I just uploaded the rewritten tutorial on the Nine Patch Totebag with Recessed Zipper as promised, albeit just a little late. Here is the second bag I made for picture taking purposes for the tutorial.
Halfway through the process I decided I wanted my bag to be shorter than the nine patch, so I grabbed my rotary cutter and zip! That top row came right off. 🙂 This is a great size, and I really love it.
Especially this pop of green as the lining. And polka dots! Who doesn’t love polka dots??
If you decide to make your own bag using my tutorial I would love to see what you make. Let me know if you have any questions – I’ll be happy to help!
