This is something I made a while ago, but never blogged. This is a gift I made for my mother, a little zip bag. It’s actually part of a set I made. There is also a coin purse and a larger tote. But I was sewing these up the week before Christmas and had no time for a photo session.

I used the Perfect Zip Bag pattern by Elizabeth Hartman of Oh Fransson! It’s great pattern that I’ve used before with great results. I colour-blocked this version, using black chambray and a Japanese-inspired print that I picked up as a fat quarter at a nearby quilt shop.

This bag is currently being used to hold a portable knitting kit.

I used Anne Keelle’s Argyle in Steel to line the bag. It’s one of my favourite prints.

I love how the zipper is finished in this pattern. So tidy!
