Pattern Description:

The Lombard Street Bag, whose name was inspired by Lombard Street in San Francisco, is perfect for keeping your iPad or other similar sized electronic device nice and secure and well protected in its specially designed zippered pocket. The bag also features 2 large front slip pockets PLUS a hidden slip pocket for your mobile phone. There is also a third large front pocket with a hidden zipper to keep your valuables secure. The Lombard Street Bag opens with a recessed zipper leading to a spacious interior, where another 4 slip pockets keep you organised! Add some nice shiny rivets to your adjustable strap and nobody will believe you made it yourself!

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 the Lombard Street Cross the Body Hipster Bag has a full requirements list with suggestions on where to obtain your hardware, 47 pages of comprehensive instructions which include 81 step by step colour photos. There are 4 photos of the finished bag, printing instructions and test squares to print to check your scale. 13 Pattern pieces are included. PLUS a TEXT ONLY version of the instructions (9 pages) 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 too!
