ABOUT THIS PROJECT:

These very easy instructions are great for those with basic to advanced sewing skills. As functional as it is beautiful, this bag features both interior and exterior pockets to hold all of your important items! The interior is fully lined and customizable interior pockets are great for holding your cell phone, a spare pen (don't you hate it when you can't find a pen?), and your wallet - or whatever else you choose to store! Pocket placement is fully customizable - you decide how many pockets you want, and what size to make them! This bag even features a handy swivel hook key fob - imagine no more digging through the bottom of your bag for your keys! You choose between a velcro or magnetic snap closure to keep contents secure. There are 24 full-color photos to illustrate the simple step-by-step instructions. Cutting instructions are included; all the pieces are easy to measure rectangles with no printing required.

These instructions come with another great feature - you can make three different sized bags with it! The small bag works great as a purse, the medium bag is a wonderful large purse or small diaper bag, and the large bag makes a perfect diaper bag, or book bag.

Finished dimensions are:
Small bag - 11" wide x 7 1/2" tall x 3" deep
Medium bag - 14" x 10" x 3 1/2"
Large bag - 17" x 12 1/2" x 4"


??? IS THIS SEWING PATTERN REALLY "EASY TO FOLLOW?"
