Tutorial: make your own zip bag from printed leather or felt

A handful of coins. Your pills for travel sickness. Your earplugs. Your lucky charm. There’s 101 little valuables you can put in a zip bag! In luxuriously handprinted fake leather or felt, the bag becomes a treasure in itself. In your lockdown box you’ll find all the material: with a zipper, a piece of our accessory material, this video tutorial  and the pattern you can get started!

You didn’t buy a box but you’re a fan of our accessory fabric? Or you’d like to make more than one purse? The material is also available separately in our Lotte Martens webshop!

Download the pattern: you can find the 3 sizes (S, M and L) on one pattern sheet.

  1. I love that this post pointed out that a leather backpack is excellent for casual use as well as for professional purposes. The other day my son mentioned that he would like to buy a new leather backpack since he will be starting work next month. I think I will gift him with a backpack to congratulate him on landing his first job.
