Sew TracyLee Designs introduces the Zipster…vinyl mesh wallet downloadable sewing pattern




Do you have scraps of vinyl mesh you’ve been holding on to because you knew there was SOMETHING you could do with them?  This is the project for you!!

Zipster is a sewing pattern for a vinyl mesh keychain wallet.  Note, the keychain configuration is optional

and you may quickly and easily make your vinyl mesh wallet without the keychain option, if you desire.

The Zipster pattern makes a perfect wallet for guys and gals on-the-go. The feather light vinyl mesh keeps the wallet light enough to be a keychain, enabling you to keep all your absolute essentials together.


*FAST and EASY* to sew!

Finished dimensions are approximately: 3.25″ high x 5.5″ wide (excluding keychain tab and ring).

YES!  Tracy gives clear, specific, written permission for the individual home sewer/crafter to make this item for sale and profit. See pattern cover image in the gallery above for the specific details.

Pattern uses vinyl mesh (a single 1/2 yard piece will make several), 1.25″ split rings, a closed end coil zipper of 7″ long or more (longer is better!), and fabric scraps (or a fat 1/8 will make several)!

NEW…Lazy Girl Candice Bag pattern has arrived!

A full two weeks earlier than anticipated, Lazy Girl Candice bag pattern has arrived!

Pre-release orders started shipping yesterday, Saturday, 10/15/11.

Finished Size: 11” x 11 ½” x 4 ½”

Designer, Joan Hawley, introduces a slick, new pocket technique that’s perfect for a tablet or eReader. She has affectionately nick-named the new pocket technique, ‘fat pockets’.  Joan describes these fat pockets as dimensional without a gusset, pleat, or complicated construction. She says they are ingeniously easy AND…not only do the fat pockets hold thick things well, they allow the weight of the contents to rest at the bottom of the pocket without dragging the lining down or creating a pucker in the pocket. Best of all, once you have the fat pocket technique in your toolbox, you can use it for pockets on any of the Lazy Girl bags.

Candice features a sweet zip top. Joan used the wildly popular Margo zipper, with a slight twist, to make it even easier.

Candi is a bit taller/deeper/wider/bigger than Margo. She has a fantastic hold-everything front pocket which is as easy to use as the front pocket on a pair of jeans.

Candi (as shown above) uses the size A Bag-E-Bottom and 2 packages (total of 4 rings required) of Clover 1″ wide Rectangular Rings, available in Glossy Nickel and Satin Bronze finish.  Joan says Candi’s instructions will include directions to make handles with or without  the 1″ sized Rectangular Rings OR ‘D’ rings.
