If you’re new to my 52 zippers project, you can read the backstory, see all the zipper pouches, and download basic zipper pouch instructions here.
Last year I finished the small size of Noodlehead’s Maker’s Tote and I totally loved it. I wanted to make one in the large size as well, for times when I needed to carry even more things!
The second I saw this Anna Maria Horner print I knew it was going to be the outside of a bag. I just love it! The binding and handles are Essex yarn-dyed linen in charcoal.
The lining fabric is another Anna Maria Horner print from the same Fibs and Fables line.
I again moved the outer zipper pocket to the inside to avoid distracting from the outside print fabric. For the main zipper, I used a large metal non-separating zipper this time and just made the tail so long that it didn’t matter.
This time I used double-sided fusible foam, so there wouldn’t be any fabric sagging or puffing. I didn’t want to quilt over the main print so this seemed like a good solution. It isn’t totally perfect, but definitely smoother than having no quilting or fusing at all!
I think this might be one of my favorites to date! It is a fantastic large bag that will hold an entire EPP quilt or several smaller projects.

See you back here next time with another zip pouch!
I’m so inspired by your projects and posts! Thank you for sharing!
Thank you Elise! 🙂
