Sew Simple with Rectangles & Squares Part One on The Best of Sewing With Nancy
Streamline the sewing process to make fun projects in no time at all.“I like to sew but I really don’t have the time.” Sound familiar? Nancy Zieman’s three-part series, Sew Simple with Rectangles & Squares, will change the way you think about projects and patterns. Everything Nancy demonstrates is simply cut from rectangles and squares!
The Travel Trio
During this first episode, learn how to create a weekender tote, cosmetic bag, and luggage saddlebag. This travel trio is made using comparable sewing steps, straight stitching, and double-sided quilted fabrics.
Even if you’ve never sewn before, you can stitch this bag!
After learning how to make a simple cosmetic bag, apply many of the same sewing steps to create a Weekender Tote. It’s a super-sized cosmetic bag with the addition of sturdy straps and double pockets.
Luggage Saddle Bag
For ease of travel, make a saddlebag for your carry-on luggage or rolling case. Two sizes of bags are attached with connector straps.
When not using this handy accessory on your luggage, zip the bags together and it’s a handy shoulder tote.
Sewing With Nancy Trivia—This photo was quickly taken on the Sewing With Nancy set. Notice the tape on the floor? Those were the positioning marks for Nancy’s chair in the Nancy’s Corner area. The chair had to be moved in order to take the photo. Now you see how we keep props and furniture in the right place!
