  • Topstitching

Pattern Description:

Inspired by the sun and its rays, Candy is a round lined summer bag with a radiating design on the front.

#A practical design#

An original design is nice but when the design contributes to make the bag more practical : it's even better! That's why the "rays" on the front of the bag form 4 pockets allowing you be more organized!

Additionally you'll find#2 tutorials# on my website to add a mobile phone pocket and a zippered pocket to this bag lining : http://sacotin.com/en/tag/candy-en/

#Infinite variations#

Use only one fabric with contrasting topstitching to highlight the design lines or combine 2,3,4 different fabrics as you wish !

In the instructions you'll find all the information to easily personalize your Candy bag ; an illustration shows the position of each pattern piece and the fabric requirements are detailed. This way you'll know exactly in which fabric you'll need to cut each piece for your finished bag to look like the vision you had.
