Pattern Details

This is a follow up to my professional zip around wallet pattern. There are 2 sizes included in this one. The checkbook size fills the many requests I get for a zip around that fits the larger phones. The tablet clutch size is for those of us who like to carry our reading glasses and our Kindle with us. It is also for my friends who take the iPad mini everywhere. If you have already made my zip around wallet, you will breeze through this pattern. These larger bags are a little easier to make than the small one. The reading glasses case is a new one I designed specifically to go into the front pocket of the tablet clutch. The pattern for it is also included.

Like so many sewists I know, I have been sewing since the age of 6. I started at my mother's feet, fashioning her scraps into doll clothes. By age 16, I was spending Summers sewing my wardrobe for the coming school year. I was known as a creative dresser. I wrote my first sewing pattern in 2006 as part of applying for a patent. Now I have thousands of satisfied sewing pattern customers and am very happy to be part of the bourgeoning online sewing community.
