Suzy's Sack

A few weeks ago, while shopping with my friend, Linda, we ran across this cute pattern by This and That. We both snatched it up, thinking it the perfect size to carry keys and phone.
 Yesterday, I finally got around to trying out the clever pattern. It assembled quickly even though I had a little problem deciphering some of the directions. A few more clear illustrations would have probably helped this visual learner. The next bag will go super fast though!
 All in all, I recommend the little pattern. If you own it and haven't made it yet, give it a try.  A couple of hints: Next time, I'll interface the top binding piece. Also, I used a 7 inch zipper rather than the suggested 9 inch zipper and found it to be the perfect size.
Isn't it just the cutest thing!

  5. It IS just the cutest thing! Oh how I want to make it! But other projects have priority. Sorry to know it isn't clearly written, but thanks for figuring out - before I get to it - that I should add interfacing to the top. Can't wait to make mine.

  6. This is so cute! I think I purchased this pattern when I was in Minnesota this summer. I should try to find it and make it...

  7. Started working on mine since your post. It's not that more visuals are needed. This is isn't written clearly! I'm stumped as to which direction and where to pin the handle to the bag. In my opinion, Suzy's Sack needs a re-write.

  8. I think it's adorable. I also like the Christmas hankie, reminds me I should pull mine out.

  9. It is very cute. I'm a sucker for weensy purses that hold just a thing or two, and that can be made in bright colors. And this fits the bill on all scores!

    I'm impressed that you got it made so quickly!

  10. I'm ready to put this together, but I am weirded out by the instructions, regarding the zipper. This pattern def needs a rewrite...I've been sewing for 40 years and having a hard time following the instructions. I was going to go off on my own, but everything is cut and I don't want to mess things up. Can you give any advice to putting the zipper in easier than suggested? THanks
