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!

Linking up this week with Lorna for Let’s Bee Social and Myra for Finished or Not Friday. I’m so happy to link up with these girls – it’s been a long time!
