NOTE TO CUSTOMERS:
Open Wide 2.0 is an update of Open Wide which was released in 2016. Just like a new edition of a textbook, this new version of the pattern features improved design and layout, easier-to-follow steps and diagrams, and our newest and best techniques. Specific changes include:
Eliminated excess mesh at bottom of the bag. No more fighting small items out of the mesh.
Replaced fabric binding on mesh pockets with fold-over elastic. Now you can really fill those pockets.
Improved bag shape, particularly on small. It now stands up by itself.
Included stitched fold lines to side. This makes them easier to fold and store when not in use.
We have also filmed an Add-On Video for the project to help you make the bags. Since the Open Wide 2.0 pattern includes a coupon to get the Add-On Video at no charge, we would recommend that you purchase the new and improved version of the pattern.
Add-on Video™️ notice: There is an Add-on Video™️ available for this pattern. The Add-on Video™️ is specially designed to support specific parts of the pattern and help the you learn our best techniques. It doesn't replace the pattern — it will enhance your sewing experience.
If you are buying a paper pattern and it has a video, you will get a coupon for the value of the Add-on Video™️ included in the package with your pattern in the mail. In this case, we recommend waiting until your pattern arrives and then coming back to the website to purchase your Add-on Video™️.
