Look What I Made: Handy Zippered Bags

Oh, how I love a quick project! Why don’t I do them more often? Oh that’s right, because I’m always working on some epic* blanket or another. These cute and handy bags with wide openings are from a pattern by the talented Anna from Noodle Head. They come together quickly and are the type of thing you didn’t know you needed, but will always find uses for.

I just love this grey fabric with orange, red and aqua flowers given to me by the also very talented Thouraya from Amelie and Atticus. I was lucky enough to pick up and extra fat quarter of it in Spotlight’s recent $1 fat quarter sale. Score!

Here is the small, medium and large versions with 10″, 12″¬†and 14″ zippers respectively. Anna has cleverly listed all three sizes here. I dare you to stop at one.

I love a coloured zipper more than I should. Speaking of zippers, where do Australian sewers buy theirs? I’m a Spotlight shopper myself. Speaking of Spotlight it’s been about five minutes since I went there, I’d better schedule another visit for this weekend to add to my collection of candy-coloured zippers. You know, just in case.

This blue and pink fabric is Sophie by Chez Moi for Moda, I think I picked it up some time last year.

I can’t line any project in plain fabric, I just can’t do it.


This dotted lining is by DS Collection Quilts. Expect to see more of it! Also expect to see a few of these bags under the Christmas tree this year.
