The Clam Up Bag



These bags are easy and fun to make and make perfect gifts for the holidays – or just for yourself!  They come in five sizes perfect for storing and carrying make-up, sewing supplies, tech gear, and much more.
The bags can be made with or without quilting the fabric and you can add iron-on vinyl laminate to make the inside easy to wipe clean.
Double-slide zippers and handy grab tabs make the bags easy to open wide and attached side panels prevent contents from falling out. An optional strap with swivel hook may be added.
When empty, the bags nest inside one another to save space.

Finished sizes of bags are as follows:
Extra Small (XS): 2¾"H x 3½"W x 2⅝"D
Small (S): 3½"H x 4½"W x 3⅜"D
Medium (M): 4¼"H x 5½"W x 4"D
Large (L): 4⅞"H x 6½"W x 4⅝"D
Extra Large (XL): 5½"H x 7½"W x 5"D

We will be making the large Clam Up in class.


We will start promptly at 10 am so arrive early enough that your machine is set up, threaded and ready to go!
