Pattern Description:

This is a quick and easy bag with a unique shape, recessed zippered top and two pockets inside. The most difficult part of this is the zipper, but hopefully my instructions are confusion-free. You can use a zipper foot for the zipper, but I usually just use my regular foot unless the zipper is gigantic. A great project for the beginning bag maker!

YOU MAY sell anything you make with this pattern.

  • 14" wide at top
  • 11" wide at bottom

I'm a graphic designer by trade and fell in love with sewing many years ago. I think it was a natural path for me to mesh the two and start drafting my own patterns. There's nothing I like sewing together more than bags! www.swoonpatterns.com
