The Angler just might be the “catchiest” bag yet! A flat layout makes for a nifty, unique design that can be sewn up quickly using fabric, vinyl mesh, clear vinyl, printed vinyl, jelly vinyl, cork, faux leather – the possibilities are endless! This bag can be stitched with as little as four seams when using cork or faux leather. Add a binding to vinyl mesh screen for a pop of color!
Tote cosmetics, pencils and markers, phone accessories, etc. with a flair of style. Fits nicely into a large purse or tote and is great for travel. Three sizes are included in the pattern. When taught in a three hour class every student finished at least two bags and some up to six bags. The sizes range from 4 x 7″ to 6 x 9″.
This is a great class to familiarize your students with cork, jelly vinyl, or jelly mesh. You can use zippers by the yard and show them how to use the Gypsy Quilter Zipper Jig to add zipper pulls.
Change or add a zipper pull with ease. Place the zipper pull in the appropriate channel with the zipper pull facing the back side of the jig. Place the ends of the zipper tape into the pull with the teeth also facing the back of the jig. Give a little tug on both tapes at once and your zipper pull is installed. It’s that easy.
The pattern is due to arrive next week so place your orders now. Don’t forget to order cork, vinyl, zipper pulls, zippers and the jig as well. What a great demo opportunity!

Maria used Scrap Tape from The Gypsy Quilter® to add a scrappy border.
Scrap Tape is a wash away foundation that stabilizes the grain line of your fabric until it is sewn into your finished project. Make unique 5- inch strips using fabric scraps, using a stitch and flip method, then trim to size. Since Scrap Tape washes away with water, do not use steam or a starch/starch alternative while constructing your strips. Wash the stabilizer away AFTER the project is complete. One package includes 25 yards of 5in wide Scrap Tape.

What is a zipper jig? It acts as a third hand when adding a pull, or changing a pull, on zipper tape or an existing zipper.
Use The Zipper Jig from The Gypsy Quilter® to easily add a custom zipper pull onto zipper tape. The Zipper Jig will accommodate size 3, 4.5 and 5 zipper pulls and tape. Available in Bohemian Blue and Gypsy Purple.
If you are like me, and didn’t know the what those numbers mean, they are the width in mm of the teeth in the zipper. The traditional zippers that we grew up with are usually 3. Zippers that are 4.5 and 5 have become increasing popular, especially in bag making.
Zippers have become a fashion statement. Most companies, including Atkinson Designs, By Annie, and Sassafras Lane (just to name a few), offer zipper pulls in assorted colors that can be switched out to add that awe factor.
These zipper jigs are also the perfect companion to zippers by the roll and makes a great demo! Both colors are in stock and available now.
