The Crutch Bag Project – Sewing Up the Side Panels

I left off yesterday with the side panel pattern made and selecting a coordinate fabric.

Next, I layer up another quilt sandwich just like I did for the Front and Back.Pin the sandwich in place and then free motion quilt it together.This quilting thing is getting easier!  Next, I cut out the two side panel pieces.And sew one side together.  I am sewing these wrong sides together.  My thought is to either bind the edges with a bias strip or I could try a French seam if that didn’t work out.  Still thinking…So tomorrow I’ll work out the seam finish.  I’ll probably go with binding but do it by machine.  I also need to figure out a placement for the straps that will hold the bag to the crutch.

Stay tuned!
