Happy Reversible Itty Bitty Bag
Added Jan 28, 2010
My version of the Itty Bitty Bag. A reversible one with pink elastic for the loop closure.
I have also made another with the zip installation but there’s not image of that yet.
I found the zipper instructions very useful.
Here’s my tips:
- Use interfacing if you are using cotton or thin materials. It’s easy to iron on this pattern since it’s a square :) I would pleat the material before sewing up the edges especially if you are making a small (very itty bitty) version.
— Rather than cutting a hole in the bottom to reverse the bag to right side I just backstitched and ripped open a side seam, reversed it through there and then used invisible stitching to close the seam so there was no extra visible seam inside the bag.

Pink bead and elastic were from a bead set given to me for Christmas.
