Please note: This is a Digital Sewing Pattern, not a Physical Paper Pattern. This PDF pattern is a digital download that must be printed at home or at a copy shop. You will receive an email with a link to download the pattern, which will give you several printing options.
Each bag is constructed from a single rectangular piece of fabric without producing any scraps or waste in the process.
The ZWStash, or Zero Waste Stash bag, is a versatile, unlined tote bag with an over-the-shoulder length strap and many pockets. The slender pocket proportions make the bag ideal for housing a knitting project and needles, a sketchbook and pens/pencils, a meal and utensils, or many other fun combinations!
The bag comes in three sizes and styles; Small, Medium and Large.
Level: The pattern is suitable for Advanced Beginners and up.
The pattern contains cutting layouts with all the dimensions you need to make your own ZWStash but if you’d like to get a head start on knowing yardage/meterage, here are the dimensions of each size’s rectangle:
-Small: 12.5”x37” (31.5x94cm)
-Medium: 15.75”x42” (39.5x107cm)
-Large: 35”x28.25” (89x72cm)
This pattern is best suited for medium-to-heavy weight woven fabrics at around 8-10oz/yard (270-340 g/m2). Cotton canvas or a similar fabric e.g. waxed canvas, oilskin, twill, half panama, etc. work well. Please keep in mind that heavier fabrics will give the bag more structure but will add a bit of bulk at some of the seams.
