A “Special Ingredient” Makes It Snap Open and Closed!
This cute little bag has a special feature that’s not apparent at first glance. Pull the triangular tabs and it snaps open. A little pressure and it snaps shut. That makes this clever bag useful for so many things.
Pieces of a metal measuring tape from the hardware store provide the snap action. Once you have those the bag is very easy to construct.
Plus, it can be made in many sizes. Once you see how it goes together you can easily size it up or down.
You also can quilt the layers together or leave them plain, and choose a box bottom so the bag will stand up or leave it flat. Give the bag whatever personality you want through fabric choices.
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!
