About the pattern

You may have seen Elizabeth’s new pattern on her blog, Oh. Fransson! Everyone has been very excited about it, and I can tell you honestly that it is great! When we saw it we knew it would be a wonderful gift for our customers. We all need a fantastic zip bag pattern because they’re versatile, quick, easy and (best of all this time of year) they make great gifts! Plus, we trust Elizabeth to write great procedures to help you along every step of the way.

The pattern contains instructions for making three different bag styles in two sizes each. Version A has rounded corners shaped by darts. For each of the patterns you have an option of which strap to use (if any.) This bag makes a fantastic clutch or makeup bag.

Version B is a simple rectangular bag with 1001 uses! Again, choose your strap or none at all.

Version C is a tall bag with a gusseted bottom so it can stand on its own.  Useful and beautiful!

As you can see in the images, each of the bags looks amazing with either a single fabric or a patchwork exterior.

I was inspired to make a bunch of bags for my own family members and friends, so I’ll show you them for the next week and hopefully you’ll be inspired!
