FQS Simple Zipper Bag

I thought things would slow down after quilt market...not so, ha ha. Luckily, I allowed myself a little break yesterday to whip up this totally sweet Simple Zipper Bag by Sherri McConnell for Fat Quarter Shop. Check out the full video here
This was quick and easy to make--I literally made it last night after I put the kids in bed! I used fabric from my new line, Olive's Flower Market (shipping to shops in November).
