Bendy Bits Tutorial

If you already own the Bendy Bag pattern item LGD134 from Lazy Girl Designs, here’s a project to make a little zip pouch from the leftover triangle cutouts from Bendy.

Use the same instructions in the Bendy pattern to install the zip, and finish the seams. Zip grab tab is different as noted below.

– Stack and center all bits on mat, cut 5″ x 6″ rectangle from all pieces (6″ at long edge).
– Install zip as you do in Bendy, no casing needed.
– Zip grab tab: Cut a 3″ piece from extra zip length, use one side, offset ends and baste at side.
– Open zip, leaving 1″ zipped.
– Fold project cover sides together, stitch all edges.
– Trim and zigzag seam allowances as in Bendy
– Turn right sides out – the 1″ zipped will allow you to fully push out the ‘corner’ at the closed end of the zip – be patient with it and use a tool.
– Press properly!
