upgraded baggies - version 2.1

Remember fabric baggie version 2.0 (the red one on the right)?

Pretty neat, isn't it? Not neat enough! Today after an eye-opening photography lesson from the kind and talented photographer Hilla Lutsky, I created fabric baggie version 2.1:

fabric baggie version 2.1

What's new in version 2.1

  • Installed an eyelet at the top so the bag can be hung on a small hook rather than held with a clip (eyelets are cool! This was my first one!)
  •  Moved the zipper up one inch towards the top of the bag (need to move it down 1/2 inch - or should I leave it where it is?)
  • Made the "box seam" at the bottom a bit smaller so the bag has a less-pronounced trapezoid shape
  • Used a different fabric - next time I'll use a sturdier fabric despite the interfacing (or a sturdier interfacing for such stretchy fabric)
eyelet - prettier side
eyelet - less pretty side (oops, I sewed the tab the other way around!)
Looking good! Here's hoping the forthcoming version 2.2 will be our successful prototype. Then the mass production will begin and I'll whip up a tutorial for y'all.

And, yes - expect better photos by me from now on :-)

I have never tried to make a bag with an eyelet before. I would love to try it but will have to get the tool first. I think your new version looks GREAT. But is there any reason that you would like to move the zipper up or down? Just curious. :)

The lower the zipper, the less usable space in the bag. I wouldn't go any lower. The eyelet is a great idea. I think this will work better than hanging ideas in previous versions.

I get a lot out of following the development of your ideas. I think it's great that you show us how your ideas evolve. You are very logical and organised in your thought process. The version numbers make it easy for us (the reader) to keep track.

I agree with Pam..I have learned a lot from reading your blog, Keren.

I have learned a lot from reading Pam's too! Pam always gives great comments and suggestions :)

I am so lucky to have gotten to know both of you!
