Hello, friends! Today I’m sharing my Simple Mini Charm Zipper Bag. I have a free PDF to share with you for these bags and a step-by-step video tutorial, too. In addition, I also have gathered all of my favorite bag resources here for your reference.
Simple Mini Charm Zipper Bag
Bag Details + Materials
A few years ago, I designed a patchwork zipper bag in order to make two small bags using just one Mini Charm Pack. I filmed a tutorial with Fat Quarter Shop, and it’s been a great resource. Recently I made a few of these bags using our upcoming Bountiful Blooms collection and decided it was time to film an updated video to share with you here.
Find the materials needed for these simple zipper bags here:
- Scraps or 1 Mini Charm Pack
- 1 Fat Quarter for the Small Bag + 2 Fat Quarters or ⅓-Yard for the Large Bag for the lining and Bag Back
- Soft & Stable, batting, or fusible fleece for the bag stabilizer
- 12″ zipper (I love these zippers)
- Medium-weight fusible interfacing (I used this)
- Fabric scrap for Bag Front Zipper Border
- (1) 2 ¼″ x WOF strip for Binding

Thanks for the pattern and tutorial! I haven’t made a bag before, and haven’t put in a zipper in many years. But recently I’ve had an itch to make a project bag to take hand sewing projects and my lighted magnifying glass. Your tutorial and pattern will be a big help.

I always love a new bag pattern. Since last summer I have been in a bag making frenzy! It’s very satisfying and great to have a quick sense of accomplishment. I have made several dozens for gifts and for myself. Thank you for a new idea!
