This little bag

Rocks, seriously, it's cute, it's fast to sew and it looks great.

I made the original size from Noodlehead - you can find it here

I made the first one - the red one exactly as stated except I didn't use the 1/2 inch seam allowance, just the width of my foot.  And I only used 2 inches for the squaring of the bottom, I wanted a taller pouch.

The second one I tweaked just a tad. I understitched the zip on the wrong side, just so it didn't get caught in the teeth, cause I wasn't being careful the first time round.

And I thought I'd be clever with the tab pull, but just don't bother, do it as the original lol!!  I spent several frustrating minutes thinking why did you think that was a good idea.

Anyways consensus is I love it - did I say that already, I think they would make wonderful Mother's Day Stall gifts, or just a stash to have on standby to fill with soaps, makeup, bikkies, lego, marbles or whatever.  I think they'd also make awesome project bags in the bigger size - which you can find here


  1. They look great! I have this on my to do list! I've got the perfect fabric, just need to get my Christmas projects done first.

    1. Thank you , they are great little bags and yes I'm not done on my Christmas list yet either.
