Double Pocket Lined Zipper Bag {EASY}

In the past I have shared my Five Minute Zipper Bag tutorial which is the EASIEST way ever to sew a zipper bag! After many, many requests I made a lined version of the bag. This week I wanted to show a fun way to use that same idea to create a double pocket lined zipper bag.

You will need:
2-4 cotton fabrics (the outer fabric for the small pocket can be a directional print, the rest need to be non-directional prints)
2 zippers measuring at least 10 inches (do not use metal zippers)

Cutting Measurements:

Small pocket – 9.5 x 13 inches (one lining and one outer)
Large pocket – 9.5 x 21 inches (one lining and one outer)

Once your materials are cut watch the step-by-step video tutorial HERE to learn how to sew the bag together!

I absolutely love this bag and have come up with so many different things I want to use it for! Β I know if Peyton sees it she will try to claim it for herself! Β Let me know if you want to see more bag how tos and other projects using french seams.

If you give this tutorial a try please share a pic using #WhitneySews so I can see it!

Until next time, Happy Sewing!

    Hi Thank you for your tutorials. Maybe is to much to ask. Would like to try a triple zipper bag with pocket on back.

      Just have it right sides together before sewing up the sides. I recommend serging or zig zagging the edges, or cutting with pinking shears if you go that route. Then turn right sides out and it’s done.

    Hi, I would like to know an easy way to attach some kind of handle or strap for a child to carry it. Thanks! I\\\’m thinking like If they had a notepad in the bag and crayons in the front, etc..

    Another great bag, Whitney!
    I have made quite a few of the 5-minute bags, and I used the double sided quilted fabric, and they came out great! I can’t wait to try this one.
    Love your quick & easy tutorials!!!
