Hot Patterns 1092 Pyramid Bag

The Hot Patterns Pyramid Bag is finished! I love the size, and the groovy zebra print!, which is actually brown and cream, not black and white like it looks in the photo. This is one BIG bag, but I think it will be perfect to use as a carry-on when I travel. Lots of pockets both inside and out.

As you can see, I used a pretty pink quilting cotton from my stash for the lining.



A separating zipper allows access to both sides of this large bag. I also added a self-fabric 'lanyard' for my keys, and they will drop right into the pocket and be easy to find.

I think I'll get a lot of use out of this bag, which is big enough to hold all the essentials for travel. When not traveling, I think it will make a great knitting bag for large projects.

  1. I also made this bag and agree with you instructions were hard to follow but I did complete it. Then took out zipper and redid not my kind of purse. I have another Hot patters purse pattern and having a hard time reading it. I guess I need a good challenage.
