Pattern Description:

With this pattern you get a total of 25 pages of instructions, a bonus of 7 pages of condensed instructions to print out and take to your sewing room, 9 pages of pattern pieces, a total of 26 illustrations, and 16 photos!

I designed this bag pattern because I wanted something to carry cross body or over my shoulder that was not heavy but was big enough to carry what I needed! This bag is big enough to carry a large wallet, glasses, cellphone, makeup bag, etc. and there is a large front flap pocket that is perfect for your "to do" list, grocery list, and whatever smaller item you need.

I love this bag because it is easy to make but unique enough to stimulate your imagination with the use of contrasting or coordinating fabrics. It is the perfect size - not too big but not too little to use every day.

I have been involved in the purse pattern business since 2009, selling patterns online through my own website. I love making handbags and have just recently started designing my own bag patterns with an emphasis on people who are just starting out with making their handbags and may need more instructions, illustrations, and photos.
