Join Jess from Sallie Tomato in the Zippy! These pretty and practical zippy bags can be made in two sizes! The Zippy Bags are the perfect size for traveling, shopping, and gifting! These bags can easily fit a phone, sunglasses, card wallet, checkbook, utensils, gum, and other small items! I like to clip my keys to one of the swivel clips while shopping. This pattern is also fat quarter friendly! It requires only a small amount of fabric. In the tutorial video, Jess completes the project from start to finish, following along with the pattern. Throughout the video Jess also explains some tips to help with the written instructions. Here is the video's breakdown:
