Zipper Accent Bucket Purse FREE sewing pattern

We were so surprised when we came across this great bag pattern. Usually, you’ll see the same bags keep cropping up from time to time and get familiar with them, but here’s one we only found recently even though it was originally published back in 2013.

Great style and design never go out of fashion and this simple bucket bag is packed full of eye-catching features that will make this bag really stand out in a crowd.  The metal zipper accents really pack some punch, but if you don’t like the look of the flowers, then just adding them in as the trim on the top of the bag works well too.  People will be stopping you in the street to ask where you bought this one!

To make the zipper accent bucket bag you will need:

  • ¾ yard of 58-60″ wide heavy cotton twill or drapery weight fabric for bag exterior and strap,
  • ¾ yard of 44-45″ wide medium weight fabric for bag lining,
  • 6 yards of ⅝” continuous Metal Zipper Tape in black (or whatever color works best for your bag) 2 yards for the bag trim and 4 yards for the six flower accents (Available from several suppliers on Etsy, not too expensive),
  • 1 yard of 44″ heavyweight fusible interfacing – Pellon Décor Bond,
  • SIX decorative metal buttons for the zipper flower centers,
  • A small piece (2″ by 10″) of plastic canvas for the base of the bag,
  • All-purpose thread to match fabrics,
  • See-through ruler,
  • Fabric pen or pencil,
  • One large, heavy-duty sew-on snap – recommended.
