This bag has beauty & function. You'll be amazed at how fast & easy it is to make! The zipper top ( although optional) is easy and will prevent all your treasures from escaping in transit. The pretty patchwork is amazingly simple but shows off your favorite print, with big quick patches. Best of all, this bag is sturdy & dependable -- the self-covered strapping/handles go all the way through to the bottom of the bag for support. The perfect bag -- and the perfect gift! Finished size: 4.5" deep, 22" high and 18" wide.
