We simply can’t sew enough zipper bags. No matter the size or shape, they are fun to sew, usually aren’t too difficult, and are always useful in every room of the house. Ideal for storage, keeping things tidy and in the right place, keeping things easy to find and well sorted, moving things from one place to another with ease, and just for encouraging us to put things away when we’ve used them – yes kids, we mean you too!
They can also make a nice gift idea, or a way to present a gift, as in this pattern and the reason it was created and shared.
