I recently made a Sew Together Bag, pattern by SewDemented. Now we’re adding the side panels.
This is the part of the pattern that has the most photos, It’s still the most difficult part.
So here you need to put the zipper heads into the middle of the pockets to keep them out of the way of your machine needle, so you don’t accidentally hit it and break the needle and ruin the zipper.
So then you’re going to want to match up the folds on your side pieces to the pockets. You’ll stitch through the side, pocket, and side again, to make an accordion shape.
Next you are going to put the lining with the pockets to the exterior. You’ll want to trim it to fit, then pin it together.
Next time we’ll add binding and the outside zipper…
