II. This & That Pattern Company: Zippers Galore!

Our friend Sherri K. Falls continues to “wow” us with fun little projects that use zippers.

As part of her “Little Scraps”  from This & That pattern series, you’ll find patterns for a number of smaller bags, accessories, and more.

Sherri recently sent us a “mini trunk show” of six little projects that use zippers, and I love them all.

Click on the pattern titles (shown in blue) to shop the online catalog.

1. ) Koin Keeper Wallet

Finished Size: 3 1/2” x 5”

“A very sweet & easy wallet to hold everything you need to go out on the town.  Even has a zipper pocket for your coins!”

2.) Panache Pouch

Finished size: 4 1/2” x 7 1/2”

“A fast and fun wristlet!  Perfect for just about anything you need to go out on the town!”

3.) Out & About

Finished size: 6” x 10”

“This wristlet goes together quickly & easily, so don’t be scared of the gathers.  Perfect for going Out & About on the town!”

4. Little Cutie

Finished size: 5” x 6”

“A cute little coin purse that makes a wonderful gift for teachers, kids, or your quilting friends!”


5. ) Whimsey Wallet

6.) Mallory’s Big Box

Finished Size: 6” x 6” x 9”

“The perfect box for your knitting, make-up, games, or even holding your fat 1/4’s”


Of course, to make each project “just right”, you’ll need coordinating zippers.  Sherri uses the same flexible poly/plastic zippers as Atkinson’s Designs.   Click here for individual zippers ($1.00 each), or here for a complete assortment (36 zippers for $31.50).

Finally, I’m not a knitter.  But I might become one if I could carry my stuff around in this great bag:

7. ) Sticks & Stuff

Finished sizes: 8” x 10” (small pouch), 12” x 11” (large pouch), and 12” x 12” (needle case).
