I am trying to find a good garment pattern ... and love this with the flap top where may I ask did you get it or was it a tutorial?

Hi Letssew, The original idea came from Mary Mulari's book Travel Gear and Gifts To Make. My bag is cut 43" x 24". I used 2-20" zippers, sewn together at the top zipper stops. The opening for the hangers is 3" on the front and the back the zip was sewn RST -turned to right side and top stitched with a decorative stitch. .I added zip stays 2" x 9" raw edges folded in- top stitched over the ends of the finished zip. I traced the hanger shape for the angles I finished the bottom of the flap by turning and stitching-, serged the edges of the backs and fronts together leaving the opening on the top - and bottom for the hangers,-I turned the opening edge 1/4 inch and stitched. I couldn't find a zipper the right size so i used two and it worked .
