The Kelzjon is a quick and quirky circle bag that has a variety of uses. There's the option to add a crossbody strap so you can use it as a handbag, but it's most popular use is as a crafting/knitting bag and for storage around the house. It's a great pattern for beginners to help you learn curves and try out piping. Sewing the circular base is much easier and more fun than you expect!

It features two exterior zip pockets and an interior zipper pocket. It's a great opportunity to show off those unique zipper pulls you've been hoarding. The pattern gives you the option to use a variety of stabilisers, depending on the style you prefer. My personal favourite is foam but I've made them with fleece and Decovil light too.

Finished size: 8 1/2" tall x 7" wide x 7" deep.

Skill level: Brave Beginner

    Kelzjon Bag

    I love the look of this bag! I’m almost finished. The video tutorial saved me many times as I followed along with the written directions. I only gave it a 4 star rating because of it’s size, as I thought it would be large enough to hold my knitting project.
