This patchwork double zipper purse is a practical and functional little purse that is sew-much-fun to make (pun intended).
It comes with 3 external pockets, and two internal pockets, and of course a zipper pocket. The finished measurement of this bag is about 9 1/2" x 10 1/2", a nice size to carry your necessities from wallet, phone, make up, sunglasses, etc.
For the patchwork you will need 2 1/2" squares in 3 different colors. This is a great way to use up some of those scraps, or leftover fabric, you can also use some fabric strips (jelly roll) one strip for each color will suffice for the patchwork.
