Two-zip Hipster bag... I love it!

I took a class last Friday and we made the Two-zip Hipster bag. Our class consisted of 8 people so it was a great size and we were able to get a lot of attention from our teacher. I must say that this is one of the very best patterns I've ever seen. It's very thorough with lots of great pictures, extremely well written and easy to read. I can't recommend it highly enough.



We started at 9am and were finished by 3:30 pm with an hour for lunch so it was an all-day session... and this was considering we had already cut our bag main fabric, lining, interfacing and soft and stable before we got to class. I did finish up my strap, did the topstitching around the top of the bag, and put the little fabric square on the end of the zipper at home, but that's all... the rest we did in class.



I chose this fabric because it's a neutral and will go with many different outfits and I can use it in the summer too. I picked the gold/grey inner lining because my wallet is yellow/gold and I wanted it to match. :)

I absolutely love it and plan on making many more. The pattern designer allows them to be made/sold so you just might see them start popping up in my shop too.

Take care,
