Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

--- PLEASE NOTE: this is a FREE tutorial from my website. You are welcome to check out this pattern and the instructions on my website by following the link above (right underneath the headline). For your convenience I decided to offer the complete tutorial as a PDF for download, if you prefer to have everything in one structured document.---

Customize your handmade handbag by adding a very practical and spacious elasticized pocket! Not only is this pocket 3D-shaped so that you can fit more items into it - it is also divided in the center for more convenience, to keep your things organized.
I used this pocket in my "All Day Out Bag" sewing pattern. What I like about this pocket is that is reaches across the whole width of the bag interior - plenty of room to arrange your stuff!

The pdf file comes with 4 pages of instructions and 11 color photographs.
