This bag pattern is OODLES of fun! There are lots of ways this bag can be finished, and lots of ways to use it. Finished bag is approximately 12" in length, but can easily be changed with the instructions included. The available length of zipper is the only limit. The size of the zipper teeth, and fabric used, may change the finished bag + or - an inch.
