This is such a great pattern. It has 3 zippered compartments and 3 open compartments all enclosed by a long top zipper that keeps everything safely inside. The bag opens wide for easy access to everything, and the way it is constructed not only makes sewing this many zippers easy, but it closes the bottoms of all the compartments so what is inside one cannot slide into the next. Everything stays in the part you put it in!
Maybe not a project for beginning sewists, but if you have a little experience and have been thinking about making a project with zippers, try this one. The method of sewing them in is so easy and clever!
PS. This is a great project for using up scraps of fabric.
