Lazy Girl | Blog » Simple Sewing Alterations You Can Make On Any Bag Project Lazies, Tracy Chapman, owner of Sew Thankful, had a great time creating this Miranda Day Bag for herself. Tracy made two versatile alterations to her Miranda that I want to share with you today. Miranda Day Bag pattern from Lazy Girl Designs (LGD123). Alteration: Applique Instead of Piecing After The Fact The first alteration Tracy made was the vertical black strip at the center of the bag in the picture above. Tracy simply appliqued strips of fabric over the vertical seams on the center of the front and back covers of the bag. Applique doesn’t always have to mean adding a flower or other design. Benefit: Don’t Unsew, Re-do, or Start Over The beauty of this alteration is that Tracy added these strips after all the piecing and quilting was done. Adding strips on top of the already sewn cover allowed Tracy to customize her project and move forward without losing any of the work she had already done. Inside view of Tracy’s Miranda Day Bag. Here’s a peak at the interior of Tracy’s Miranda.
