Open Wide Zipper Bags

Tired of zipper bags you can’t find things in because they won’t open wide enough? This OPEN WIDE bag fixes that!

I’ve become quite zipper bag obsessed and these are perfect for travel or just organizing the bits and pieces of your life.

I found this bag on the “A Bright Corner” blog. I met Andy & her husband at the Quilt Market in Houston and fell in love with her – now I’m in love with all the goodness and beauty on her blog as well!

The tutorial itself is from Anna Graham over on her blog – Noodle head.  Click here to go straight to the tutorial.

Once I made one I was hooked!

These make great gifts too – I whipped up 6 in an afternoon to give to my sister, mom, niece and more! I had a lot of fun mixing and matching the florals, ginghams and wheat tonal fabrics from the Homestead Life fabric line I created for Riley Blake Designs.
