Customer Show And Tell :: Run Around Bags

 One of my customers is planning a big trip with a friend in November. She made them both RunAround Bags for their trip.

RunAround Bags made by Cheryl D.

These bags are fun and easy to make. Cheryl has very limited experience with zipper installation, but did great with these bags because the way the pattern has you put in the zipper is very forgiving. The pattern is very well written with good diagrams. I would say it is a good beginner bag pattern. It's an older pattern, but doesn't mean it isn't still a great one.

It's a good travel bag because it isn't too big. It will hold your phone, plane ticket, passport, chapstick and a small wallet. You might even be able to get a small paperback book in the back pocket.

These bags finish at 7" by 9" (not including the shoulder strap). They don't require much time or materials to make. You need 2 fat quarters, 1 zipper (10" or longer, but it needs to have plastic teeth so you can cut it down once it is sewn in), and 1/4 yard of fusible fleece. If you have a big enough scrap of batting or fusible fleece (about 8" by 10") that will work too.

I only have one pattern left in stock at the moment, but more are on order and should arrive by the end of this week. So if you want to order a pattern and I am out of stock, just check back in a day or two. Or you can contact me and I will let you know personally when they come in.  RunAround Bag Pattern
