Open Wide 2.0
Quick and fun to make, these bags in three sizes open wide for easy access to all your supplies.
Binding on the easy-to-install zipper finishes the upper edges and forms a handle and grab tab.
Two inner mesh pockets keep things organized and easy to view.
Soft and Stable® provides great body and stability and ensures that the bags stand up and hold their shape.
Slip these classy zippered bags in your suitcase — or use them to maximize the space on your vanity.
Be sure to make a few Open Wide 2.0 bags to have on hand for gifts. Who wouldn’t love a cute bag for cosmetics or other supplies?
The pattern includes complete step-by-step instructions for bags in three sizes:
Small: 4″H x 7½”W x 3½”D
Medium: 6½”H x 10½”W x 5″D
Large: 9″H x 12″W x 6″D
NOTE TO CUSTOMERS:
Open Wide 2.0 is an update of Open Wide which was released in 2016. Just like a new edition of a textbook, this new version of the pattern features improved design and layout, easier-to-follow steps and diagrams, and our newest and best techniques. Specific changes include:
- Eliminated excess mesh at bottom of the bag. No more fighting small items out of the mesh.
- Replaced fabric binding on mesh pockets with fold-over elastic. Now you can really fill those pockets.
- Improved bag shape, particularly on small. It now stands up by itself.
- Included stitched fold lines to side. This makes them easier to fold and store when not in use.
We have also filmed an Add-On Video for the project to help you make the bags.
