|Here is the pattern, you can try to right click and then fiddle about at your end with printing it out onto two A4 sheets, OR just wait until hubby dear puts it into a zip for me...|
|The main body, two sides added together makes one large rectangle.|
|small side rectangle attached to the main body|
|Other side panel ready to be sewn.|
|Top rectangle and zip.|
|Using the zip foot, sew along the edge of the zip. Right side to right side.|
|Another angle for the same bit above.|
|Second zip side|
|Both sides sewn into place,|
|Folded into position and out flat to neaten edges.|
Sew the sides (the ones attached to the bottom of the main panels) to the main panel, I chose not to pin much on this make as accuracy wasn't a great necessity for me at this time.. if I were to be making for another though I would chose pins.
Fold the zip panel in half to find the middle point, do the same with the bag. Match together the mid points on both the main panel and the zip panel, holding wrong sides together. Sew along a 1.4" seam across the top. Do the same with the opposing side....
Now the tricky bit....
Sew the zip panel down the side edges - On all four edges
Remember to keep an overlap where the zip panels meet the side panels.
Sew along these last few bits - wrong sides together and a patient hand.
I would have taken photo's at this stage but, my other half not realising that the bag wasn't finished sent it off with our son to the child minder!.... No binding, or handles... nothing!
The final bag.... We have now created the zip file for your pattern to print out... all I need now is somewhere to store it, so I can link this to that... all in good time, lets not run before we can walk x
