Upcycled Subway Bags

Does any one else's kids collect the Subway bags that come free with the kids' meals? Mine do. Each bag is a treasure, and can't be thrown out. Our bag collection was starting to get a little out of control so I thought there had to be something I could do with them to make them more usable (because honestly, these messenger style bags with cheap-o clasps are good for nothing!)
So I created a little zip pouch pattern. One with darts on the bottom so it would be nice and shapely. Plus an overhanging zipper, so the pouch with open nice and wide.

And now we have a useable zip pouch that we can fill with crayons.
...and airplanes
...and anything else the kids can find.
Do you want to make one too? You don't even need to use the Subway bags, you can use regular fabric too. You just need 1/4 yard (or one Fat Eighth) of each outer fabric and lining. You will also need a 7 inch or longer zipper. 

The pattern is FREE and you can get your copy over at my Craftsy Pattern Shop

I am releasing this pattern as part of the Aspiring Designer Challenge, so be sure to head over to the Swhetty Bettie's to enter a drawing for a chance to win ALL the Zuzzy Patterns.
