The Pocket Shopper is the ultimate stash busting pattern, using just half metre of fabric and a bit of ribbon. It's best to use a light weight fabric for this, like poplin, quilting cotton can be used, but be aware not all are made equal and some are thicker than others.
The pattern is beginner friendly and makes a super gift. Just make sure you make one (or 6) for yourself as well!!
The finished bag measures approximately 13" (32.5cm) square (excluding the handles) and squishes into a 4" x 2" (10cm x 5cm) triangle.
