They’re Easy to Make and Are Great Gifts!
These handy patchwork bags are simple to make and a terrific use of scraps. Choose between two sizes and two piecing styles in any color theme.
They’re great for pencils and makeup as well as wonder clips and other supplies. They also make great gifts.
The zippers are easy to install making these bags great for quilters of all skill levels. You’ll find a video here that shows how to insert a zipper in a similar bag.
The designer, Sherri McConnell from A Quilting Life, prefers ByAnnie Handbag Zippers because they’re a bit wider and easy to work with. She also suggests ByAnnie Soft and Stable to give the bags body.
Once completed, the bags are roughly the following sizes:
- Large Bag – about 7” x 9”
- Small Bag – about 5” x 9”
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!
