Impress all your sewing friends with your amazing zipper abilities with this hip and stylish bag! This bag features five exterior pockets and an adjustable strap, so you can go from a bag that totes close under your arm to a fabulous cross-body bag. You have the option to make your bag all in one fabric, or go wild with your favorite charm pack in my quilted version! Because the Soft and Stable makes the bag slightly padded, it is perfect for your laptop, Kindle, iPad, and any other electronic devices!
The pdf pattern includes 18 pages of sewing instructions, complete with 41 step-by-step color photos.

Finished Size: 13” long x 15” tall
Supplies Needed to Make this Bag:
1 yard of Exterior Fabric (for quilted version, substitute 1 charm pack or 36 charm (5”) squares)
For quilted version only: 1/2 yard of fabric for the straps/top/side
1-1/4 yards of Lining Fabric
2 yards of Pellon® SF-101 Shape Flex® fusible woven interfacing
2/3 yard of By Annie’s Soft and Stable™, available at local quilt shops or on-line
(Soft and Stable is a thin, foam sew-in interfacing; one of my testers also recommends automotive headliner fabric in place of the Soft and Stable)
Helpful Hint: 2/3 yard of Pellon® #TP971 Thermolam® fusible interfacing (a needled fleece) may be substituted for the Soft and Stable, for a great slouchy look.
