  • Let's make the zippered pocket! Take one main lining panel and your interfaced zipper pocket piece and place the pocket piece right side down on the right side of the main lining panel, with short edge of pocket piece 1/2" from bottom edge of main panel for small bag, and 2" from bottom edge of main panel for large bag, pin in place. On the wrong side of the zipper panel, draw a box that is about 6" by 1/2" (the length will be determined by your zipper size). The box should be centred side to side, and approximately 6" from the bottom of the zipper panel for the small bag and 6.5" from the bottom of the zipper panel for the large bag.

  • A big hello from Reece at Happy Okapi! I'm so excited Samantha has asked me over for this Sew-Along.  If you've joined me in a Sew-Along before, you're probably familiar with my organization style, but I'll lay it anyway for everyone.
    • Day 1 (that's today!) I like to do all the prep work, including fabric selection, gathering of supplies, cutting, and fusing/basting.
    • Day 2 Here is where I prefer to get all the fussy work out of the way, like pockets, piping, and zippers if possible. 
    • Day 3 Final assembly!! We take all our pieces and put them together to make our gorgeous bags!! (The extra exclamation marks are because this is my favourite part, and I get soooo excited about it)

  • Okie doke lovelies, it's time to finish those Nappy bags up and get using them!

    If you've chosen to add feet then you'll want to cut a piece of bag base 4.5" x 13.5" (11cm x 35cm), centre it over the base of the bag and mark where the holes you've previously made are. Then cut out the cross in the plastic base.
