Zip Bags

Zip BagsI have been making these little bags for years and have been promising a pattern for about that long. I have a presentation/demo tomorrow on how to make them so I figured I might as well finish the pattern and it will be available soon.

Mini Zip BagsThe smallest bags are no bigger than a coin purse and are just so darn cute. They are sewn completely by machine. I could use a better name. Any suggestions?

As of 4/18: I have finished up the pattern. It includes 3 sizes and costs $8.00 plus $1.00 postage or as an e-pattern for $6.00. Please email me if you would like one. I do accept PayPal.

    How about “Bitty Purses” or “Bitty Bags”?

    • Hmmm, that is a cute name. I will have to consider that. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Cute! That’s really good idea for gifts.And stash busting. Or buying new fabric, lol.

    I am patiently in line for the pattern.

    As for a name..
    Zippies? Quilted Zips? Quips?
