That Flat Bag

from GourmetQuilter.com

That Flat Bag

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should already know how to use your sewing machine and have the foot required for sewing a zipper

Pattern Description:

The pattern describes how to quilt the three layers and insert the zipper. With all the different fabrics around, these Flat Bags could be made to suit all kinds of occasions, maybe a Map Bag for the car? Great for gifts.
