Description

This was a really fun project. I've been liking to make bags lately, which I have hardly ever done before as I prefer clothing and toys, but I love this pattern and will likely make more (all the siblings and Ma have asked for one) it's really nice. Tons of pockets, what more could I want? The only thing it doesn't hold is my sewing machine :)

I've been coveting one of these bags for a while now. How hard is it?

Oh great job by the way. Love all the zipper colors.

Thanks y'all! I really enjoyed making it and will probably make more :)
@Seeneed- it's not that hard if you pay attention to the instructions. Here are over 80 pages of pictures and explanations. I read all of it to be sure I was doing it right, but I would not need to again. It took me about two days to make (but I also make civil war ball gowns in one day because I work on it for so long). There are more straight lines than anything, so if you can do a straight line, you could do this. It doesn't cost much either, so you should try it.

Note-- to make the price cheaper, I bought a pack of ten 9 inch zippers off of eBay for 99 cents. The only thing I didn't like about them was the fact that they measured the whole zipper as 9 inches. What I mean is, the zipper part is about 8 1/2 inches and the zipper tape extends to make it 9 inches. I would cover the end of the zipper with ribbon next time (see pics, the metal stoppers should be enclosed in the sides, with the measurement different they were to short)

EKatherineA Sounds like those should have been sold as7 inch zippers. The measurement is supposed to be the actual functioning part of the zipper.
