The Clover bag pattern is for a very small yet super sweet cosmetics bag. The Clover bag interior is fully lined with no seams to bind. At each side of Clover is a small box pleat for some visual interest. A tab at each end of the zipper gives you something to grab while opening and closing the zipper. Clover is a deluxe storage bag for toiletries, or a handbag for a little girl.
