With fun, simple additions like a front pocket and adjustable straps, this bag will be with you for many travels to come. Learning this quick and simple method for adding a zipper has revolutionized my bag making abilities and opened up whole new possibilities! Zippers are no longer the scary "z" word. In this method you sew the lining and the front at the same time and a few minutes later you have a fully enclosed zipper ready for bag construction…and better yet, no zipper foot required!

Pattern includes straightforward step by step instructions for zipper, gusset and bag construction. If you think this is beyond your bag making abilities..let me tell you that I had never sewn in a zipper or a gusset before this. If I can figure it out, I have all confidence that you can as well. So, let's get started so you can be accompanied by your own creation during your next travels...wherever they might take you. Paris, perhaps? Made using the Patisserie collection by Fig Tree for MODA.
