The Girl Next Door Bag from Imazzpatterns






I recently enjoyed testing a bag for Imazzpatterns called The Girl Next Door Bag. I enjoyed the simplicity and the practicality of this bag.


I used Tula Pink Mini Owl in orchid from her True Colors collection for the main fabric.




If you look closely on the back, you can make out the owls.  The bag measures 11-1/2" H and the width varies from 11" at the top to 13-1/2" at the widest point.  It is 2-1/4" deep.  The flap is closed by a magnetic snap.  But the special part of this bag is the hidden zipper pocket under the contrast strip on the front of the bag.


 Here is my phone sticking out of that pocket.  The pocket is very large as it encompasses the whole front of the bag.  The pleats allow it to expand further without crimping on the space on the inside of the bag.




The inside has an optional slip pocket that I added.


You can purchase this pattern on her Etsy page here.

  2. I love hidden pockets. I also like not having to lift the flap for something I grab often.
