Happy Monday everyone. After much tearing out of hair with changes to my computer and phone making it impossible to post pictures I think I may now have glitches on the run.
So here are the images that I hope will help my Bionic baggers
I started with a pack of sample fabric from Kisco. They are all slightly wider than the pattern calls for by about 1/2 an inch but as they were all the same so I went for it.
I labelled each piece on a piece of masking tape with an arrow for the direction and the letter of the pieces. These are B to F.
They are all backed with light weight interfacing.
I sewed in a zip between pieces A and B then a zip between B and C repeating to F making sure the fabrics all lined up parallel, even if the zips stuck out a bit. I made sure the head or moveable bit of the zip was either to the right or to the left each time, not some on the right and some on the left.
Looking at the back of my pieces you may be able to see that all the zip heads are on the left.
I used the width of my zip foot as a seam guide.
Still looking at the back you can see a pocket lining being pinned in, right side of the lining piece face down. The zip becomes sandwiched between the outer and the lining.
I will sew along the same seam line as before.
Press the seams away from the zip teeth.
Here you can see I have sewn in the other side of the pocket lining in exactly the same way.
Turn through, press and top stitch along seamed edges.
I made a quilt sandwich from the outer fabric, a layer of batting and a backing of firmer than standard quilting cotton. I simply did cross hatched quilting at 1 inch and found it gave a suitably firm foundation for a successful result.
I think that is enough for now, See you on Saturday
Till next time.
