Sweet Treats for Your Sweetie - ITH Zipper Bag

I saw a little quick video on Facebook the other day where a candy wrapper was turned into a small zip bag and thought it would be fun to do with an in-the-hoop (ITH) project.

The original inspiration project used King Size candy bar wrappers, covered them with strips of clear packing tape, and then stitched the panels to create a lined zipper pouch. Definitely not a haute couture handbag but the fun factor made up for that.

A plain design can often provide more opportunities for creativity than a more decorative version. Really?

For one thing, you don’t have to worry about any included embroidery design(s) competing with the fabric—or clashing with your ideas. With in-the-hoop designs, you're choosing your own fabrics so why not choose the designs and other elements that make your project "you?"

For that reason, I created a collection of basic in-the-hoop bags that max out popular hoop sizes from 130 x 180mm (5x7”) on up to the newest humongous hoops on the latest Brother and Baby Lock models. And there are some sizes in between.

After I posted the Snappy Glasses Cases, I was bombarded with requests for a version that would fit in a 5x7” hoop so here’s a new bevy of bags. Although they may look different, they’re all done from just one design!

Obviously you can change them up by using different fabrics, but a savvy embroiderer can skip color changes or repeat color changes to achieve a different effect.

13 Tips for a Better In-the-Hoop Bag Project

Vending at different sewing and craft shows gives me the opportunity to see what's going on in my industry.

Otherwise, as solo-preneur working from home, I pretty much have my nose to the grindstone making new products, maintaining my website, writing new blog posts, creating new YouTube videos, managing my social media, and all the other things that go along with running a business that I can be pretty oblivious to what's happening "out there.

In-the-Hoop Sewing Organizer

In-the-Hoop Sewing Organizer

To make an organizer fully in the hoop with as few hoopings as possible does require a large sewing field and this one needs a full 200mm x 300mm one. It is not split for smaller machines and I don't recommend shrinking it.
