Over the next few weeks, I am going to share several projects that I made for Christmas gifts. I couldn't share them before because it would have spoiled the surprise, but I can share them now!
These are for my sister. She is SERIOUSLY into CrossFit and working out and her favorite colors are lime and purple. She goes through phases where she gravitates to and uses one or a combination of colors to represent herself. She also loves rabbits and her buddies have given her a lot of fun nicknames in reference to a rabbit/bunny. Sounds strange, but it suits her.
So I chose these fabrics for her... the lime and purple... she even has CrossFit shoes in lime and purple... the grey to soften and compliment the bright colors... and the bunny as sort of a label for her.
I am crazy about these bunnies. I am so happy with how they turned out. She was surprised that I had made the bags for her and she loved them. They were a big hit!
I quilted them with straight lines, because I wanted them to be sporty. They are also a good size measuring at 9" by 6". Not too big and not too small.
I chose white zippers to compliment the quilting and the white bunnies. I also love how the zipper tabs turned out, which is probably the most stressful part of the whole process. I always get tense when it comes to sewing up the sides around the zipper tabs because I don't want them to get pinched or just messed up. Thankfully the whole process went smoothly.
After making a handful of bags for Christmas, I feel a great deal more confident when it comes to sewing in zippers.
I am excited that I finally get to share these with you. Zipper bags are so easy and fun to make and are great to give as gifts. The possibilities are endless. The problem is... I am going to run out of people to make them for. How many can I give to one person before it becomes too much?
