I made these for my friend Melanie and her daughter. The little one is at 85%. I made the strap shorter and just 1″ wide. I LOVE this size. If you need a little hands-free purse to hold your wallet, keys and phone when you go out, that size might be a great option.
Melanie picked out and sent me the blue dot fabric. She liked my sample one in pink for her daughter but I knew it would be too big for her. I’m so glad I got to try out the smaller size!
I had fabric left over so I did what I do – made more stuff. A nice 4×6 notepad holder to go with it…
Yes, I like the smaller one and also the one where you increased by 10%. Depends on who I am making it for. Have made several of the original so far and have yet to be able to keep one for myself. Just cut another out tonight for a Christmas gift.
I’m the same way! I’m still using my original test one with fabric that is just OK and not enough interfacing so it’s really floppy. I keep saying I need to make a one for myself soon! :) (Part of my problem is deciding which fabric to use…. I like to hoard the pretty stuff!)
Yes I would. Sometimes you just need your wallet, keys, phone, and lipstick. :-)
I agree! I’m working on a couple solutions for that :)
do you have a tutorial so i can try this?! its really cute!!
Hi Maddy! It’s just my Two Zip Hipster Pattern (available here: https://dogundermydesk.com/store/patterns/two-zip-hipster-pdf-pattern/) and then printed at 85% (which I kind of show you how to do here: https://dogundermydesk.com/2011/05/enlarging-and-reducing-pdf-patterns/) Does that make sense?
Any chance you have a fabric layout piece with the dimensions? I never printed the pattern pieces after I downloaded the regular one because it was easier just to measure.
I would totally make a smaller one – for myself or my great nieces. I just purchased the pattern today and will know for sure after I get the first regular-sized one complete.
A doll one would be cute, too!
What are the dimensions of the smaller Bag approximately?
Hi! The 100% Hipster is 9 x 11 x 1.5, so the 85% one is approximately 7.5 x 9.25 x 1. I hope that helps!
