Trifecta Zip Bags



Learn to make these gorgeous multi-use bags in our 4-hour class.

The Trifecta Zip Bag pattern provides options for 6 different sized bags (3 each for 2 different internal wire frame widths). Create gorgeous, toiletry, makeup, pencil or essential oils bags using our smaller sizes & even use the larger size as a handbag.

This set of easy to make bags is a step up from the popular Retreat Bag pattern, also by Emmaline Bags, with several more options such as accented top and bottom pieces, and handbag straps.

Instructions are provided to put the straps on the largest size of each set, but why not add them to all! Suitable for an advanced beginning quilter with knowledge of using the freearm on a sewing machine. These bags have an A Frame shape, wide at the bottom and tapering in at the top. Each bag opens wide, has a structured top shape & includes 2 internal slip pockets.
