Alice Bag

Quilted Patchwork Bag with Zip Closure

If you love machining this is a fun easy to make project, there is a lot of machining involved both assembling the patchwork and quilting it. It is a bag that is easily carried over the shoulder. It has a zip closure and an internal zipped pocket for extra security. On the front there is a feature pocket ideal for dropping your car keys in, but big enough for other items as well.


The bag is big enough for everyday items but also big enough for small items when shopping. The wadding used when quilting the bag makes it very robust and gives it shape, and it is fully lined.


This project lends itself to either splurging on a designer charm pack or alternatively there are so many pieces it is a great project for using up left over scraps of fabric.



It measures 12" wide 11"high and 4" deep.
