Zippy Bag Sewing Pattern - Jen Fox Studios


    The Zippy Bag is a great bag to experiment with different combinations of fabric, or to showcase your favorite designer's latest fabric collection! Each step is thoroughly explained and I've included computer drawn illustrations of the steps. The pattern includes instructions for installing a top zipper closure, exterior zipper pockets, and interior slip pockets.

    ** You may use this pattern to create handmade finished items to sell! Please credit me (Jen Fox Studios) for the design in any online item description.
