Pattern Description:

You will love this bag for its size and its compartments! This medium-sized bag is roomy enough for everything you need when exploring the city. Not only is there a zippered pocket on the inside, this bag also comes with a large slip pocket on the back and has two smaller slip pockets on the front, which are folded in decorative pleats. The magnetic snap closure is connected to the flap with an o-ring. The long strap makes this bag perfect to be carried across the body.

The pdf file comes with 18 pages of instructions, 44 pictures and 6 pattern pieces. All measurements are given in centimeters and inches.
