Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Normal use of sewing machine, and basic rotary cutting skills

Pattern Description:

Here is another recycled denim item to enjoy. The lovely combination of the washed denim, and the Liberty prints, create such a "vintage" feel.
This is a cross body bag with a delightful embellished front panel. The bag is lined, and has a large internal pocket which is divided into two sections; one for a notebook and one for a pencil. When you download the pattern you will find 12 pages of step by step instructions and staged photographs. Techniques clearly taught are: how to make the Suffolk Puff flower head; making a narrow folded bias stem; simple freezer paper applique, and sewing a zip and lining in at the same time. This last technique is such a neat and useful one to know. I am sure you would use it time and again.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • The finished bag measures 8" x 10 1/2"


  • Pieces of different tones of washed blue jeans denim. I also purchased a light-weight denim for making straps, as I find the jeans denim tends to be too bulky for this purpose.
  • Two pieces of wadding 10" x 12"
  • Internal pocket fabric: 9" x 15"
  • Small piece of freezer paper
  • Liberty print fabric scraps, or similar
  • Sewing machine and sewing threads
  • Rotary cutting equipment
  • Hand sewing equipment
  • one 3/4" (20 mm) swivel clip for strap attachment
  • Lining fabric: two pieces approx 9" x 11 1/2"
