Double Zip Gear Bag

A very proud show & tell for you because I'm super chuffed with this bag that I just finished!
Would you believe that it was so easy to make? Yes, it looks hard but the pattern was so well written that I breezed through making it!

The pattern was actually a paper pattern, I've gotten so used to buying pdf patterns nowadays that it was refreshing to work with something that I didn't have to wrestle with our printer first!

I love the colour of the zips, I think they worked super well with the fabrics.

The bag easily fits my current crochet project (this one) and I'm thinking I need to make another bag for knitting projects!

I think I need to make more as this fits perfectly in the car!

If you want to buy the pattern for the Double Zip Gear Bag, you can get it here or here. You'll also be needing some super long wide zips and mesh fabric too.

I've also popped a clip up on YouTube showcasing the bag because I love it so much!  Check it out here: 

So, have you made the bag or are you thinking of making one now?


  1. Not available at the moment 😩

    1. Huh? I'm confused, what isn't available at the moment, my site because you managed to leave a comment ...confused now??!!

  2. I wish there was a video tutorial for this bag. I bought the pattern from Annie at a sewing expo back in Feb, have most pieces cut and waiting for me. I do much better following along with a video.

  3. Can you make a video on how to make this bag? There is one on YouTube but it’s in a foreign language. Any help you could give me would really be appreciated. I’m not good at reading patterns, I’m a hands on person. Thank you so much, Mary

    1. If you 'trust' the pattern and pace yourself step by step and take a few days to do this then you can do it! I was so pleased with myself when I'd finished it as I thought it was going to be hard too!

  4. I did make this bag using just the instructions and it is a bit confusing, but does work if you follow them completely. However, I have to reinstall the flap and zipper that goes along with the sides and flap. My pattern, however, is in another state. Could someone send me a copy of the instructions?

  5. Is there a pdf pattern to print see nothing
