2017 VDTA Convention

VDTA-SDTA June 2017


Tracking New Patterns:
Ghee's #521 Zip to Shape

This quirky little drawstring bag is designed to lay flat for storing and Zip to Shape for using. The multi-sized pattern includes 4 sizes, however it is easy to alter to other sizes:
Extra Small: 3½" W x 6" H
Small: 3¾" W x 9" H
Medium: 6" W x 12" H
Large: 6½" W x 13" H
(all sizes are finished dimensions)

The extra small is perfect for a small child or jewelry. Other sizes are appropriate for evening or day. Designed with a band around the bag for extra support and styling, Zip to Shape offers the perfect palette for ribbon, border prints, patchwork, embroidery, threadwork, appliqué, kaleidoscope prints, or other favorite embellishments. Like other Ghee's patterns, the Zip to Shape has a secret pocket in the bottom.

The extra small and small sizes are fat quarter friendly. Use a #3 size zipper on the two smaller size bags. A #5 zipper is appropriate for the two larger sizes, yet a #3 works fine. Nylon Coil Zippers are preferable, however Plastic Teeth Zippers may be used.
