They Make Wonderful Gifts Too!

These well-designed bags are easy to make and very handy. Choose between several sizes for quilting supplies, makeup, tech gear, and much more.

They can be made with or without quilted fabric. You can also add optional iron-on vinyl laminate to make the insides easy to wipe clean.

Double-slide zippers and handy grab tabs make the bags easy to open wide and attached side panels prevent contents from falling out. Optional straps with swivel hooks can also be added. When empty, the bags nest inside one another to save space.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
