When I recently saw the gorgeous prints of the new Bloom and Grow line by Simple Simon and Co. from Riley Blake, I knew those pretty designs needed to be turned into a fun bag as soon as possible! I wanted a bag pattern that would showcase the large florals and the By Annie Zip It Up case pattern definitely fit the bill. Plus, the By Annie patterns are so well constructed that I knew I’d end up with a high quality piece that played well with the different Bloom and Grow prints.
The main floral print in navy was a perfect choice for the outside of the case, and after falling in love with the tiny white floral print, I knew it had to be used on the inside of the case. I adjusted the pattern slightly to include two vinyl pockets on the inside (the pattern calls for one vinyl and one mesh pocket) and loved choosing zipper colors to match the Bloom and Grow fabric.
The Zip It Up pattern has two size options and to fully feature the large floral print, I made the larger size. I love that the large size can easily fit a notebook inside the pockets (I’m always wanting paper to write down ideas or notes) and the case would be a great gift for a sewer, quilter, or creative child.
I was only able to feature three prints from the Bloom and Grow line in my Zip It Up case, but wanted to include a photo of the whole line because I just loved the saturated burgundy color, too! You can find Bloom and Grow in quilt shops now, and the Zip It Up pattern is available on the By Annie website or Amazon.
