The Two Zip Hipster Bag

This pattern was given to me by a quilting friend.  We have been sewing every second sunday since Sept. The Two Zip Hispter PDF Pattern is from the Dog Under My Desk site.

I have made one other Dog Under My Desk pattern which is called the Circle Earbud Pouch Tutorial. The full tutorial is here.The earbud pattern is the perfect gift for teenagers.  I usually make one for my daughter to put her friend’s birthday money in.

Back to the bag.  This pattern in not for beginners.  I am thankful I had a comfort level with bag making and zippers.  There are may pages of instructions and images which were invaluable – and sometimes I had to read several times to really ‘get’ it.  I have a habit of trying to speed through patterns and this pattern is one in which you would want to take your time!  I had to rip and resew many aspects of the bag, but it paid off!

I love it!  The material is kinda loud, garish, and in your face.  It was from my stash and the next one will be more calm in nature. I also chose to use metal zips which was a new experience for me and resulted a few broken needles 🙂

This bag is fully lined has a great small zipped exterior pocket plus a drop-in pocket.  The main compartment is deep and has side pockets for your cell or pens, etc.  Below are pics of the partial constructed bag and the final project.
