no no not French Baguettes...
Bridget's Bagettes by Atkinson Designs
I whipped up 3 of these bags this weekend.
One of each size.
Large for my 12 year old in purple Suzuko Koseki.
Medium for me with a ruler print for the interior.
And the small for my 6 year old in her favorite color - pink.

I have a few suggestions.
One, don't cut 3 sizes at once like I did.
Overall I confused myself.
Next time, I'm making all the same size!
Two, look at the diagrams VERY carefully or your zippers
 will zip in the opposite direction of what is "normal".
Ask me how I know...
I made all 3 zip the same - wrong way.
Three, make some of these!!
They are quick and easy
and I was pleasantly surprised despite my goofs.
p.s. I was not sponsored to say anything about this pattern.
I purchased it just to try it out and I hope you do too.

Which size did you like the best? or find the most versatile?

They are so cute - no matter what way they zip.

Even with zipper going the other way they are sweet!

I don't have this pattern but I've been thinking of getting it for myself. Quick gifts. Yours are very cute; backwards zipper and all. :)
