Who doesn’t love a pretty bag to store notions and other crafty essentials.  Bonus if it’s got a zipper and a pocket to store treats!

The Goody Goody Binding Kit definitely checks all those boxes.  Vanessa Goertzen of Lella Boutique designed this bag and she has a free tutorial for it on her blog.

Her trick for zipper installation worked like a charm.  Who knew that good old Elmer’s school glue would make installing the zipper such a breeze!  So much better than using pins and having your fabric pieces shift while sewing.

I did have some shifting but nothing that can’t be concealed within the outer seams 😉

My Goody Goody is in progress and I love all the little details and different fabrics that you can use.  The possibilities are endless.

The front is quilted with straight lines, 1/2 inch apart.  Gotta love that walking foot!

Vanessa designed this binding kit to keep all of your quilt binding essentials in one place. However, I think it would work perfectly for a variety of craft related notions… hexie making stuff, knitting bits and bobs, travel organizer!

    I’ve never used glue to install zippers, maybe I’ll have to try it! Of course…I’ve only ever installed FOUR zippers ever…so, I could definitely use the help! 😉
