Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You will need to know how to use your sewing machine, and how to sew oil-cloth (PVC coated) fabric on it.

Pattern Description:

I just love bags! and also love oil-cloth fabric. How cute would it be to have a mother/daughter shopping bag combo? This would go so well with That Shopping Bag! Or maybe you just need a small bag, great for a lunch bag maybe. The pencil case came about because it made sense to use the remaining fabric after making That Little Shopping Bag, great for pencils or maybe just a terrific zip closure pouch.
The patterns describes how to make That Little Shopping Bag and the pencil case. Because the pattern uses PVC coated fabric, the edges are not turned in as the fabric won't fray. Really, I don't know how I survived without these! They make terrific gifts also.

  • 1/3 yard oil-cloth (PVC coated) fabric

  • matching thread

You Will Also Need:

  • 12" zipper for pencil case
  • Sewing machine
  • general sewing supplies, scissors, pins etc
  • optional - Teflon foot for sewing machine to help the oil-cloth glide through
