Zipp a Dee AY, My oh my what a wonderful day!

Just a quickie post of the zip-away fabric bag I made for my daughter's teacher. Made with some really nice black linen and a fat quarter of ... oh was that amy butler? I'm not sure..?? I wanted to get some Amy butler's lotus fabric in grey tones, but it hadn't come in yet so I had to choose something else. The bag features a handy extra zip pocket for money or cards or little bought items, and sturdy reinforced handles.

She loved it! She apparently spent her last day in class zipping and unzipping the whole thing over and over LOL! She was on her way to europe and said she would definitely be taking it with her.

All zipped up:

So cool! What pattern did you use?

I actually bought one of these to figure out how to make it but I left a cookie in it and my dog chewed a hole through part of it. : (

Love it though! Great fabric!

Thanks for your nice comments  Cheesy

This is an original pattern - well so far as I'm aware anyway lol! This certainly isn't a unique concept. I received a similar bag from my sister in law and I use it all the time. The outer zip cover (raw cambodian silk- So yummy!) was placed on the bottom of that bag, but the handles are really thin and too flimsy for me.

So I came up with my own version.

This is a great bag and I too wonder if you used  a pattern or if you made your own.   We would all love a tutorial if you would be able to share!   Thanks!
