The (any size) Dishy Bag Pattern Booklet

3 items left

Finished size - you can make this bag to any size, or you can make a Medium sized Dishy Bag: 28" x 3 1/2" (71cm x 9cm)

Hard copy booklet also includes a web link to the PDF version (so you can reprint at home as many times as you need!)  Printed as a 2 sides per page booklet onto copier paper. 

Dishy bags are a must for any busy household. Perfect for storing anything from toys to craft supplies. Make them in any size to suit your needs.  This bag has a nice wide base so you can rummage/sort/play/work/craft/etc with ease.  When you want the mess to go away, you simply draw up the bag and hang it up, or store it in a room corner -  ahh all tidy again (in mere seconds).  Read about and see more pics of the Dishy Bag here.

Things we love:

  • Really easy to make - once you've chosen your size the bag is quick to whip-up. To make life even easier I have included instructions for a med-sized bag.
  • Really useful - most anyone will have a use for these bags
  • Really clever - the bags work brilliantly as mobile play/craft areas. I use our Dishy bag to lug around my daughter's toys on outings.
  • Really flexible - follow the instructions to make Dishy bags to any size you want.
  • Really cool - choose fabrics to match your home. The large circular shape lends itself well to showcasing your fave fabrics.
