Pattern Description:

NEW METHOD UPDATE! Your going to love it!
I have made and sold a BUNCH of these colorful MACHINE WASH AND DRY bags but I knew there had to be a better way to join them!
So thru several prototypes I developed this new method that makes finishing this bag so much faster & easier!
NOW Full Circle is assembled, clipped and shredded while the 2 sections of the bag are laying FLAT. I've included LOTS of close-up photos, diagrams & templates (25+) to guide you in this tutorial!

The traditional method to make this style bag required you complete 2 bags separately (corners and all) then insert one into the others, pinning the devil out of it, then sew together by placing the bags over the free arm of the sewing machine and sewing together. BUT I'VE CHANGED ALL THAT!

First you build it and then you shred it! It's the perfect Stress and Stash buster for the fabric addicts out there!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 31 x 13.5


  • Quilter's ruler
  • 9 Contrasting Fat Quarters
  • 1 yard of woven cotton fabric for the lining
  • 1 yard of woven cotton fabric for the inner bag
  • 1 yard of 20" wide heavyweight fusible interfacing
  • small sharp scissors
  • A SHARP Seam ripper - Clover Premium 502 is inexpensive and very sharp
  • fabric scissors OR rotery cutter and mat
  • regular straight stitch sewing machine
  • a walking foot for your machine is preferred but you can make this bag without one.
  • rag quilt snips or 5" Fiskars Amplify RazorEdge Fabric Scissor (love)!

You Will Also Need:
