Garment Bag FREE Sewing Tutorial

Be ready to travel handmade with a beautiful garment bag made by you! On the back, there is a large 24’’ x 14’’ pocket that’s perfect for items that won’t stay on a hanger. Besides the handles at the top and bottom that allow you to carry this bag like a suitcase, there is also a detachable shoulder strap.

What you'll need:

  • 2 1/4 yards cotton fabric for the exterior of the garment bag plus pocket, handles, and strap
  • 2 yards cotton fabric for the interior of the garment bag plus the pocket lining
  • 2 yards of foam stabilizer at least 60’’ wide such as ByAnnie Soft and Stable (may substitute quilt batting or fusible fleece, but the finished look will be softer)
  • 2 yards of Zipper By the Yard (or 2 YKK #4.5 handbag zippers – one 43’’ long and one 26’’ long)
  • 1 yard of medium weight fusible interfacing such as Pellon SF101
  • quilt basting spray such as SpraynBond or 505
  • 2 d-rings with a 1’’ opening
  • 2 swivel snap clips with a 1’’ opening
  • 1 tri-glide slide with a 1’’ opening
  • 1/2 yard fabric to make 4 yards of 2 1/4’’ wide bias binding
  • 48’’ of ribbon 7/8’’ wide for embellishment (optional)
  • Creative Grids Corner Ruler (optional, but awesome – I use it all the time)
  • Wonderclips
  • Sewing stiletto
