Pattern Description:

This is a beginner-friendly pattern. It has a top-zip closure, and two topstitched pockets on the inside of the bag. The bag is only front/back (no sides), so that's why it goes together quickly and easily. There are bottom gussets, which give it a 4″ depth. Adding the ribbons is optional, but I do give direction in the pattern on how and when to attach them, in case you do want to use them in your bag.

  • 13" long x 10" tall x 4" deep
