) in my stash and I decided to use it for embellishing the top of the pocket and the handles. It’s sooo old that they don’t make it anymore, but it’s perfect for this!

I’ll write up a tutorial for the Beautiful DIY Garment Bag soon as I can. Sign up for my free newsletter so you don’t miss it!

Happy Sewing,
