They Make Wonderful Gifts, Too!

Simple patchwork goes together quickly into these handy zipper bags. They are so quick and easy to make that you can have one done in an afternoon.

Imagine all the ways you can use these bags. They are perfect for taking small projects with you, will protect your e-reader or tablet, and are lovely for storing cosmetics and more.

Plus, the bags look great in just about any color combination. And, the patchwork can be adapted in many ways. Make stripes instead of squares, include a larger square for some applique, or even include a mini quilt block.

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!
