The "H" Bag Pattern

The "H" Bag Pattern


Reviewed by Christine Weiher, Editor,

Orange Dot Quilts was only recently created in 2015, but has already come out with so many amazing patterns. Designer Dora Cary loves the color orange and polka dots, which is where the name came from. One of her patterns is called the "H" Bag, which makes a beautiful easy-to-sew "H" bag. Included in the pattern is cutting diagrams, step by step instructions and tips for piecing and fabric requirements.

There are two sizes you can work up this bag in: the jumbo size is 18 inches by 16 inches by 9 inches and the regular size is 16 inches by 13 inches by 8 inches. Regardless of size you'll need 2/3 yards of your main fabric, but the lining fabric for the jumbo size calls for 1 1/3 yards and only 1 yard for the regular size. The shape of this pattern is great to hold your quilting and sewing projects and can even hold your knit and crochet projects as well; it's perfect for holding knitting needles and other supplies. Once the handles are in place you'll enjoy how sturdy it is and you'll even find yourself shopping at the farmer's market or taking it to the beach.

As in all of Orange Dot Quilt patterns, the patterns are printed on quality stock, have fully colored detailed instructions and have a well-designed cover with fabric requirements. If you're looking for a bold fashion statement then you're going to love The "H" Bag.

I love when people write reviews on a product they have bought because it tells you what they think of the product before you buy it. The blogger tells how this pattern is a good one she tells the size it finishes and how easy the"H" Bag is to handle and how roomy it is. She tells how the instructions are very well done. This helps me decide that I want to try this bag. Thank you for helping me make the decision. Anyone else buy be the reviews?

Can't make it if I can't get to the pattern !!!!
