Pattern Description:

I decided to call this bag design "Liebling's bag". Liebling - as part of my label name - means "darling" in German but as an adjective it also has the meaning "favorite". That pretty much sums it up: this is going to be your new favorite bag!
This medium sized bag comes with a lot of hardware, which makes it look super stylish and professional! The strap ends are connected to gate rings, which are then hooked into grommets on either top corner of the bag (gate rings are rings that snap open, for more information please have a look at the blog post mentioned above). There is a zipper pocket on the back of the bag as well as a slip pocket and an elasticized pocket on the inside. Plenty of room for all your essentials! The pdf file comes with 13 pages of instructions, 34 pictures and 2 full size pattern pieces. All measurements are given in centimeters and inches.
Please note that this pattern may not be republished or distributed without permission. However you are welcome to sell items made with this pattern. In this case I'd appreciate if you gave me credit as the pattern designer.
