Zynah Bag is a medium-sized bag with a hidden zipper pocket on the front, and a magnetic snap-secured slip pocket on the back. The main compartment of the bag is secured with a zippered placket. The interior of the bag has a zippered pocket and two slip pockets. The side hidden connectors can be sewn with vinyl, cork or woven fabric. Two strap options are provided so you can wear the bag as a shoulder bag or crossbody bag.

This bag has no exposed raw edges and does not use bias tape. It is turned through an opening left at the bottom of the lining, then the opening in the lining panels is closed through the opening in the interior zipper pocket. This pattern is suitable for most domestic sewing machine.
