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.

Fabric Yardage/Meterage:
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)

Recommended Fabric:
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.
