Little Jelly Bags-5 adorable bags, just 6 strips or less


This follow up pattern to the larger Jelly Bag tote were a blast to make…and quick too!

I used some leftover strips from Martinique (3 Sisters, Moda) to make both my bags.  I made the Small & Extra Large sizes.

You can obviously customize your strap length, but I like this for an across-the body, hands-free look.  Perfect for shopping!

The jelly roll strips make up the inside & outside of the bags, so no liner is necessary.  The pattern does not provide for pockets, but they would be easy to add, if you didn’t mind the stitching to show on the bag’s exterior.

Great gifts and also a great beginner project to work with the kiddos.  Pick up your pattern today!

I’m linking up with Sarah!  Go see what others have done this week!

How cute are those - and great way to use some of those 'orphan' jelly strips.
