About Trendsetter Zip Top Bag:
We’ve got a fun bag tutorial for a zip top bag with LOADS of pockets. The Trendsetter Zip Top Bag by Sew Many Creations is the perfect size, not too large to overload, not so small you can’t carry anything.
As always you can get the pattern and supplies from us to make this bag, including kits of the two versions we made for this video. The kits have limited quantities, but the pattern and notions will be in stock forever.
You can easily fit your wallet, tablet, phone, face mask, sanitizer and whatever else you need in the Trendsetter. And it’s got three exterior pockets, three dived pockets and a zippered pocket on the inside. Plus the zip top keeps everything safe and secure inside.
And with just simple zipper installs and NO hardware, this bag is very beginner friendly. This is a great bag to make if you’ve never made a bag before, or have made a few simple ones and are ready for something a little more challenging. I got mine together in an afternoon with all the pieces cut and fused before I started sewing.
As always I walk you through the processes step-by-step for all of you visual learners, but we leave all the measurements out. If you love this bag, then support the pattern designer and grab a copy.
I also include time codes of when I am demonstrating the different sections below so you can skip right to the section you are working on.
