At a recent Sewtopia Sewing Club, Sara featured the following 3 patterns from Lazy Girl Designs: the Becca Bag, Sweetpea Pods and Fobio. Now with the release of the Zippered Bags with a Twist: The One-Zip Way Craftsy class, all three of these patterns are INCLUDED in your class materials! That’s $30 of patterns free AND the 2-hour class with designer Joan Hawley for one low price.

Notice the zipper bags only use ONE side of a zipper? That is what makes them stand open. It also is what allows you to change the zipper pulls to a different color!

And Fobio is the hottest new key fob pattern. Fobio zips up to your wrist to secure or clip it to a pouch for an instant wristlet! See below for an optional kit.
