Okay! On to my FABulous experience! I got to make these cute all-purpose bags. The pattern is the Zippy Keeper by FABulous Home Sewn. (http://www.fabuloushomesewn.blogspot.ca/) This is a very straight forward pattern with several different variations.
These will make great back to school teacher bags. I would reccommend making them a little bit wider if you want to put pencils inside. We tried and it was a tight squeeze for new pencils, lol! I can see them being perfect for so many other things, everything from money to paper clips--the sky's the limit!
I made the larger size and it is a FABulous size for so many non-adult things!
Don't boys LOVE to collect things: legos, cars, balls, cards, game pieces, video games... In fact, perfectly fits one of my son's portable video games!
|Wouldn't this be great filled with mini figures?|

I found some great uses for these bags in my sewing room as well...
I have the hardest time keeping those clippy things together, but now they can be corralled in one of my Zippy Keeper bags! And I have a lot more pairs of little scissors than I realized. This would be the perfect spot to keep up with them!

What would you keep in your Zippy Keeper bag?
