The Sublime Bag is a Sew Sweetness Pattern and the February Pattern for the Bag of the Month Club 2017. The Sublime features front diagonal zippers and unique accents on the front and back of the bag.
This year I joined again the Bag of The Month Club. In the Bag of The Month Club you buy a bundle of 6 surprise patterns and you’ll receive 6 patterns, one a month from January – June and It’s a surprise what the pattern is before you receive it!
Stabilizer: Foam underlayment (commonly used for floor installations)
Zipper: Nylon Metallic Zipper
This bag features two exterior zippered pockets. I printed the pattern at 85% and used nylon metallic zippers. These zippers are the best! they have the easy of nylon but the look of a metal zipper!
For the 85% size, the zipper was 14″ long.
I used my new Sailrite (This machine is a powerful beast!)
Instead of the recommended flex foam stabilizer, I used Foam underlayment, commonly used for floor installations. I like to use this product because is thinner, provides the same stability, and it doesn’t crease as the other flex foam products.
The zipper closure was not easy to install and I had to wrestle with the base! maybe it was the cork fabric.
I used Tex 60 Jean Tread and a 14 needle.
