Maybe I am stupid, but I have found this pattern NOT EASY to follow. I'be been working on one for a day and a half. It is near to going on the trash. It needs to be clear when you are going ALL THE WAY AROUND, or just the bottom seams (joining the top and lining after installing the zipper)...sorry a photo just doesn't cut it. There are more examples of this, but I am tired of fighting this bag.....sigh.

Second time through went MUCH better. Perhaps it was my preconceived expectations on it, as I have made these before, but in a different manner. Thank you for the offer of a refund and the quick reply. I appreciate it. I will hang on to the pattern now :-)

Hi Ellen,

Yes, I do sell a hard copy of this pattern and I do sell them wholesale if you purchase 6 or more at a time. I charge $5.50 per pattern + $5 shipping.

If you would like to order some just email me here: ticklegrassdesigns@gmail.com
Let me know how many and where to send them. Since you would be ordering as a business I just send an invoice with your order that's due upon receipt or I can also do payment over the phone if that works better for you.

I teach this class at my local quilt shop and it it always full. People love this bag!

Let me know if you have more questions. I'm happy to help!

Been making these for the past couple months for many people. Just figured out recently we read the instructions wrong and have been constructing our boxies incorrectly from the beginning (oops). Always wondered why our corners didn't seem so easy to put together to sew them. Didn't really matter too much everyone still loves them and they work just as well. First zipper thing I ever did. And the most requested thing I have people asking for. "makeup bag"

Good question. :)
The way the box bag is made you must have the zipper a bit bigger than the length of the bag to make the assembly process work. You do trim the excess zipper which is why you need a nylon zipper.
I buy all my zippers at quilt shops and they only sell 14" zippers. They cost around $1.30 each. The zippers that you find at the big fabric/craft stores cost double that for a smaller size and are not as good a quality.
Yes, you can buy different sized zippers if you would like. A 14" zipper is what you need for the large bag. For the medium bag dont go smaller than a 12" and for the small bag use a 9". But, it does make sewing the smaller bags less cumbersome when you use the larger zipper.
I appreciate your question and hope this helped. Let me know if you have other questions.
Thanks!
Natalie :)

Why would you need 4 14 inch zippers for bags that are only 9 inches to 5 inches long?

I adore the fabric on these sweet bags. I can't wait to either get my sewing machine fixed (right) or get a new one (that's the right answer!!) so I can start back with sewing again. These bags are a real inspiration to get started again!! Lovely!!

This pattern is great! I took a class with Natalie she is awesome, and makes it very simple and fun. The pattern includes pictures which really helps.
