KSU Wildcat 2 Zip Hipster

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I'm most proud that I sewed in not one, but two zippers! It was so easy! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I had undivided time to make this and from start to finish, it took about 2.5 hours. This bag looks like it would be hard to make but it's actually very easy thanks to Erin's explicit instructions and great photos! The cutting of the fabric was SO easy! I never used my scissors - just my rotary cutter, mat, and two of my cutting rulers/templates. I didn't even have to pin the paper to the fabric! Each piece is a sqare or rectangle and Erin has the dimensions of each one on the pattern pieces. So you can either use the pattern as a template (I used paper and my rulers) or just cut to the listed dimensions!

What you will need

  • I used some licensed Kansas State University Wildcat logo fabric
  • a white coordinating fabric
  • two zippers
  • two purse hardware items (rectangle & adjustable slider)
  • and two types of interfacing.

wow finally a bag I can use with good separate compartments.I usually find it hard to find my keys,mobile phone, etc.
JulieKSU91 answered:
I've been using this for about a month now and I love it. I'm going to make a more "formal" one, too. I love the zippered pocket in the front for things like receipts, the open pocket to stick my keys in or a small magazine, and the inside pocket (I added a pen holder) to keep things handy. I really love this bag!
