There are no raw edges in the pattern so you can use cotton, cork or vinyl, provided your machine can manage it. There is a neat zipper panel closure on top and it has an adjustable cross-body strap. There’s no binding used in this pattern.

The orange plaid bag featured in the photos is a large size and the purple and grey is small. Both bags shown were made on a domestic sewing machine.

Materials required:

  • 34″ No.5 zipper tape & 3 zipper pulls
  • 2 x 1″ Rectangle rings
  • 1 x 1″ Strap slider
  • 15″ x 15″ Exterior fabric (for the base)
  • 1/2yd Feature fabric (44″ width)
  • 3/4 yd Lining fabric (44″ width)
  • 1 1/4yd Medium woven interfacing – SF101/Wovenfuse/G700 (35″ width)
  • 1/3yd Medium non-woven interfacing – Pellon Craftfuse (35″ width)
  • 1/2yd Sew-in foam – Bosal/Annie’s S&S/Style-Vil (28″ width)

Want to make it with the zip on just one side? Simply sew the top and main panel together on one of the sides with 1/4″ seam allowance and don’t fit the zip.
