Bells and Whistles Quilted Coupon Organizer Bag – PDF Sewing Pattern

Coupon Organizer Bag PDF Sewing Pattern from Rebecca Mae Designs

Sherri Noel  of Rebecca Mae Designs  designed this bag to hold her coupons in an organized and easy-to-access way.  At first glance it looks like a clutch bag, but there is a strap, among many other thoughtful and well planned features such as:


2″ of gusset depth for coupons

  1. front pocket for grocery list, loyalty cards and “valid today only” coupons

  2. back pocket secures a checkbook and calculator

  3. pen sleeve

  4. lobster clasp for keys and shopping cards

  5. hang from the seat of a shopping cart

This coupon organizer measures approximately 8.5″ wide x 6″ high x 2″ deep.  A flap closure keeps everything covered.  I might make this out of oilcloth, vinyl, or laminated cotton.  (Shopping carts can be so dirty!)
