Stitcher?s Dream Bag / Mega Dream Bag

Pattern - Bodobo Bags by Ticklegrass Designs

Stitcher's Dream Bag (7.25” tall, 7.5" wide, 5" deep, 12.5" at top when closed)


Mega Dream Bag (9” tall, 10.25" wide, 6" deep, 15.5" at top when closed)


Fabric Requirements: Purchase either pattern and see back for fabric requirements. This will include fabric, Pellon SF101 fusible interfacing (Shape Flex), and fusible fleece such as Pellon TP971F or #987.

            Zipper size UPDATE: I Recommend a 4.5mm handbag zipper with 1 zipper pull. If your zipper has 2 pulls or is longer than stated on back of pattern, don’t worry, we’ll cut it to fit.


*All fabric must be cut before class* Before class starts, I will email you a page of cutting labels and extra details to help you plan for this class, which will include an SF101 size change for pockets. Follow the Cutting Directions at top of page 1, except for zipper tab.

UPDATE: - cut zipper tab 2.5” x 3.5” (not 2”x3”) for 4.5mm zipper

Call me if you’re new to fusing SF101 woven fusible interfacing or have directional fabrics.

            Update: -Page 1, Pellon SF101 for pockets, cut 2 – 11”x14” (Stitcher’s Bag) not 5-1/2” x 14”
