I made these for a swap I did awhile back and I love how they turned out. The pattern was a little intimidating but ended up being a lot easier than I expected.



I'm kind of addicted to scrappy rainbow patchwork.  Grin

Very cute! I once made a set of these, nesting inside one another in three sizes for my sister who was travelling a lot. She loved them. The smallest bag she used for her jewelry, the largest one for bras, and the middle size for pantyhose. They helped keep her luggage and motel room sorted. And you are right. It is a very neat pattern, and really not that hard of geometry to figure out. Great job!

oh what a neat idea! I don't think my math skills are sharp enough to figure out nesting ones!  Cheesy

These are neat! I've heard them called "Humbug Bags", because they're similar in shape to a humbug candy in England.
Thank you for sharing.

I don't have super good math skills, either, but basically you just re-size the pattern a few inches larger (with the larger zipper sizes) for each one stepping up. It is just the same rectangle pouch with the opposite side squished with on that side zipper centered, other side zipper top.. Same as you have made only larger. Then when you store them and are not using them, you can zip the bags inside one another. So basically you just add a few inches all around based on the zippers you have available. That is how I made mine. And mine were scrappy, too  Grin It was a de-stash sort of gift.
