NOTE TO CUSTOMERS:
Ditty Bags 2.0 is an update of our popular Ditty Bags pattern which was originally released in 2012.
In addition to greatly improving the illustrations, we updated the instructions to make assembly easier and included instructions for working with directional fabrics.
We put handles on both ends and changed the border to a diagonal border, adding the option of embellishing the border with decorative ribbon.
We slightly tweaked some of the measurements and improved the process of attaching the Bag Sides to make a bag that ends up nice and square and stands up easily.
We also filmed an Add-on Video to help you with the more unique or challenging aspects of the pattern.
You will LOVE this new version!
Since the Ditty Bags 2.0 pattern includes a coupon to get the Add-On Video at no charge, we would recommend that you purchase the new and improved version of the pattern.
Add-on Video notice: There is an Add-on Video™️ available for this pattern. The Add-on Video™️ is specially designed to support specific parts of the pattern and help the customer learn our best techniques. It doesn’t replace the pattern — it will enhance their sewing experience.
No fabrics are included with this item, this listing is for the printed pattern only.
A note about the supplies needed –
Soft & Stable – Most ByAnnie patterns have a requirement for a foam product called Soft and Stable. Soft & Stable can be expensive to buy in the UK, so we would recommend a substitution which is readily available, of high quality and of which we stock called Vlieseline StyleVil Foam – when you compare the products side by side there is very little difference and using the Vlieseline Stylevil Foam will make a comparible item.
Fusible Interfacing – Another product which is regularly required in ByAnnie bag making is fusible woven cotton interfacing (SUP179), again this product is quite expensive here in the UK so we would recommend substituting this for our woven cotton interlining (https://www.etsy.com/your/shops/me/listing-editor/edit/855198629/about) which is much cheaper product but gives an excellent finish.
Bag Hardware, Elastic, Polypro and Zippers – We recommend that you use the ByAnnie bag hardware, Zippers, Elastic, Mesh, Polypro and Vinyl. The ByAnnie hardware is of an excellent quality and is perfect for any ByAnnie sewing projects. The Zips have extra wide sides which can also be used to face raw edges on your project and match the colour of the mesh and elastic for a great finish. All ByAnnie hardware is available in our shop.
POSTAGE IS FREE TO UK ADDRESSES. If you are outside of the UK then the appropriate shipping/postal charge will be applied at checkout.
