Below is a picture of some of the zippered bags I made from fabric used beside or below another quilt being quilted in the longarm. Smaller scraps also serve to let me test my tension during the quilting process when I change a bobbin or thread. I can use these bags as gifts or donate them to our Quilt Show Boutique to be sold as fundraisers for our guild. Bonus projects......they are a good thing!
Two or three years ago I bought a "lot" of zippers on ebay for I think $10. Now I have zippers of all sizes and colors so I have infinate possibilities when I make "bonus projects". Need zippers......check ebay for a "lot" which usually have many zippers in various sizes and colors. You too can have a stash to use for these bonus projects.
Hope you are able to find some "bonus projects" in your quilting world today.
