Emma Small Shoulder Bag Sewing Pattern

Pattern Description:

The Emma is a great little 'grab and run' bag when you don't need to take a lot of stuff with you!

Complete with a cute little frill and fun plaited strap, the Emma closes with a magnetic snap and has two interior zipper pockets to keep your valuables secure! Great weekend project and you can even use up some of those leftovers in your stash!


The pattern comes ready to print out on standard A4 paper OR you can also print on Letter or Foolscape simply by checkling the "Disable shrink to fit" or similar in your printers settings. Printing Instructions are included!

The pattern for Emma has 26 pages of instructions which include 37 step by step colour photos. There are 6 photos of the finished bag, printing instructions and test squares to check scale. 5 Pattern pieces are included PLUS a TEXT ONLY version (4 pages) of the instructions comes bundled with your pattern for printing purposes, should you not need or wish to print all of the photos! Simply refer to your electronic versions for photos if needed! Saves on ink!

ALL my patterns have measurements for both Metric and Imperial and seam allowances are included!
