So I had bookmarked a design for a zippered bag made in the hoop. It has a lining and all seams are concealed. I finally bit the bullet and bought the design. Actually not a bad deal since it has the design for six sizes of hoops - from 4x4 through 8x14. It is from Digistitches http://www.digistitches.com/easy-zipper-bags-2-in-the-hoop.html
I want to make a few items for door prizes for my golf league and thought a small golf bag with our league name on it would be useful. So I added our name to the front and used golf fabric. Usually my first try at a pattern has issues but this bag came out perfect. The zipper is added in the hoop so no other sewing is needed. I made the 5x7 and it is a perfect size for some tees and a few ball markers plus a phone. Next I will try the 4x4 size for a change purse. I can see that this design will get a lot of use!
