Clam Up

Easy and fun to make, these bags in five sizes are perfect for storing and carrying make-up, sewing supplies, tech gear, and more. The pattern includes complete step-by-step instructions for making the bags with or without quilted fabric and for adding optional iron-on vinyl laminate to make the inside easy to wipe clean.

Double-slide zippers and handy grab tabs make the bags easy to open wide and attached side panels prevent contents from falling out. An optional strap with swivel hook may also be added.
When empty, the bags nest inside one another to save space.

Finished sizes of bags are as follows:
Extra Small (XS): 2.75in (H) x 3.5in (W) x 2-5/8in (D)
Small (S): 3.5in (H) x 4.5in (W) x 3-3/8in (D)
