This was purely a "because I want to" kind of project around here. I fell in love with those oversized striped zippers and needed a new toiletry bag for my upcoming travels.
• To make the bag, I used all of my cream scraps from my scrap bucket. Our kit will provide you with (6) different fabrics in similar feel and color to the ones I used but not the same.
• Since the striped zipper is kind of the star of the show, I decided to sew it to the top of my quilted outside piece instead of the normal way. I provide you some quick notes about how I did that but you should only attempt this if you are used to making bags and comfortable with altering bag pattern instructions. If that is not you... don't despair... you can still make the bag but you will just need to make the bag the normal way, according to the pattern provided and less of your striped zipper will show.
• This size is quite large, app. 6' x 10" x 4" once finished. You can of course make any of the LITTLE JELLIES bags or pouches in the pattern in any size that suits your needs.
• The little side tabs and handle are an addition from my scraps. I will give you directions on how to add the tabs but not the handle. Again, if you are a bag maker, feel free to experiment with a handle.

Kit contains the following:
• (6) ⅛ yds of a variety of cream fabrics. You are then meant to add in as many of your own cream scraps as you can although the fabric is enough to make several bags.
• Fig Tree floral fabric for lining [enough to make several bags]
• Fig Tree Schoolhouse Block zipper pull
• (1) special striped zipper
• (1) roll of fusible Bohin tape for fabric positioning [so incredibly helpful in bag making and zipper attachment]
• Pellon Fleece [enough for 2 bags]
• LITTLE JELLIES Bag Pattern Included
• Additional written instructions in addition to the pattern outlining the specifics of this particular pouch such as size, zipper and tabs.
