This is my first time to make this kind of bag, so I am not sure that how it will be to fold them after it has been used a while. So far it is easy to fold and use. I didn't try the zipper versions yet. Happy new year, everyone.

Hi Genie! You make such cute things! These will make super gifts. This is sort of a design question/suggestion. What I found with most of the close-up bags is they seem to not fold up so easy after they’ve been used a while. Have you found this? I’m not sure of the cause, but I get frustrated with them - like the pocket is too small or something. Or, they are too much hassle. After a while I don’t bother. One of my faves has a bottom which folds in half and zips around. Closed it looks like a wide wallet or flat make-up bag. It’s a nice middle size, not as big as most grocery bags. One side of the zipper runs from centre across, down the shorter edge of the bottom, then across to centre again. Ditto the other. The longest side of the bottom has the shorter zipper section. A friend made me a great bag. Some of her gifts are odd. I wondered why on earth she’d made me a tank top that was obviously too short for my long waist. Surprise! It fits perfectly in the rack that holds the store’s bags. It stays wide open for packing. Making it zip closed would be even better. Nylon wears almost forever. I made a little RED one - my “GO BAG”. It’s for things I need to take next time I shop or whatever. Before I go out the door, I grab it. It’s about 11” x 8” x 4”. I’ve used it for years. The thread wore out and I restitched it. All these years and I don’t think there’s one hole in the fabric. It’s a great size, however I didn’t make the handles long enough to go over my winter coat easily. Cheers and Happy New Year Genie!

I love making bags, too. I'm thinking about a lunch bag. ~.~

So cute and an excellent idea for gifts! I keep thinking I will take a break from garment sewing and make bags or accessories, and you have given me inspiration.
