September Embroidery Club

Easy Zip Cases

I know we have done cases similar to this, but I was so taken with these cases I just couldn’t help myself. The cases are not only done entirely in the hoop, but they are fully lined and there are no raw seams! The hardest decision I had to make was my fabric choice.

Classes will be held at Amelia’s Fabric and Yarn Shop on Tuesday, September 18 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm or Thursday, September 20 from 5:30 to 8:30. Call today to sign up!

Supplies need for the class: (for one 5 x 7 bag)
· Embroidery machine and unit with cords
· Design loaded in your machine or on a flash (USB) stick
· Printouts of your instructions
· 5 x 7 embroidery hoop
· One fat quarter each of 2 fabrics; 1 for the outside and 1 for the lining and bow
· 2 pieces of felt; 1 piece 5” x 8”; 1 piece 7” x 9”
· 1 9” or longer polyester zipper
· 1 hooping of a light or medium tear away stabilizer
· 1 piece of Steam a Seam or Heat and Bond light that measures ½” x 4”
· Thread for the design (I used a single color for the entire project)
· Bobbin loaded with a bobbin weight thread
· Tweezers
· Blue painters tape
· Fabric cutting scissors
· Temporary spray adhesive
· Pins

The picture shows three sizes of the Easy Zip Cases (pictured from left to right – 6 x 9, 5 x 7, and 4x4). We will be doing the 5” x 7” size in class, and if you want you may have time to finish two cases in class. Just remember to double your supplies.

 Here is the link for the design I used:
Please remember to purchase your design direct from the designer PRIOR to class and have loaded on your machine.

Hope to see you in class at Amelia's Fabric and Yarn Shoppe for a jumpstart on making some great gifts for the holiday season!
