Personal Post – Open Wide Bag

This bag pattern comes in 3 sizes. First I made the small size and even though it turned out really cute, it was kind of a pain to get it through the sewing machine.

Then I tried the large size.  Wow!  This  is  a large  bag.  And  honestly,  it’s  almost  too  big.  Is  that  even  possible?  I tried  to  use  it  as  a cosmetic  bag,  but  it  got  too  heavy.   I  might  use  it  as  a sewing  project  bag  or  a run  around  purse.  

I do think the medium size will be the perfect size to use as a cosmetic bag or toiletry bag or a purse. This pattern is interesting in the fact that the top zipper binding finishes the top edge and it makes a loop handle on one end. Pretty cool design. And I love the fact that it stands upright all the time and it opens wide enough so you can see everything inside. I can see me making several more of these for myself and maybe as gifts!

And then because I just can’t help myself, I made a smaller zipper bag with the scraps. I mean – what was I supposed to do with them?

Be well,
